State Farm Territorial Cup Series
|Arizona State (1)||Arizona (3)|
The State Farm Territorial Cup Series is the yearlong competition between the Arizona Wildcats and Arizona State Sun Devils. With the end of the 2011-2012 season, State Farm's sponsorship of the series concluded. The universities are currently seeking new sponsorship.
The series includes head to head competitions in 18 different sports. Though a 19th sport, Men's Indoor Track & Field, is counted by Arizona State and clarity to resolve the issue will be sought before the next sponsor for the series is selected. Beginning in the 2013-2014 or 2014-2015 school year, Women's Sand Volleyball will become a common varsity intercollegiate sport for both Arizona and ASU. Inclusion of Women's Sand Volleyball in the series is expected when a new sponsor is selected.
The name comes from the Territorial Cup, which is the trophy awarded to the winner of the annual football game between the two schools.
Points are awarded for all sports in which both schools maintain an intercollegiate team. Each sport is worth one point, which is awarded to the winner of the head-to-head match up between the two teams. If the head-to-head match up ends in a tie, each team receives ½ point. In baseball and softball, all games, both conference and non-conference, count as one point combined. In swimming and diving, cross country, golf, and track and field, whichever team finishes higher in the standings at the Pac-12 championship receives one point. In addition, games between the schools in Pac-12 tournament and NCAA tournament play will count towards the series as well. Should the two universities finish tied, the winner shall be decided by whichever school finishes higher in the Directors' Cup standings, and by the winner of the Territorial Cup Trophy in football that year. One university must accumulate at least 9½ points to win.
Point system disputed
ASU and UA are currently in dispute regarding the total points awarded in the Territorial Cup Series. The two schools now share Men's Indoor Track and Field as a common varsity intercollegiate sport. ASU's and UA's Men's Indoor Track and Field are NCAA recognized teams and accumulate points for the Directors' Cup standings. However, UA refuses to recognize the sport as part of the series and the schools are still negotiating the inclusion of Men's Indoor Track and Field before a new sponsor is selected.
ASU and Arizona are currently tied with 2½ points each in the 2013-2014 series.

2012-2013 Season synopsis
For the 2012-2013 season ASU finished 18th in the Directors' Cup standings, 5 spots higher than Arizona at 23rd. ASU also won the Territorial Cup Trophy for football. Due to ASU winning those tiebreakers, the Territorial Cup Series was won by ASU for the 2012-2013 season. The universities have not resolved the current point system dispute; nonetheless, the state's newspaper of record (The Arizona Republic) agrees with ASU's position that the series ended in a deadlock with ASU winning both tiebreakers. The reason behind this decision rests with the fact that Arizona began competing in Men's Indoor Track & Field and the points Arizona earns from its inclusion in the NCAA sport are used to calculate Directors' Cup standings.
