Defensive battle ends in Arizona's favor

Wildcat defense delivers in 17-3 victory over San Diego State

In what would prove to be a defensive battle, the Arizona football team pulled out a 17-3 victory over non-conference opponent San Diego State Saturday night.

The Wildcat defense shone throughout the game, holding the Aztecs to just 196 yards of total offense.

"They had an outstanding defense," SDSU head coach Ted Tollner said. "We knew it would be tough to get yards."

Sophomore linebacker Lance Briggs and the University of Arizona defense shut down the SDSU running attack, holding their top running back Larry Ned to just 85 yards on 29 carries.
