Arizona keeps Territorial Cup

Arizona kicked a 32-yard field goal at the end of regulation to defeat Arizona State 20-17.

All the momentum was in Arizona State's favor.

From a first half of dominance to a second half of a turned tide.

It didn't matter.

Kyle Williams miffed a punt with a little over a minute to go and Arizona took advantage, as Alex Zendejas kicked a 32-yard field goal to keep the Territorial Cup.

Arizona had a dominating first half in which ASU struggled to get any offense going.

Arizona also failed to have a super offense, but a Keola Antolin 67-yard touchdown run was enough to give the Wildcats the lead at the half.

With that being said, it also added an Orlando Vargas blocked punt and ensuing touchdown recovery, as Arizona led 14-0 at half.

Late in the game, on 4th and 12 from Arizona's 14, ASU signal caller Danny Sullivan found Williams in the back of the end zone for the game tying touchdown.

With Arizona being forced to punt, it seemed that ASU would have decent field position and an opportunity to win it.

However, Williams tried to do a bit too much and Mike Turner recovered the fumble to kill any ASU momentum and basically seal the win for the Wildcats.
