Northern Arizona visits Tucson to battle 5-1 Cats

The UA soccer team will look to keep its perfect record against NAU intact in the Wildcats' third home game of the season, tonight at 7 at Murphy Stadium.

"It will be a good game. It's an in-state rivalry, and that always brings more to the game than anything else," said UA junior midfielder Jennifer Klein. "In any in-state rivalry, you want to be the 'in-state champions.'" [Read article]

photo Cats pack heat against Wisconsin

If the Arizona football team (1-1) wants any shot at defeating No. 17 Wisconsin (2-0) tomorrow afternoon, it's going to have to turn up the heat.

Luckily for the Wildcats, that shouldn't be much of a problem, in the literal sense.

Arizona will host its first September day game in 13 seasons when the Badgers visit Arizona Stadium for a 1 p.m. kickoff to be televised nationally on FSN. Temperature at game time is expected to be in the mid-to-high 90s. [Read article]
