In Saturday night's 59-13 blowout loss to No. 13 Louisiana State, the Wildcats were left black and blue.

The Tigers supplied the black, while Arizona took care of the blue.

The UA wore its all-blue uniforms for just the second time in head coach John Mackovic's three years in Tucson, in front of a national television audience on TBS.

"LSU is a very good football team. We shouldn't take that for granted," Mackovic said. "Many people feel they are among the best in the SEC and maybe among the best in the country." [Read article]

Uh-oh.

That was just about the only thought that came to mind after the No. 13 Tigers of LSU drove 80 yards on their first possession ¸ scoring with 8:31 to go in the first quarter ¸ and was all that could sum up a game that most thought could jump-start Arizona's season if they were to knock off a powerhouse so early in their schedule.

The Arizona offense looked not just one step, but three steps behind throughout the game, overthrowing receivers at every opportunity, running incorrect routs, and only converting three first-downs to LSU's 19 in the first half. [Read article]

Soccer left winless in Missouri

The return trip home from Columbia, Mo., to Tucson probably seemed a lot longer than the flight to the Nike-Tiger Invitational.

Arizona (1-3-0) was put down, 3-1, by host Missouri and held off by Arkansas, 3-2, on Friday.

Despite out-shooting the opposition 26-17, the Wildcats were unable to pull out a victory in either match, as they never held a lead in the tournament.

Junior defender Lindsey Peeples was the only Arizona player named to the All-Tournament team. [Read article]

Cross Country sweeps at Irvine

The Arizona men and women's cross country teams swept the team titles at the UC Irvine/J.L Design Enterprises Invitational at Central Park in Huntington Beach, Calif., on Saturday. The Arizona men captured the title with 47 points, while the Wildcat women won with 45 points. Both squads were able to place the five scoring runners in the top 16.

In its first action of the fall campaign, the UA men were led by senior Kyle Goklish's second-place finish. Goklish covered the 8,000-meter course in a time of 25:07.3. [Read article]
