The clash of rivalry between Arizona and Arizona ended as soon as it began. From the opening kick, Sun Devils fully dominated their way to a 70-7 win over Tucson’s Cats.
This was the most points brought up by the ASU against Arizona. The Territory Cup will remain in Tempe for the fourth consecutive year.
DJ Taylor retook the opening kick from the opposing finish zone and took it 105 yards all the way to make a home call to put the demons ahead 7-0 in the blink of an eye to kickstart the game.
Then in Arizona’s first offensive possession, a botched delivery made the ASU tumble and rebound. Running back DeaMonte Trayanum set to make Arizona push with a running five yards.
All the demons will be out there and the nail struck in the coffin early on. Arizona coughed the ball seven times, and as expected in the game’s attacking plan, ASU continued to pound the boulder.
The Demons had 10 landings, including three from Rashad White and one dash from Jayden Daniels.
Daniel Nagata scored a goal as well, overtaking Jackson. He added the evening’s final score in the fourth quarter to become the first born Chinese player to score a touchdown in FBS history.
The Sun Devils ran 227 yards and tossed 260. This was the first time since 1969 that the program had placed 70 points.
It is the first time since 1975-1978 that Arizona State University has won four consecutive Regional Cups against Arizona.
Demons obliterated the wildcats on their land, and Herm Edwards remained undefeated in his run against school in the South with his third straight victory against the opponent.
