Arizona State University
Clad in maroon and gold, Arizona State University fans are all about Sun Devil pride. A sense of pride includes a history of military service dating from the Spanish-American War to the late famed alum Pat Tillman, who left the NFL to enlist in the United States Army. Sun Devil pride results from 23 team NCAA national championships, and is on raucous display any time ASU takes on the Arizona Wildcats in the “Duel of the Desert” football rivalry.
