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

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:
