The loss was Arizona’s first of the season, but it killed any chance they had at making the 4-team playoff. After the game, Arizona...

ASU accepts Ka’Deem Carey’s All-American award

I admit I have made the mistake of saying the Arizona Wildcats play in Tempe, Arizona before and I heard plenty of it from the fans of the Wildcats. I imagine any confusion between Arizona and Arizona State is a sensitive subject for some, and understandably so. I try to double check anytime I write or talk about either to make sure I haven’t slipped. And if I were to ever mail...

Wildcats receivers look for bounce-back game

TUCSON, Ariz. -- The second most perplexed person in the Rose Bowl on Saturday -- behind Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez -- may have been Tony Dews. Who would argue? His group of wide receivers -- considered by many to be the best in the west as a collective group -- dropped anywhere from seven to 10 passes against UCLA in a game the Wildcats played close enough to win. What's the...

Arizona's undersized Zellers coming up big at nose guard

TUCSON, Ariz. -- Scooby Wright remembers one of his first days at camp last year when Arizona Wildcats defensive coordinator Jeff Casteel pointed to a player and said, "We need guys like this in our program if we want to be good." He wasn't pointing to a senior. Or a returning starter. Casteel was pointing to a walk-on true freshman, Parker Zellers. Zellers, undersized, under-recruited...

Arizona's Ashley ready for next step on comeback trail

TUCSON, Ariz. -- There was never a doubt in Brandon Ashley's mind or heart that the 2014-15 basketbal season would come for him. It would just take time and patience -- and he had plenty of each.

Vine: Arizona Ran A Fake Field Goal, Kicker Casey Skowron Scored A Touchdown
