Although the Arizona football team opens its Pacific 10 Conference season against No. 12 California tomorrow, it might as well be the Wildcats' rushing game against that of the Golden Bears.

Arizona head coach Mike Stoops said the Wildcats' ability to move the ball on the ground and their success stopping Cal's backs will be the keys to tomorrow's 4 p.m. contest at Memorial Stadium in Berkeley, Calif. [Read article]

After a painful, difficult week for Arizona athletics, members of the No. 24 Wildcat soccer team gather themselves to take the field against No. 12 BYU tomorrow at 7 p.m. at Murphey Stadium, in their last game before Pacific 10 Conference play begins.

V-ball to face Pac-10 champs Huskies

The No. 13 Arizona volleyball team takes its undefeated conference record on the road, as the Wildcats take on Washington State tonight at 7 in Pullman, Wash.

Action continues tomorrow when Arizona plays No. 2 Washington at 7 p.m. in Seattle.

It's not often a team loses its star running back to the NFL and actually improves its ground game the next season.

Such is the case for head coach Jeff Tedford's No. 12 California Golden Bears.

In its first four games of 2005, Cal (4-0) has averaged a Pacific 10 Conference-best 275.3 rushing yards per game - the sixth highest total in the nation - despite losing 2004 All-American J.J. Arrington to the Arizona Cardinals in April. [Read article]

Walk-on now top player

In 2002, Erick Levitre came to Tucson from northern California as a walk-on under then-football head coach John Mackovic.

The 6-foot-1, 265-pound offensive lineman spent his first season on the sidelines for a team with little expectations.

Oh, how times have changed.

Now the Wildcats' starting center, Levitre heads into his fourth game of 2005 as an important cog for a team with postseason aspirations and has earned the praises of the Arizona coaching staff. [Read article]
