TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- Arizona State coach Todd Graham was still a little shaken Monday after a small plane he was riding in with his son during a weekend recruiting trip plummeted about 25,000 feet before leveling off.

Graham and his son Bo, Arizona State's running backs coach, were flying to Dallas to watch a recruit play when they were startled by a loud noise as the plane hit 35,000 feet.

Within a few minutes, the plane started into a dive as the pilots fought to control it. The Grahams sat in the back wearing oxygen masks.

The pilots were able to level the plane off at 10,000 feet and made an emergency landing in Albuquerque, N.M.

The Grahams waited a few hours before continuing their trip on another plane.
