1998, A look back: 72nd Territorial Cup Game

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - It’s the 20th anniversary of the greatest football team in Arizona Wildcats history.


The year the Cats went 12-1.

As UA prepares for Game #12 of the 2018 season, the 92nd Territorial Cup game against rival Arizona State, we remember Game #12 of 1998. The Wildcats with their win at California had just become the 2nd 10-win team in program history and the first to do it in the regular season.

Standing in front of them was history. Beat the Sun Devils for the most wins ever period in a season but most importantly keep your chances for a 1st-ever birth in the Rose Bowl alive.

That’s what stood in front of Arizona as they welcomed in ASU for the 72nd Territorial Cup game.
