Jon Rahm is a proud Arizona State alum so you had to think he was excited to visit Sun Devil Stadium for ASU’s home football game against USC.

And of course he had the U.S. Open trophy in tow.

Rahm and wife Kelley were special guests for the evening, and during one break in the action, went on the field to show off the hardware and take in a little public adoration from the fans.

“Great to be back here,” he said in a selfie video posted later while hanging out on the sideline.

Rahm won the U.S. Open at Torrey Pines in June. While at ASU, he won 11 times, second only to Phil Mickelson’s total of 16. He met Kelley, a track-and-field athlete at ASU so Saturday night brought everything full circle.

ASU won the game, snapping a two-game losing streak.

But neither the victory nor the appearance by a major champion is what had people talking the most. No, that honor goes to a fox that somehow found its way into the stadium and onto the field early in the first quarter.

With the help of stadium officials, the fox was directed through a gate and escaped into the night unharmed.
