State Farm Territorial Cup Rivalry Series Competition Rules and Scoring

ASU and UA sports teams will compete against one another in 18 common varsity intercollegiate sports. For a school to be the winner of the State Farm Territorial Cup Series Trophy, they must accumulate 9.5 points.

- Each sport will be worth one (1) point.
- The point is awarded to the team that wins a season series.
  • If the teams play once in a given season (football) then that game counts as one point.
  • For baseball and softball, all regular season games count towards season series tally,
  • including the non-conference games.
  • For swimming and diving, cross country, golf, and track and field only, one point is awarded to whichever team finishes higher in the Pac-10 Championship. (for these sports no other postseason competitions will count towards the series)
- If teams split the regular season match-ups, then each team receives a 1/2 point for that sport.
  • Pac-10 and NCAA Tournament games can count toward determining season series winner. (i.e. basketball splits regular season meetings and then plays in the Pac-10 Tournament, whichever school wins 2 of 3 games is awarded the point).
- In the event of a tie the following tie-breakers will be used:
1. University with higher finish in the Director's Cup Standings
2. Winner of the Territorial Cup football game
