photo Cats' 9 lives not enough in loss to Ducks: Arizona 21 - No. 14 Oregon 28

Tuitama takes over, but Wildcats stumble in comeback bid

Like the old saying goes, the more things change, the more things stay the same.

The Arizona football team debuted freshman quarterback Willie Tuitama but still hurt itself with turnovers and mistakes in Saturday's 28-21 loss to No. 14 Oregon at Arizona Stadium.

"It's just how it is," said Arizona head coach Mike Stoops. "We just don't do all the little things right all the time. Learning how to win, for guys who've never won, it's extraordinarily hard for them to do." [Read article]

'Awesome win' snaps 10-day winless skid

The Arizona soccer team returned to the win column for the first time in more than a week yesterday, defeating No. 21 Stanford 2-1 at Murphey Stadium.

When it comes to USC, records and rankings can be thrown right out the window when determining if the Arizona volleyball team should have the advantage.

A week after bringing down then-No. 3 Stanford in five games to snap a five-match losing streak to the Cardinal, the No. 8 Wildcats were unable to turn the trick against No. 19 Southern California.

The Wildcats (15-3, 7-2 Pacific 10 Conference) fell 28-30, 30-27, 28-30, 23-30 in Los Angeles on Saturday for their seventh consecutive loss to USC (10-7, 6-3). The loss halted Arizona's four-match win streak. [Read article]

Ruggers mess with Texas

Club rugby thumps Texas, Baylor during opening weekend

The Arizona men's club rugby team ran roughshod in its opening weekend of the 2005-06 season, defeating Texas and Baylor by a combined score of 81-31.

photo Game analysis: Freshman QB Tuitama a diamond in rough loss

In a scene that has become all too familiar for the Arizona football team this season, Wildcat players and coaches walked off the Arizona Stadium field Saturday with looks of dejection after another close loss.

Some Wildcat fans had a different view. Following Arizona's 28-21 defeat by No. 14 Oregon, hundreds of spectators near the Arizona locker room repeatedly shouted the same thing.

"Great game, Willie!" [Read article]
