The Arizona State Sun Devils will host the No. 15 Arizona Wildcats for the Territorial Cup at 3:30 p.m. this afternoon and quarterback Jaden Rashada is expected to return and start in this rivalry showdown. Rashada has missed the last nine games for the Sun Devils with a leg injury, last playing in their Week 2 loss to Oklahoma State way back on September 9. He was seen warming up prior to last week’s loss to Oregon and head coach Kenny Dillingham told the media earlier this week that there was a chance that he would play.

With his redshirt secure, the true freshman will get a chance to show out and potentially ruin the Pac-12 Championship Game hopes of ASU’s arch rival. The blue chip prospect from Pittsburg, CA, threw for 403 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception through two games prior to the injury that kept him out for over two months. He has technically been available for the last two weeks, but was still kept out as a precaution.

Arizona State enters the game as a 13-point underdog at DraftKings Sportsbook, accompanied by a total of 49.5.
