Time for the Cardinals to head west to face the 49ers.

Also, with the Arizona Wildcats beating the Arizona State Sun Devils in the Territorial Cup rivalry game, this should probably be used as the gloating thread for the fans of the winning team. Lets keep this out of the Cardinals gamethread.

All I know is that as an ASU fan, I am mad as hell, and a bad game from the Cardinals will probably make me fly off the handle.

As a bonus, a video of Lee Corso forgetting that you can't curse on live TV

Cardinals, 49ers renew what has become heated rivalry

Arizona Cardinals ready for another battle against division foe San Francisco 49ers
Cardinals starting nose tackle Dan Williams played 10 or so more snaps of NFL football last week than you or I, and the extra rest might come in handy Sunday. The 49ers like to beat up opponents with the run, so Williams will play considerably more than he did last week against the Eagles, who used three or more receivers for most of the game. The Cardinals countered with nickel packages, which do not include a nose tackle. "When a team runs for a lot of yards, the first person you look at on the defense is the nose tackle," Williams said. "So you definitely get excited." If last week's game against the Eagles felt like flag football, Sunday's game at Candlestick Park likely will resemble an MMA fight.

Arizona Wildcats stun ASU to win Territorial Cup
ASU's late-season collapse continued Saturday night in a way that could cost coach Dennis Erickson his job. Arizona rallied from 10 points down in the fourth quarter to stun the Sun Devils 31-27 at Sun Devil Stadium. The Sun Devils, which have lost its last three, dropped to 6-5 and 4-4 in the Pac-12. They still have a chance to win the South and reach the inaugural Pac-12 championship, but they need help. First ASU needs to defeat California next week. Then they need USC to defeat UCLA and Utah to defeat Colorado.
