Duel in the Desert: Can ASU stop the "X" factor, Wildcat QB Khalil Tate?

The Territorial Cup kicks off Saturday, Nov. 25 at 2:30. How will ASU contain Wildcat QB Khalil Tate?

TEMPE, Ariz. - The "Duel in the Desert," the anticipated Territorial Cup is less than 24 hours away.

And if we've learned anything in this rivalry, it's that anything can happen. This year, Khalil Tate happened.

"We need to contain him and not let him get outside of the tackles," senior linebacker Christian Sam said.

The sophomore University of Arizona quarterback averages almost 300 total yards a game. The real kicker? He wasn't the starter this season.

"He does a good job extending plays and throws the ball downfield extremely well," head coach Todd Graham said.

The game plan to stop Tate is simple.

"Just got to tackle him," senior linebacker DJ Calhoun said.
