For the first time since 1937, Arizona State and Arizona will meet for the Territorial Cup in week one.

It’s all a part of the Sun Devils revised, 10-game conference only schedule that is to be played amid the Coronavirus pandemic. Welcome to college football in 2020. The matchup with the Wildcats is set for Saturday, Sep. 26 in Tucson.

“I appreciate the diligence of Commissioner Larry Scott and all the Pac-12 presidents and athletic directors in coming up with a plan that will allow us to play football this year,” said ASU coach Herm Edwards in a release from Sun Devil Athletics. “The health, safety and welfare of our student-athletes, coaches, staff – anyone who touches our programs – will continue to be at the forefront as we attempt to navigate our way through the coming months.”

The schedule features five home games and five road games, with one bye week for ASU that will come in mid-October.

After the opening Territorial Cup, the Devils’ return for a home opener against Stanford. Perhaps the most daunting portion of the 10-game gauntlet comes when ASU goes on the road in back-to-back weeks in November to take on Washington State and USC.

Here is a breakdown of the games that will be played. Kickoff times are still to be determined.
