Saturday's game with Troy was a perfect ending to a perfect 8-0 Sun Belt Record.
Arkansas State dominated Troy 45-14 ending a four game losing streak to the Trojans. The Red Wolves finished the regular season 10-2 and a perfect 8-0 in conference play.
The fans stormed the field, the students were jumping up and down chanting ASU, ASU.
The Red Wolves had accomplished something that no other Sun Belt team has, winning 10 ball games while going undefeated in conference play.
"We are a little greedy," First year ASU Head Coach Hugh Freeze said in the post game press conference. "We wanted the Sun Belt Championship all to ourselves."
No Sun Belt team has ever won 11 games in a season, something that Arkansas State can accomplished with a Go Daddy.Com Bowl win over Northern Illinois on January 8th.
After losing two out of three of their first games of the season to Illinois and Virginia Tech, Arkansas State is currently holding a nine game winning streak, the longest since 1975.
ASU is just the third school in Sun Belt history to ever go undefeated in SBC play, joining Troy (8-0) and North Texas in 2004 (7-0), 2003 (7-0) and 2002 (6-0).
Arkansas State remained undefeated at Arkansas State Stadium with today's win over Troy. This is the first time since 2005 that the Red Wolves have accomplished this feat.
Dr. Dean Lee, the Athletic Director at Arkansas State and Arkansas Governor Mike Beebe joined Coach Freeze and his football team at mid field for the Sun Belt Trophy presentation.
"This has been a long time coming for Arkansas State," one senior football player said. "This is what it's all about."
Fans and the team stayed in the middle of the stadiums floor to enjoy and rejoice what this team has accomplished this season.
Freeze became the No. 14 FBS Coach to ever win 10 ball games in a season and accomplished this feat in his first season in FBS play.
Freeze has made finishing a game priority this year for his Red Wolves, ASU outscored Troy 14-0 in its season finale. This ASU defense hasn't allowed a fourth quarter score in five it's last 6 football games.
ASU has held a double-figure lead 10-0 after the first quarter for the fifth straight game and has now outscored it's last five opponents 64-2 over that span.
ASU won its 7th game this season by a double-figure margin, the most since 1987.
Troy is the sixth opponent ASU has held under 20 points this year. The Trojans are also the seventh opponent that the Red Wolves has held under 100 yards rushing as a team.
