Arizona vs. ASU Football: 2012 Duel In The Desert Schedule Released

The Pac-12 released start times for various key games in the upcoming college football regular season, and that included the annual Duel In The Desert between the Arizona Wildcats and Arizona St. Sun Devils.

Arizona won in thrilling fashion last year as the 'Cats made a stand at the goal line to win 31-27. ASU won the year before thanks to two botched kicks from Alex Zendejas at the end of the fourth quarter and in overtime.

When, where and what time will the this year's rivalry game be played? We have that info for you after the jump.

The 2012 Duel In The Desert will be hosted in Tucson on Friday, November 23. That's the day after Thanksgiving, so get all of your shopping and a power nap done early in the day.

Kickoff for the game is set for 8 p.m. locally. ESPN will provide the broadcast, which is nice considering the new television deal for the Pac-12. Arizona opened as 5.5 point favorites last week, although that number is sure to change once the season gets rolling.

The key storyline to watch for in all of this is Rich Rodriguez vs. Todd Graham. The two have experience working with each other in the past, but you can bet these games will leave no love lost between the new head honchos in Tucson and Tempe.
