What you need to know before you go to the Territorial Cup

There's plenty of hate to go around in the Territorial Cup, the state of Arizona's biggest football game each year.

This season, the stakes aren't as high as they were back in 2014, when the game decided the champion of the Pac-12 South, but ASU and U of A will be amped up for the 2017 edition of the rivalry game.

For Sun Devil and Wildcat fans, it's easy to get distracted by the hype for the game and forget the little things. You don't want to show up to Sun Devil Stadium after kickoff.

Here are a few tips to make sure you have the best experience possible.

First of all, the game's sold out to the general public and the South Inferno of the student section is also sold out.

Some North Inferno seats will be sold to the public because of Thanksgiving weekend. They'll run you $40 and they'll be on sale at the ticket office Friday from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. and beginning at 10 a.m. Saturday. You can also call 480-727-0000 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Friday or after 10 a.m. Saturday to buy them.

For those tailgating, passholder parking lots open at 9:30 a.m. ahead of the 2:30 p.m. kickoff. Pay parking lots open at 11 a.m. and the gates to Sun Devil Stadium open at 1 p.m.

Several roads will be closed in the area on Saturday -- head to the City of Tempe's website to see the restrictions.

If you want to avoid that problem altogether, you can take the light rail to the game for $2 each way. Here's Valley Metro's trip planner so you can figure out what time you need to hop on the train.

For information about what you can and cannot bring into Sun Devil Stadium, go to ASU athletics' website.
