Happy Territorial Cup day everyone!

- We get the festivities started with Shane Dale joining Wildcat Radio to talk about the rivalry, because he is probably the leading expert on UA/ASU football

- This game has become about bowl placement in addition to pride and bragging rights, and who will get a chance to either play in Vegas or Chase Field

- Here are the Arizona players that are worrying ASU fans

- You can check out our predictions, and also leave your own to see how it compares with other Arizona fans. As we all realize, no one really knows what's going to happen because this is the T-Cup. Given that, everyone at ABC15 picked an ASU win, with the UA alum picking the biggest blowout, because of course. That UA alum also has three questions heading into the game


- Are ASU fans really less confident about this game than normal?

- You can't be a real UA fan until you pass AZ Central's quiz (I got 15 of 20, should have been 17)

- AZ Sports has three keys for ASU to pull out the win. We counter with three keys for an Arizona win

- The Tucson and Tempe mayors have bet craft beer on the game. Meh

- The guy behind the Daily Wildcat prank explains what went into it

- Remember when Graham benched Taylor Kelly for Mike Bercovici in last year's T-Cup? Well, House of Sparky wonders if Berco should fear that happening to him

- Be aware that Sun Devil Stadium has different entry points this year than normal


- Arizona is one of three schools that are strong contenders to land Josh Jackson. The other two are Michigan State and Kansas

- Here are the three things we learned from Thursday night's win over Boise State


- Team Wild has an enormous lead in the Fall World Series heading into Sunday's finale. Gotta hate that Twitter karma Team Cats

Other sports

- Women's soccer will be playing Stanford in the Sweet 16 during the first half of the football game

- Women's basketball plays at USD on Saturday

- GymCat Krysten Howard would like to be a flying cheetah

- Swimming and diving had a good performance on Friday

Tucson news
