A: ASU - Is any explanation really necessary here? The "other" state university, known originally as the Tempe Normal School, has nothing on Arizona's first university. ASU's satanic descendants failed to pick up a win last year in any of the big rivalry matchups. Football? UA. Basketball? UA twice. Softball? UA three times.

Let's face it: Scoreboards don't lie.

That's one very important rule that all of you need to learn as you embark on this collegiate journey. For example, if a Sun Devil fan gives you crap about any of our sports teams, fire back with "34-27."

If those tallies go unappreciated, there are plenty of less-heralded sports in which we kicked their asses as well. [Read article]

The football team needed new jerseys, so they took the offer. The school immediately changed its colors to red and blue, eventually settling on cardinal red and navy blue. While navy is the dominant color of uniforms, fans usually wear red to games. [Read article]

Best bests of the fall semester

Must-see TV...

  • UA football at Utah; 5 p.m., Sept. 2, ESPN; from Salt Lake City

  • UA men's hoops vs. Kansas (Maui Invitational); Nov. 21, ESPN; from Lahaina, Hawaii

    Some of the best big-ticket sporting events the fall semester has to offer won't be seen at Arizona Stadium or in McKale Center, but that doesn't mean the UA's resident powerhouse program and its most promising up-and-comer aren't in action. [Read article]
