‘Well, this is awkward’ – hardware intended for UA ends up in ASU hands

The Territorial Cup currently belongs to ASU — and now, thanks to a shipping error, so does another piece of hardware UA would like to have.

The American Football Coaches Association — which, like many national organizations, appears to not understand the difference between Arizona and Arizona State — sent a plaque intended for all-time UA leading rusher Ka’Deem Carey to Tempe instead of Tucson.

ASU media relations specialist Maggie Emmons reported the mistake Monday.

The response from the good folks in the Old Pueblo was swift and equally as entertaining.

It appears ASU will be kind enough to hand over the award to its rivals to the south — though Emmons made it clear the Sun Devils don’t intend on being overly generous.

Shots fired. The 2014 Duel in the Desert can’t get here soon enough.
