Arizona game-winning FG attempt just wide as ASU takes Territorial Cup
Arizona Wildcats kicker Josh Pollack drilled four field goals in the Territorial Cup match up against Arizona State.
His fifth attempt of the day sailed wide, giving the Sun Devils a 41-40 victory in Tucson and effectively ending the Wildcats season.
The kicker was a perfect four-for-four on field goals and two-for-two on extra points on the afternoon, but couldn’t drill the 48-yarder with 11 seconds remaining, which would have given Arizona the win.
