Arizona expects close games the rest of the way

TUCSON, Ariz. -- Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez has been a head coach for nearly 30 years and a coach at some level for most of his life. So there's no need to talk about last year's game against Washington State and all it meant. It was one that got away from the Wildcats. And one you don't get a chance to get back.

WATCH: Washington State Defensive Backs Get Knocked Silly After Running in to Each Other

More records in sight for Cougars' Connor Halliday

Connor Halliday broke another NCAA record, and he has more in sight. The Washington State quarterback threw for a Division I-record 734 yards in a 60-59 loss to California on Saturday. The feat elicited little more than a shrug from the fifth-year senior, who said ''it'll be fun to look back on it when I'm 30 years old.'' That reaction is no surprise when...
