U of A takes Stanford 28-22

For the first time this season the Arizona football team avoided its characteristic first-quarter woes and woke up to the challenge of playing a complete college football game. The Wildcats used a strong defensive effort and four touchdown passes from quarterback Ortege Jenkins to pull off a 28-22 upset win over the 16th-ranked Stanford Cardinal at Arizona Stadium Saturday night in front of the 40,273 that were in attendance. The win was the first over a ranked opponent for the Wildcats in 10 tries. "We knew this was a do or die game that we had to have," said linebacker Marcus Bell who led the team with 11 tackles. "We were ready to play and we did what we had to do to win."
