The final Bear Down Friday is Nov. 23, 3-7 p.m., at Main Gate Square. The University of Arizona Wildcats host the Arizona State Sun Devils in the Territorial Cup football game on Saturday, Nov. 24. Bear Down Friday is a tradition that takes place one day before each home football game. Restaurants and stores in the area offer food specials, happy hour pricing, discounts, giveaways, and fun activities.
The pep rally stars the Pride of Arizona Marching Band, UA Poms, Twirlers and Flags, Wilbur and Wilma, and UA Cheer. Skip the parking hassles by riding the Sun Link streetcar, which goes right through Main Gate Square at University Boulevard between Euclid and Park avenues.
