photo Football: Cats still itching for first Pac-10 win

Senior center Fraser leads UA against Ducks

Perhaps the only encouragement for the Arizona football team last weekend in its 37-17 loss to UCLA came from the combined efforts of running backs Mike Bell, Gilbert Harris and Chris Henry. The trio rushed for 258 yards and were the only reasons why the Wildcats matched the Bruins on the scoreboard in the second half.

This, after a career performance from Bruins quarterback Drew Olson (17-25, 235 yards, 4 touchdowns), amid nine first-half penalties and a 20-point halftime deficit for the Wildcats. [Read article]

Opponent Analysis: Oregon offense looking for hey-'Day' vs. UA

The good news for the Arizona football team is they don't have to face UCLA junior tight end Marcedes Lewis this week. Lewis had a career day against the Wildcats last week, with six catches for 99 yards and the three touchdowns.

The bad news: Arizona faces an equally impressive tight end Saturday when it travels to Oregon to play the Ducks at 12:30 p.m. in Autzen Stadium.

OU junior tight end Tim Day leads the Ducks in touchdowns, with four, and yards per catch, averaging 14.9 per reception this season. [Read article]

Basketball: Wildcats to retire Bibby's jersey

The Arizona athletics department announced yesterday its intention to retire the jersey of former Arizona basketball player and NBA star Mike Bibby Nov. 11 before an exhibition game against Sonoma State in McKale Center.

Bibby spent an eventful two seasons in Arizona, leading the Wildcats to the 1997 NCAA championship, and winning the national Freshman of the Year Award. In his career, Bibby was a consensus All-American, a Pacific 10 Conference Player of the Year, and a member of the All-Final Four team in 1997. He still ranks in the top 10 in five UA basketball statistical categories. [Read article]

Pair of Bay Area battles on tap for No. 24 soccer

The No. 24 Arizona soccer team takes its 2-0-conference start to the Bay Area this weekend to face No. 10 Stanford today and No.14 California on Sunday.

"Certainly Stanford's and Cal's programs are good this year, but they are programs with winning traditions," head coach Dan Tobias said. "It's a big challenge for us on the road."

In the 18 previous Pacific 10 Conference matchups with Cal (7-2-2 overall, 0-0-1, Pac-10) and Stanford (8-2-2 overall, 0-0-1), the Wildcats (11-2-0 overall, 2-0-0) have never won or tied, losing nine games to each team. This will be the first time, however, the Wildcats have come into the games ranked. It's also the first time they are coming in as tied for first place in the conference. [Read article]

Selwyn is currently a host of "Extreme Dodgeball" on Game Show Network and has a band called Zachariah and the Lobos Riders.

Wildcat: What's the best thing about Midnight Madness?
