FSN Arizona asks fans to pick their favorite moment from the Arizona State/Arizona football rivalry

November 14, 2007

Was it Arizona State's 56-14 rout in Tucson that capped its perfect 1996 regular season? Could it be Chuck Cecil's 106-yard interception return for a touchdown in 1986 that help give ASU its only loss of the year? What about Trung Canidate's 288 rushing yards in 1998? Or was it "The Catch," "The Streak" or "The Run?"

There have been many memorable events to come out of the storied Arizona State/Arizona football rivalry that dates back to 1899 and from Nov. 13 - 26, FSN Arizona is asking fans from both schools to pick their favorite moment from the annual Territorial Cup battle.

There are 10 choices to choose from -- five from both schools -- and fans can go to FSN Arizona's website at to vote for their favorite. The top-five selections will then be unveiled on Friday, Nov. 30 when the network airs its annual one-hour "Duel in the Desert Preview Show" live from the Fox Sports Grill in Scottsdale at 5:30 p.m.

The live show will offer the most comprehensive preview of this year's game in Tempe with appearances from former ASU and UA players, head coach interviews, profiles and analysis. In addition, both cheerleading squads, including Wilbur and Sparky, will be at the grill and tickets to the game will be given away to the audience.

Here is the list of moments to vote for in chronological order:

1957 - ASU caps its first-ever undefeated season with a 47-7 win
1975 - "The Catch" - John Jefferson's TD grab
1982 - UA upsets #6 ASU, knocks ASU out of the Rose Bowl
1982-90 - "The Streak" - UA goes 8-0-1 against ASU in this span
1983 - Max Zendejas game winning FG as time expires

1992 - "The Run" - Kevin Galbreath's TD run gives ASU a 7-6 win
1996 - ASU ends its perfect season with a 56-14 rout in Tucson
1998 - Trung Canidate runs for 288 yards as UA wins 50-42
