On Thursday night the ASU Red Wolves would take its first Sun Belt Conference win against the Florida International Panthers in Miami, Fla.

The 34-20  victory marked ASU’s first win in Miami since 2006 and would extend their road winning streak to five games.

Senior Ryan Aplin became the Sun Belt Conference’s all-time leader in career offense with 10,365 yards, throwing for 223 with 15-of-23 completions.

Junior David Oku would finish the night with three rushing touchdowns, while freshman J.D. Mckissic posted his first 100 yards in receiving, giving him a game-high of 124 yards on five catches and a touchdown.

ASU’s momentum would pick up after Sterling Young intercepted a pass, returning the ball for 29 yards to the FIU 7 yard-line.

ASU completed the night with 421 total yards offensively, compared to FIU’s 341.

The Red Wolves return home for its home  match up hosting South Alabama Jaguars in the Red Wolves annual homecoming game. This will be the first meeting between the two leagues. Kick off is set for 6 p.m.
