Cats head up I-10 with sights set on Territorial Cup

Though a multimillion dollar bowl game - or any bowl, for that matter - is not on the line, the Territorial Cup will still feature a fierce rivalry game between bitter in-state rivals.

Arizona (2-9, 1-6 Pacific-10 Conference) travels to Arizona State (4-7, 1-6) Friday to try to take back the Territorial Cup - the nation's oldest trophy recognized by the NCAA. The game, which starts at 1 p.m., will be televised nationally on Fox Sports Net, with pre- and post-game shows on Fox Sports Net Arizona. [Read article]

Rick Anderson won't be around to bail the UA men's basketball team out of trouble this time when the Florida Gators look for redemption against the Wildcats.

Arizona will meet the Southeastern Conference school Friday night at 7 in the MassMutual Classic, held at the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Mass.

The two schools last met Nov. 9, 2001, in the nail-biting championship game of the Coaches vs. Cancer Classic. In that game, which the Wildcats won 75-71, it was Anderson, the former UA forward, who scored the final six points of the game, leading Arizona to its second upset of a ranked team in as many games.

Tourney seeding at stake for Cats

The UA volleyball team has gone from a non-tournament-bound team to possibly hosting a tourney game. It will have a chance to continue its amazing climb Saturday at No. 22 UC Santa Barbara.

No. 21 Arizona (17-13, 10-8 Pacific 10 Conference) travels to the Thunderdome on Saturday to close out the regular season at UCSB (18-8, 14-4 Big West Conference), in hopes of strengthening its NCAA tournament position. The brackets for the tournament will be announced Sunday at 6 p.m. on ESPNEWS. [Read article]

Opponent analysis: Walter leads dangerous pass attack

Coming into this season, Arizona State (4-7, 1-6 Pacific 10 Conference) was ranked among the Top 25 in the nation and had a Heisman Trophy candidate at quarterback. The Sun Devils were expected by many to contend with USC for the Pac-10 crown.

However, with injuries to some key players and an abundance of inconsistent play, all ASU is playing for is to stay out of last place.

The Wildcats travel to Tempe Friday afternoon to play the 77th game against intrastate archrival ASU at Sun Devil Stadium. [Read article]

photo Wildcat seniors seeking vengeance

When the Wildcats take the field against the hated Sun Devils this Thanksgiving weekend, an elite group of twelve guys will be gracing themselves with the Arizona "A" for the last time.

The Wildcats' senior group has not only been through as much controversy as any collegiate athletes in recent memory, but they have also had a hard time grabbing wins - which would make a victory in Friday's finale a real cherry on the top of their careers. [Read article]

Cats better than Sun Devils in several areas

Two ideologies will meet on Frank Kush Field in Tempe's Sun Devil Stadium this Friday.

No, we are not talking about communism vs. capitalism. This is much more important: Sun Devils vs. Wildcats.

The 77th Territorial Cup game will be played with much more at stake than a trophy that, until recently, was on display at Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix.

The hatred that these two schools share for each other is so strong that marriages have not been allowed because the prospective fiancˇe is either a Sun Devil or a Wildcat - whichever one would taint the blood of the family. [Read article]

Hunley, Chow focus on current duties

Ricky Hunley and Norm Chow aren't exactly in the talking mood.

Hunley, linebackers coach for the Cincinnati Bengals, and Chow, offensive coordinator for the Southern California Trojans, are keeping quiet about their interviews for the UA head football coaching position last week.

Hunley has "respectfully declined" to comment on the situation for now, according to P.J. Combs, Bengals assistant public relations director. [Read article]
