The Arizona State University Sun Devil Club will unveil its first-ever Sun Devil Away Game Viewing Party on Saturday, Oct. 15.  For the first time, Sun Devil fans can gather at the Harkins Theatres at the Tempe Marketplace, 2000 E. Rio Salado Parkway, to watch ASU’s conference road tilt against No. 9 University of Oregon in Eugene, Ore.

The viewing party will be the first of its kind at ASU and offers a new experience for fans hoping to gather with other fans to cheer on their Sun Devils from over a thousand miles away.

Saturday’s kickoff is set for 7:15 p.m. PST and the doors at the viewing party will open a little over an hour beforehand at 6:00 p.m.  The game will be broadcast in high definition digital projection on one of the theatre’s large screens and the Sun Devil Club hopes to have up to 250 people in attendance.  Admission to the event will be free of charge and will be offered on a first come, first serve basis.  Tickets will be handed out to approximately the first 250 people in line, at which point they will be allowed to enter the theatre.  Admission is not guaranteed once the theatre reaches capacity.

The game will be broadcast live on ESPN and the University of Oregon will also be the host of ESPN’s College Gameday on the same day, as well.  The Sun Devils (5-1, 3-0 Pac-12) currently sit atop the standings in the Pac-12 South Division while the Ducks are undefeated in conference play (2-0) and enter the game on a four game winning streak.  ASU is currently ranked No. 18 in the most recent AP poll and No. 20 in the weekly USA Today/Coaches Poll.

The game will be shown in its entirety, without interruption or reduction of volume for the duration of the broadcast.

Additionally, Sun Devil Athletic sponsors located in the Tempe Marketplace are extending special offers to Sun Devil fans attending the viewing party.  Visit the following stores on Saturday for details on special Viewing Party offers:

No outside food and drink will be permitted into the theatre.  Harkins reserves the right to deny entrance to the event to anyone appearing to be intoxicated or disruptive in a negative way.  Children ages 15 and under must be accompanied by an adult for the duration of the game.
