It's been a good weekend for Arizona State Sun Devils football -- at least on the field.
One day after the Devils defeated the Arizona Wildcats to reclaim the Territorial Cup, former Sun Devil running back/wide receiver and ex-Scottsdale Saguaro High School star D.J. Foster gave ASU fans something else to cheer about late in the fourth quarter of the Cardinals' victory over the visiting Jaguars on Sunday.
With the game tied 24-24 in the final seconds, Foster made an incredible catch along the sideline off a pass from quarterback Blaine Gabbert to set up a game-winning (and career-long) 57-yard field goal from Phil Dawson.

Foster went undrafted in 2016 but was signed by the New England Patriots as an undrafted free agent. The Cardinals signed Foster off the Patriots' practice squad in September, but he didn't see any action on the field with Arizona until last weekend's game at the Texans.
Foster played running back and wide receiver at ASU. He recorded over 2,300 rushing yards and 2,400 receiving yards for the Sun Devils from 2012-15, and he scored 32 total touchdowns. He rushed for over 5,000 yards at Saguaro HS.
