Splitting polygons

Returning to use of ArcMap after 5-year absence and I've forgotten a few things... I am using ArcView 10 and, unfortunately, under a tight deadline. Please help.

Layers: Layer 1 contains polygons of sales territories. Layer 2 contains polygons with population projections by MSA.

Problem: Sales territory boundaries sometimes cross (or divide) MSAs. Using the Geoprocessing tool, I can clip the MSA to adhere to the territory boundary, but the value in the population field remains unchanged.

I want the software to apportion the population projection for the split MSAs to the appropriate Sales Territory. Many moons and versions of ArcView ago I knew how to do this. Any help appreciated.
