    TEMPE, Ariz. -- Arizona State quarterback Andrew Walter will miss the team's bowl game after separating his right shoulder in the Sun Devils' 34-27 upset loss at Arizona on Friday.

    That means the senior's record-breaking college career is over, leaving him No. 5 on the Pac-10 career list for yards passing. Walter broke John Elway's Pac-10 record for career touchdown with 85. Elway had 77 at Stanford.

    Walter was hurt in the fourth quarter Friday when his shoulder was slammed to the ground on a tackle. Tests Saturday revealed a third-degree shoulder separation, ruling him out for any bowl game.

    Arizona State (8-3, 5-3 Pac-10) probably is headed for the Holiday Bowl, with sophomore Sam Keller taking over for Walter. Arizona State (No. 20 ESPN/USA Today, No. 18 AP) is expected to get the Holiday Bowl bid if No. 1 Southern California plays for the national championship in the Orange Bowl and California goes to the Rose Bowl.

    Walter was among the nation's leaders in touchdown passes this season with a school-record 30. He threw for 320 yards Friday to finish with 3,150 -- the third consecutive season he has topped the 3,000-yard mark. His career total is 10,617 yards.

    Walter also set school records for career touchdown passes, career completions (777), single-season yards passing (3,877 in 2002), single-game yards passing (538 against Oregon in 2002).
