Multiple turnovers cost Wildcats shot at first conference win

Turnovers were the Arizona football team's undoing Saturday against Pacific 10 Conference foe Stanford, as the Wildcats lost 20-16 before a Family Weekend crowd of 54,216 at Arizona Stadium.

In its first home conference game of 2005, Arizona (1-5, 0-3 Pac-10) committed five turnovers, three of which led to Cardinal scores.

"We killed ourselves," said senior tailback Mike Bell. "I know of a couple times myself I was dropping the ball and just being careless." [Read article]

Adams-Williams matchup steals show

McKale Madness was a fun and enjoyable event for Arizona men's basketball fans and players alike, so one could expect the 20-minute scrimmage that ended the night to be fun and relaxed as well.

Apparently the guys on the team didn't get the memo.

Once the competitive juices began flowing, the game turned into what looked for all the world like a fierce midseason battle, and no two players seemed to push harder than senior forward Hassan Adams and freshman forward Marcus Williams. [Read article]

Miscues keep Wildcats winless in conference

The Arizona football team beat Stanford in nearly every statistical category Saturday night.

Total yards, 271-195. First downs, 17-11. Time of possession and third-down conversions? Advantage Cats.
