Cable Sports Networks Think There's Only One College Football Team in Arizona

Posted By on Fri, Sep 13, 2013 at 9:00 AM

And it ain't good ol' Girls Gone Wild University and Casino, our good friends to the north.

Twice in the past week, when meaning to reference Arizona State, either the Pac-12 Network (really, boys?!?!?) and ESPN has instead written or shown Arizona on screen.

The first instance was rather innocuous, something I happened to catch when I took a moment to watch some of ASU's game last Thursday against Sacramento State (and made sure to capture for posterity, thanks to my handy-dandy Droid 4 cell phone camera):

Eh, not that big of a deal. Someone just left off the (oh so important) St. Call it a typo.

Using the wrong helmet on your college football show's set, and having it pop up on screen several times, that's a different story. Seems ESPN thinks Arizona is hosting Wisconsin this weekend, not UTSA. Even though ESPN has already started setting up its camera crew at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, somehow the Worldwide Leader of Sports thinks the game will feature the Wildcats instead of the Sun Devils.

Not sure how ASU's students are taking the news, but the UA student fan base is none too pleased:
