Arizona State opens their 2013 season on Thursday night, welcoming Sacramento State to Tempe to kick off Todd Graham's second year with the Sun Devils.

Arizona State's equipment staff shared a photo of the Sun Devils' tunnel in preparation for the game, giving fans a look at the last thing the team will see before taking the field.

At the end of the tunnel is a portrait of Pat Tillman, the former star linebacker and Army Ranger killed in Afghanistan in 2004. The powerful image shows Tillman in his Sun Devils No. 42 uniform from behind, as if he is leading the team onto the field.
