By the Numbers
Games, since Arizona won back-to-back football games prior to Saturday. Saturday's 28-22 triumph over Stanford and the 31-28 victory over San Diego State on Oct. 4 marked the first consecutive wins since the Wildcats defeated Washington State and Oregon State on Oct. 28 and Nov. 4 on the road during the 1995 season.
