The War for the Roses

Man. It’s really happening. The Arizona State Sun Devils (9-1) are in prime position for their first-ever Bowl Championship Series berth. All that stands in their way -- aside from the regular-season-concluding Territorial Cup -- is a match-up against the USC Trojans (8-2), arguably the most successful college football team of the past five years. Ugh.

However, the Devils have mucho in their favor. This Trojan team is not the same Matt Leinart/Reggie Bush-led powerhouse that ran circles around the dazed Devils in 2005, and this is the first game in ASU history to be played on Thanksgiving Day.

The game is officially sold out. Try
