The University of Arizona Wildcats versus the Arizona State Sun Devils
Arizona Stadium: Time TBA
Arizona State Facts: The Devils and the Wildcats play for the oldest traveling trophy is sports, The Territorial Cup. Sadly for all Arizona fans, the cup has lived in Tempe for many years in this decade. But I don't want to get into this. Both the Cats and the Devils have gone with several different coaching staff since both schools fired head coaches at the end of the 2001 season. As hard as it is to type and I'm not even sure I could say it out loud, Arizona State is a better program overall. What this means for this year or for the future-I don't know.
Good Cat News: As fun as playing the game on the day after Thanksgiving, the hangover would affect the crowd. No to mention the number of students who are in town. This year this won't be a problem because the game isn't until December. It will also be fun to see if Arizona has already rapped up a bowl spot by then, there is chance they may have already accepted a deal by then.
Bad Cat News: Just read the Arizona State Facts section of this blog, because I can not say it again. Head Coach Mike Stoops has proven that he can not win, when the chips are all the line. If Arizona needs to beat Arizona State to get into the bowl I'm not sure they can do it.
