TUCSON (KGUN9-TV)- In the past four years, the road team who has picked up the win in the Territorial Cup Game.
Arizona State won at Arizona Stadium last year, but with the Cats traveling to Tempe on Saturday, they're hoping to keep the trend going.
"One year you think one team's a lot better and you think one team will come in an smack them and its just the complete opposite the next year so we're going to try to continue to streak this year," said UA Linebacker Jake Fischer.
UA Defensive Lineman Tevin Hood added, "It's one of those bad joo joo type things. It's in our favor. I guess more than anything, its hard to win on the road in a rivalry came and we're coming in with a hard edge. So it's definitely like a trick in a tool bag."
With an Arizona victory, the Wildcats would get to eight wins this season and would likely get a better bowl bid. An added incentive for the Cats if they won, ASU would not be able to host the Pac-12 Championship.
ASU will host Arizona Saturday at 7:30 pm on the Pac-12 Network.
