Running back Marion Grice ran for 159 yards and two touchdowns for the Sun Devils (8-5), and was named offensive MVP. Grice played with a heavy heart after his brother was murdered in Houston just last week.

Kelly ended the season completing a school-record 67.1 percent of his passes.
Senior running back Gee Gee Greene was the lone brightspot for Navy, rushing for 111 yards and returning a kickoff 95 yards for a touchdown in the third quarter.
