TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — D.J. Foster ran for 124 yards and two touchdowns, and No. 13 Arizona State dismantled rival Arizona 58-21 Saturday night to earn home-field advantage in next week's Pac-12 championship game.

Arizona State (10-2, 8-1 Pac-12) won last year's game by scoring 24 points in the fourth quarter and raced out to a 27-point lead by the midpoint of the second this time.

Taylor Kelly threw for 274 yards and two touchdowns, De'Marieya Nelson ran for two scores and the Sun Devils had no trouble without leading rusher and scorer Marion Grice.

After scoring the most points in Territorial Cup history, Arizona State will host No. 8 Stanford in next Saturday's Pac-12 title game with a spot in the Rose Bowl on the line.

Arizona (7-5, 4-5) fell flat in trying to boost its bowl pedigree.
