Cats’ ground game tramples Bruins

Senior running back Mike Bell’s flip into the end zone in the third quarter Saturday at Arizona Stadium seemed to epitomize the struggle the Arizona football team had finally overcome: With a defender between the Wildcats and their goal, they finally got over the hump.

Bell rushed for 153 yards on 16 carries, including the touchdown, and fellow senior Gilbert Harris had a career-high 113 yards and a score, as Arizona rolled to a 52-14 upset of No. 14 UCLA in front of 55,775 fans. [Read article]

Arizona began the night by winning the opening coin toss, deferring possession to UCLA and proceeded to win everything thereafter.

“We were most prepared for this game, more than any other game,” said senior running back Mike Bell. [Read article]
