On Wednesday, the University of Arizona released its trailer in anticipation of Saturday’s in-state rivalry game versus Arizona State for the Territorial Cup.
As they’ve done in past such videos, the school featured a cowboy character, hyping the showdown in the video, titled ‘Duel in the Desert,’ to a presumed son or grandson in some remote area.
The Wildcats (7-4, 4-4) take on the Sun Devils (9-2, 7-1) Saturday at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m., with the game being aired on the Pac-12 Networks and News-Talk 92.3 KTAR.
Arizona leads the all-time series 47-38-1 and in the Pac-10/Pac-12 era, holds a 19-15-1 advantage. But since the turn of the century, ASU has an 8-5 edge, including last year’s thrilling 41-34 win in Tucson.
