The No. 16 Arizona Wildcats head to Tempe to take on the Arizona State Sun Devils in the Territorial Cup in Week 13. Kickoff is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. ET on Saturday, November 25. If Arizona wins and Oregon loses this weekend, the Wildcats will be headed to the Pac-12 Championship to face Washington.

Arizona (8-3, 6-2 Pac-12) put together a big win over Utah in their latest game. In the 42-18 victory, quarterback Noah Fifita passed for 253 yards and two touchdowns, and the defense added two interceptions against the Utes. The Wildcats have been on a five-game winning streak since losing to USC in overtime, and will need a bit of luck out of Eugene for a shot at the conference title game this year.

ASU (3-8, 2-6 Pac-12) has gone 2-2 in their last four games. Their latest appearance ended in a brutal 49-13 loss against Oregon. The Sun Devils have dealt with multiple quarterback injuries throughout the season, and Trenton Bourguet has started under center for the majority of the season. In the loss to Oregon, Bourguet passed for 142 yards and no touchdowns.

Here’s everything you need to know and a pick for the game.

Our Best Bet for Arizona vs. Arizona State

Arizona -13

The Wildcats have been dominating as of late, and while Arizona State has been able to hang around with several Pac-12 opponents, they have not fared well against teams at the top of the conference. The Sun Devils will struggle to stop Fifita and this powerhouse offense.
