photo Commentary: Arizona needs to take Saturday's lessons into second half of season

Will Rogers once said, "The trouble with using experience as your guide is that sometimes the final exam comes first, then the lesson."

Never has a quote more aptly applied to the Arizona football team, which Saturday suffered a 28-0 loss to No. 10 California.

Arizona head coach Mike Stoops' ongoing rebuilding process might appear to have hit a snag on the surface with three losses - two to Top-25 teams - and a road contest at two-time defending national champion and top-ranked Southern California less than a week away. [Read article]

    The No. 13 Arizona volleyball team recorded its third consecutive sweep Friday night by defeating Washington State in Pullman, Wash.

    But the Wildcats' tricks were turned against them the next evening, as they were swept by No. 2 Washington in Seattle.

    In the loss, Arizona (11-2, 3-1 Pacific 10 Conference) watched its seven-match win streak come to an end and fell for the first time this season in conference play. [Read article]

    No. 12 Cougars edge Cats in UA's last non-conference home game

    Defeating nationally ranked opponents seems to be the BYU soccer team's forte this season.

    The No. 12 Cougars' match against the No. 24 Arizona soccer team furthered that point, as BYU won 2-1 Saturday night at Murphey Stadium in the Wildcats' last non-conference home game of 2005.

    The Wildcats (5-3-2) are the fourth ranked team the Cougars have defeated since Sept. 12, and Saturday's victory kept BYU (10-0-1) undefeated, with their only tie coming Sept. 24 against Eastern Washington. [Read article]
