photo Football: Trouble Bruin on Family Weekend?

Season-high crowd expected for first conference home game

Arizona football will be hosting its second Pacific 10 Conference team of 2003 tomorrow at 3:30 p.m. when UCLA heads to Tucson to face an Arizona Stadium crowd that is expected to be unusually large.

Last week, the Bruins beat 18th-ranked Washington, 46-16 in Los Angeles. They head to Tucson this week 1-0 in the Pac-10 and 3-2 overall. [Read article]

The Pacific 10 Conference is the part of the schedule that Arizona (4-5-1) has been looking forward to all year. Now that it's here, the Wildcats believe they have some surprises up their sleeves, along with the urge to be successful in front of some of their families this weekend.

Arizona, which plays host to Stanford today at 7 p.m. and No. 21 California at 1 p.m. on Sunday, gets its first chance to make a Pac-10 impression. Arizona has never beaten either of these teams. [Read article]

The good news for the UA volleyball team is that its hardest stretch ever facing four consecutive top-10 teams is almost over.

The bad news: The toughest part comes this weekend.

Tonight, Arizona (6-9, 0-5 Pacific 10 Conference) hits Pauley Pavilion to face No. 8 UCLA (12-2, 4-1), then heads across town tomorrow to the Lyon Center to play No. 1 Southern California (14-0, 5-0). The Bruins, in Westwood, are the only team to win a game against the Women of Troy, winning the second game of the Los Angeles schools' first Pac-10 match. [Read article]

When Arizona played No. 12 Washington State last weekend, the Cougars were coming off a huge blowout win over a nationally ranked Oregon team.

For the second week in a row the Wildcats must face a team who put up an impressive performance against a top-20 team the week before.

UCLA (3-2, 1-0 Pacific 10 Conference) comes into Saturday's Family Weekend contest in Tucson after beating then-No. 18 Washington, 46-16 at the Rose Bowl last week. [Read article]

Soccer: Hamm it up now, while you still can

As Mia Hamm moves one step closer tomorrow to the close of her 16-year international soccer career, it seems only appropriate to look at the impact she has had on the soccer world and beyond.

To any female who played soccer or any sport, for that matter in any serious capacity, whether just starting out, as a player on the UA soccer team or a member of the national team, Hamm was the standard. You may be good real good but female soccer players will always be measured on the Mia scale. We strapped on our shin guards, pulled our ponytails tight, and visualized playing like Mia Hamm.

Arizona vs. UCLA

Even though the Wildcats' play this season has the NCAA pondering the installation of the mercy rule, the Bruins could be a welcome visitor to Tucson. UCLA is riding high, while Arizona has a new attitude. All the cards are in place for the upset. It doesn't happen, however, as Rodney Leislie delivers the knockout blow for the third straight week.
