The day after Thanksgiving marks tradition for many Americans,  but it's not the Black Friday shopping that caught college football fans eyes. Friday marked the begin of rivalry week.

There are some big match ups with playoff implications today but perhaps the greatest rivalry and one of the oldest was played last night.

Arizona State took it's 5-7 record on the road to Tucson to face in state rival and lowly 2-9 Arizona.  Anyone who has ever been any part of this game before knows records don't mean anything to these two teams.

The two teams first started playing each other back in 1899 before Arizona was even a state. That's how it got it's name.  Arizona leads the series 49-40-1.

ASU came in to the game needing the win to become bowl eligible,  while the Wildcats knew their season was over after the game.

Arizona dominated the game winning 56-35 in a shootout.  The Wildcats ran all over the Sun Devils, literally, with a  players rushing for more than 100 yards.  The game ended disappointing seasons for both teams.

Last nights game was exciting and proved why it's the best rivalry in college football.
