ASU junior wide receiver Matt Miller expresses his anger after dropping a pass from quarterback Sam Keller in the last minute of the game against UA in Tucson on Friday afternoon.
TUCSON -- A dreamy regular season ended in nightmarish fashion on Friday.

The ASU football team made the trek down Interstate 10 looking to put an exclamation point on an overachieving year that saw the Sun Devils win every game except for losses against two of the top four teams in the country.

Instead, they turned in a startlingly poor performance, losing to intrastate rival UA 34-27 before 55,095 fans at Arizona Stadium.

Wild cats reign in ASU's shadows

They may not be from Tucson, but more than 100 wild cats have infiltrated ASU's campus.

And they're not leaving anytime soon.

ASU is home to many stray cats, said David Brixen, director of facilities management, who said the cats use tunnels that run throughout ASU's campus.

"These cats are a little bit wild," Brixen said. "If people try to approach them they can scratch and bite."

TUCSON -- If UA head coach Mike Stoops knew the Territorial Cup was going to be gift-wrapped, he would have prepared a thank you card ahead of time.

After all, that's only proper when a 14-point favorite hand-delivers in-state bragging rights.

In one of the most dramatic upsets this rivalry has seen, UA turned five turnovers into 24 points Friday, salvaging a season that was full of more frustration than jubilation.
FOOTBALL

Ridiculous mistakes doom Sun Devils in Tucson grudge match

The Good: Though many of them were in vain, the ASU football team actually gained 504 yards of offense against rival UA, including 414 via the air. Special teams -- which had been the Sun Devils' Achilles' heel at times this season -- enjoyed possibly its finest game of the year, as it averaged 32 yards on three punt returns and 35.7 yards on three kickoff returns.
