If there's one thing that can always unite ASU and UA fans, it's networks that confuse the two schools on national television.

Whether that was the case Saturday night, or whether FOX simply decided to get cheeky, it was probably unwise for the network to label the Sun Devils' defense as "Desert Swarm" during its game at UCLA.

That term, as most ASU and UA fans know, originated in Tucson with the Wildcats' dominant defensive unit in anchored by Tedy Bruschi in the early-mid 90s.

Many fans, Sun Devils and Wildcats alike, called out FOX for the faux pas.
