With the rivalry game against Arizona taking place on Saturday, Arizona State students gathered for the largest Camp Fargo event in the school's history

Arizona State students break camping record

It doesn’t take a genius to tell you that Arizona State vs. Arizona is a huge game for students and fans within the state. The battle for the Territorial Cup has grown year over year, and the 2015 installment of the game is shaping up to be the biggest yet.

And to get prepared for Saturday’s game, the annual “Camp Fargo” on the campus of Arizona State was the biggest in the school’s history.

With 364 campsites set up this year, the annual student event shattered the old record of 250 sites that was set last season before the school played Notre Dame.

For those unfamiliar, Camp Fargo is where students set up tents around the Wells Fargo Arena on the campus. The camp usually wraps around the arena at least once, but this year’s camp out saw it wrap around the building an astounding three times. For a game between two unranked teams to garner this much attention from the fans shows just how much the rivalry between the two schools is really growing.

It’s also a big game for the Sun Devils as they look to make it to bowl eligibility, entering play with a 5-5 record on the season. Arizona, on the other hand, is already bowl eligible at 6-5, and is looking to improve their stock as the season winds down.
