All week, Star columnist Greg Hansen is counting down the five best Territorial Cup games of all time. Up next: No. 4.
Date: Nov. 27, 1982
Location: Arizona Stadium, Tucson
Score: Arizona 28, ASU 18
What went down: The No. 6 Sun Devils, 8-1-1, needed to beat 5-4-1 Arizona to go to the Rose Bowl. But the Wildcats burst to a 28-0 lead, keyed by two safeties from on-rushing lineman Joe Drake, in front of the largest crowd in UA history, 58,515. The win began “The Streak,” an 8-0-1 run of success against ASU.
