If you’re a fan of uniforms, particularly the home ones, this year’s Territorial Cup is for you.
It will be the first time in series history that Arizona will wear blue at Sun Devil Stadium, pairing that with a white helmet and white pants, with ASU going with its maroon tops along with gold pants and a gold helmet featuring its Sparky mascot. Per ASU’s Rivals site, its the first time since 2014 the Sun Devils have worn the Sparky helmet in the Territorial Cup and first time at home since 2009.
Home-on-home jerseys have started to become a trend in rivalry games, with UCLA and USC traditionally doing so each year. The Civil War between Oregon and Oregon State often goes this route, as do BYU and Utah as well as the Florida/Georgia matchup each year in Jacksonville, Fla.
