Wiz correspondent Greg Laughlin started his weekend in Tucson, where Arizona was playing host to Arizona State in the Territorial Cup game. The Wildcats' 42-35 victory proved to be huge. Combined with Stanford's defeat of UCLA, the outcomes gave Arizona the Pacific 12 South title. The Wildcats will play North Division champion Oregon in Friday's Pac-12 title game at Santa Clara.
Can you think of a bigger game in the history of Texas San Antonio football? Of course not. Thursday night's matchup with Arizona in the Alamodome was played in front of a national TV audience. Among the 33,472 in attendance was Wiz correspondent Greg Laughlin, who watched the Wildcats hang on for a 26-23 victory.
What more could you ask for? The union between Arizona and Rich Rodriguez has been beneficial for all sides. The Wildcats had leveled out under Mike Stoops and along came Rodriguez, who reignited interest in the program and resurrected his career. Back-to-back eight-win seasons have Arizona thinking bigger and better things. Don't be surprised if the team is 4-0 entering an Oct. 2 matchup at Oregon.
When there's nothing else to sell, there's always hope. We've combed through YouTube to find the best 34 season ticket videos. It's broken into three posts because if we put them all in one, it would take forever to load.
Teams featured in part 1: Kentucky, South Carolina, Northwestern, Missouri, Arizona, North Carolina State, Idaho, East Carolina, Louisiana Tech, Temple, Kansas State and New Mexico State.
A lot of people lost faith in Rich Rodriguez after his failed tenure at Michigan. But Ann Arbor's loss was turned into Tucson's gain.
Rodriguez won eight games in his first season as Arizona coach. With a defense that returns 10 starters and a nonconference schedule that should make for a 3-0 start, a return to the postseason looks like a sure thing.
Take note that the poster is die-cut in the shape of the state.
