|While ASU was going to the Rose Bowl, Arizona
State's Kurt Wallin was serving a two year mission for The Church of
Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Rochester, N.Y. "I watched them
beat Nebraska on TV, and when they played in the Rose Bowl, I was at
a church member's house watching," he said. "The people had a baby
who was asleep, so I had to hold back on my emotions whenever they
did something. I knew almost all of 'em, and I was proud. I sort of
wished I was there, but I knew the importance of being where I was,"
