Hey, it's still a rivalry.
Even though the Arizona Wildcats have struggled this year, coming away with an upset win over the rival Arizona St. Sun Devils would make the Wildcats season. But no one in Vegas believes the Wildcats will pull this off.
The Sun Devils are currently installed as 10.5 point favorites over the Wildcats. Arizona enters the game with the 4th ranked passing offense in the country at 368.3 yards per game but that's where the positive vibe ends. The defense allows 36.1 points per game for 110th in the nation and the Wildcats have lost eight of their last nine games.
Arizona St. isn't faring much better. Though sitting at a serviceable 6-4 this season, they've lost three of their last four.
Rivalry games can be quite the blessing for teams looking for momentum. The Wildcats seem to be arriving at the perfect time for the Sun Devils to right the ship.
