It’s only fitting that a season full of dark moments for the Arizona Wildcats will end at night.

Arizona will wrap up the 2019 regular season—and almost certainly the season as a whole—on Nov. 30 when it takes on the Arizona State Sun Devils in Tempe. And for the first time since 2016, the Territorial Cup will be played at night, with ESPN airing the contest at 8 p.m. MT.

Arizona (4-6, 2-5 Pac-12) is currently on a five-game losing streak, a skid that is likely to reach six on Saturday night with No. 8 Utah coming to Tucson as heavy favorites. ASU (5-5, 2-5) isn’t doing much better, having dropped four in a row.

The Wildcats are 49-42-1 all-time against the Sun Devils but have lost the last two meetings and five of the last seven. Arizona’s last win at Sun Devil Stadium was in 2011, with the three losses there since then coming by an average of 21.3 points.
