Sun Devil Stadium’s midfield makeover ahead of the Territorial Cup between Arizona State and Arizona was quite the sight to be seen.

It took a lot of hard work from groundskeeper Brian Johnson to not only paint in an epic logo that saw ASU’s Sparky cast a shadow on the outline of the state of Arizona at midfield, but to repair the damage caused from the ASU crowd storming the field after a 31-28 win over No. 6 Oregon a week ago.

Arizona’s players weren’t so appreciative. The Wildcats were seen stomping and tearing up the design before the game.

ASU fans were not fond of the actions of the Arizona players and made their feelings known on Twitter:
