While the rest of the country is preparing for fall, it's still hot in the desert.

The temperate in Tempe, Arizona, was still 106 a few minutes before Thursday night's game between New Mexico State and Arizona State.

The forcecast was for it to remain 100 or above through at least 10 p.m. before dropping to a cool 95 by midnight.

That's hot, even for the Sun Devils, who are used to the weather in the desert.
