Wildcats' defense trending in right direction

TUCSON, Ariz. -- Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez inherited quarterback Matt Scott, running back Ka'Deem Carey and receiver Austin Hill when he arrived, a trio of nice parting gifts from Mike Stoops.

Foles fitting right into Eagles' offensive scheme

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Nick Foles is no stranger to losing quarterback competitions, then playing his way into the starters role. After he transferred to the University of Arizona from Michigan State in 2008 (he redshirted that season), Foles was embroiled in a close battle with Matt Scott for the starting job in 2009.
