After eight months of offseason speculation, a predicted tenth-place conference finish and three weeks of pre-season preparation, it was another number that the Arizona football team used Friday night to silence its critics four.

The No. 10 Wildcats (2-1, 0-0) felt both the low of a season-opening loss to unranked Notre Dame on Friday, and the high of beating No. 5 Pepperdine in the Sheraton Four Points Pepperdine Classic over the weekend. Arizona had a .100 hitting percentage and committed 34 hitting errors during Friday's match. [Read article]
