Arizona State University: ‘Jerry Maguire’

Located in Tempe, Arizona State University (ASU) was where Cuba Gooding Jr.’s character, Rod Tidwell, played college football before embarking on a career in the NFL. “Jerry Maguire” stars Tom Cruise as a disenchanted sports agent who writes a mission statement that ruins his career. Forced to become an independent agent, Gooding, whose Tidwell plays for the Arizona Cardinals, becomes Maguire’s one and only client.

ASU’s Sun Devil Stadium served as a major filming location in the movie; in fact, Tidwell’s injury in the final game and the hallway scene outside of the locker room were both filmed at the stadium.
