Arizona Statekicker Zane Gonzalez is the new NCAA record holder for field goals in a career.

Gonzalez hit from 35, 23 and 46 yards in Saturday night's 23-20 win overUCLA to reach 89 career field goals, passingFlorida State's Dustin Hopkins, who had 88 from 2009-12.

"You're talking about a monumental accomplishment there,'' Arizona State coach Todd Graham said of Gonzalez. "I'm proud of Zane. That's huge."

The Sun Devils needed all of those 3-point tries after sputtering offensively in the first half and watching backup quarterback Brady White limp off with a right leg injury in the fourth quarter.

In Gonzalez's career, he has connected on 89 of 111 attempts (80.2 percent). He broke former UCLA kicker Kai Forbath's Pac-12 record (85) last week.
