When all is said and done for Arizona this season, this might not be considered a particularly great team -- we will know more in a month or so -- but at least this far, it's a team having a pretty good year.
The Wildcats, in the second year of the Rich Rodriguez era, once again became bowl eligible Saturday with a hard-fought 33-28 win over California in Berkeley, Calif., giving them back-to-back Pac-12 road victories.
"It gives us a chance," said Rodriguez, whose team moved to 6-2 overall and 3-2 in the Pac-12, a game back of Arizona State in the Pac-12 South. "Like I told the team, it (wasn't) pretty, but we're not going to worry about being pretty. We want to be resilient.
"I'm proud of the seniors because they can play one more game (a bowl). But they'd like to play two," he said, referring to the Pac-12 championship game. "Who knows what will happen? We have a huge challenge in front of us."
