Cats look to duplicate last week's win with favored Tigers in town

As the Wildcats jump-started another hopeful season, the team still had some sketchy areas and with a loose quarterback slot, their leading rusher hurt with a shoulder injury and a bad preseason ranking, the last thing the team wanted to worry about was a lack of support from its fans.

Today, the No. 10 Wildcats (2-1, 0-0 Pacific 10 Conference) host the Aztecs (2-1) at 10 a.m., then face the No. 20 Broncos of Santa Clara (1-1) in their first home matches of the season in the Four Points University Plaza Wildcat Classic. [Read article]
