Without a doubt, this is the most important game on the Arizona Football schedule every single year. The decision for Arizona and Arizona State to continue moving conferences as a pair greatly benefits the two schools, and just the thought of a football season without the Territorial Cup feels bleak. Well fear not, because the rivalry game that spans over 120 years will remain alive and vitriolic.
The Arizona State game, naturally being played late in the year, will be entirely dependent on how well Jaden Rashada develops over the season. He showed some serious growing pains over the course of the 2023 season, but the return of running back Cameron Skattebo will be a nice crutch for him to lean on. The Arizona offensive line will also have to deal with former Wildcat-turned-traitor Jacob Kongaika along Arizona State's defensive line. Rivalry weekend always brings interesting games and unpredictable outcomes, so this game should forever be circled on the calendar.
