UA sports fans can rejoice this weekend as there is plenty of action in all sorts of sports to satisfy any need. Football looks to end its struggles by taking out its frustrations on the USC Trojans Saturday at 12:30 p.m. Tickets are still available, and the game is being broadcasted on ABC. Baseball kicks off with some more fall ball tonight and tomorrow afternoon with inter-squad scrimmages. Show up and watch the games with pro scouts trying to get a read on the UA future baseball stars. The baseball games are tonight at 6 p.m. and tomorrow at 12 p.m. Baseball can provide an alternative to those not wishing to attend the football game taking place next door. All baseball games take place at the Frank Sancet field just to the east of Arizona Stadium. Volleyball takes on the Washington State Cougars tonight at 7 p.m. in the McKale Center. Tickets are still available, with students getting into both the baseball and volleyball games for free with a student I.D. card. Call the McKale ticket office at 621-2287 if you would like to pick up tickets in advance.

Feel like walking off some of that excess weight gained partying Friday night? There is no better opportunity than to join in the Dick Tomey Pony Express taking place Saturday morning from 7:30 a.m. and lasting until 11 a.m. Proceeds will go to charity, and even if you don't participate, someone you know will show up just to cheer them on. This special race costs $15, and you can pit your skills against fellow would-be athletes in a 2-mile walk/run for fun, wheelchair race or the 5K open race. These races are open to everyone, so swing by before 7:30 a.m. and make sure you can get a slot to participate. All participants get a free T-shirt, and the race takes place on the UA Mall. Prizes will be rewarded on various levels. Call Janet Olson at 626-4636 if you need any further details.
