Wildcats take Territorial Cup back to Tucson

TEMPE, AZ — The Arizona Wildcats, in the midst of a deeply disappointing
season, found
enough juice in the fourth quarter to rally and beat their arch-rival Arizona
State 31-27 at Sun Devil Stadium on Saturday night.

Bryson Beirne, Arizona’s backup quarterback, came in for an injured Nick
Foles late in the fourth quarter and hit Juron Criner on a 23-yard
pass with 5:18 to go to give Arizona their winning margin.

ASU got the ball back, but a drive stalled deep in Arizona territory when
Osweiler’s pass was intercepted by linebacker Jourdan Grandon.

The Sun Devils would have another opportunity, but on 2nd and 10 from
Arizona 15-yard line, Osweiler’s fourth down pass intended for Mike Willie
was knocked away as time expired.
