UW's Pickett to Williams has become one of the top passing tandems in Pac-10 conference

When Arizona travels to Seattle Saturday, the defense will have to be on the lookout for more than just rain falling out of the sky.

Washington's quarterback-wide receiver combination of Cody Pickett and Reggie Williams has developed into one of the top tandems in the conference ÷÷ if not the nation ÷÷ and they will likely be the Wildcats' No. 1 priority this weekend if they want to remain in the game. [Read article]

There is no place like home, unless the Dawgs at home are waiting for you and looking to take off your head Ě again.

When Arizona travels to Washington on Saturday, senior quarterback Jason Johnson will be returning home for the second year in a row. The last one he probably doesn't want to remember and ¸ after the hit he took ¸ he might not.

On the second-to-last play of the first quarter in Arizona's 31-28 loss to Washington last year, Johnson was struck in the head by Washington safety Wondame Davis and suffered a concussion. He stayed in the game for two more plays, but was then replaced by back up John Rattay. [Read article]

Staff Picks

Arizona at No. 18 Washington

UA wideout Bobby Wade is on pace to finish the season with over 1,400 yards and 100 catches. The postseason committee can send the Belitnikoff Award to the engravers now, since this guy isn't slowing down anytime soon. Also, Jason Johnson is ticked off about U-Dub ruining his homecoming last year (concussion), and won't let it happen again. [Read article]

Pac-10 Football Notes

Arizona (3-2, 0-1)
Last week: Lost to Oregon 31-14
This week: No. 22 Washington

The injuries suffered to top-line players on the Wildcat's roster is incredible.

After a Saturday's loss to Oregon, it was revealed halfback Clarence Farmer would miss the rest of the season after having surgery to repair damaged cartilage in his knee. Farmer joins cornerback Michael Jolivette (MCL sprain) as All-Pac-10 performers that are likely done for the season. Furthermore, All-Pac-10 middle linebacker Lance Briggs, freshman cornerback Darrell Brooks and a host of other key players missed part or all of the game against the Ducks. While Briggs is expected to be back this weekend, the rest of the list, if not the rest of the roster, is questionable. [Read article]

photo Wildcat women keeping ╬secret'

UA players exhibit quiet confidence on media day

It was hard for the UA women's basketball team to stop from smiling when asked about the outlook for the upcoming season at media day yesterday.

"It's a secret," sophomore guard Dee-Dee Wheeler said.

But it's a secret that the team does not wish to keep from the rest of the nation when the season tips off in November.

Under the cover of last year's disappointing 14-14 season, Arizona has retooled with an impressive freshmen class, redshirt players and a solid core of upperclassmen. [Read article]

Why do fans have to wait?

Gentle Ben's won't have it. Don't count on Dirtbag's. Try O'Malley's or Old Chicago, but good luck finding any bar showing anything other than Oregon at UCLA.

Many students and football fans who want to watch Arizona face off against Washington in Seattle at 12:30 p.m. will be out of luck come game time on Saturday, since the game will not be shown until that same time on Sunday in the Tucson area, on Fox Sports Net Arizona. [Read article]
