The Arizona Wildcats football program first fielded a team in 1899 with the nickname Arizona Varsity. The team picked up the Wildcats moniker in 1914. Most football fans remember the success of the Wildcats program best in the 1990's under head coach Dick Tomey and his tough and powerful “Desert Swarm” defense. Who can forget the 29-0 slaughter of the favored Miami Hurricanes in the Fiesta Bowl in 1993, or in 1998 when the Wildcats ended the season with a 12-1 record and a #3 national ranking?

2018 Arizona Wildcats Season Preview
Bear-down! One of the better chants in college football, and when Zona is on, it’s danger for the rest of the Pac-12. Only problem, not since Tedy Bruschi and Desert Swarm has this university had a real contender. Last year disappointed in a lot of ways for Arizona. Most notably, going 3-9. If the Wildcats are going to win 4,5,6 or dare we say it, 7 games, QB Brandon Dawkins will need to get them to that promise land. Running back J.J. Taylor is a stud, who at just 5-6 and 170 pounds ran like someone twice his size until injuries derailed him. Receiver Shun Brown is the lone bright spot on catching duty, so unless Taylor can push the rock and Dawkins direct the offense, the Wildcats might find themselves sniffing the 2,3 or 4-win range. Yikes. Whether you are planning on cheering on Arizona at Arizona Stadium or supporting the Wildcats on the road, TicketCity has some of the best deals for all 2017 Arizona Wildcats tickets, including home and away games.

Known as the “Dual in the Dessert,” this is one of the fiercest rivalries in the Southwest. The winner of the game is awarded the “Territorial Cup” which is the oldest trophy given in a rivalry game. The Wildcats own an advantage in the series, but the last two decades have been gridlocked with the “Territorial Cup” exchanging hands almost every year. Easily the biggest game in Arizona, this is a can’t miss for fans in the Grand Canyon State.

2015 Arizona Football Preview
The Arizona Wildcats have been an offensive juggernaut under head coach Rich Rodriguez. The Wildcats maybe had their best season in years in 2014, winning a difficult PAC-12 South division, and being the only PAC-12 school to knock off the Oregon Ducks. The Wildcats have much reason to be optimistic about their PAC-12 chances in 2015, as they return their two most dynamic offensive weapons in quarterback Anu Solomon, and running back Nick Wilson. Throw in talented receiver Cayleb Jones, and the 2015 Arizona Wildcats offense will likely be one of the top units in the country. Where Arizona has the biggest unknowns coming into 2015 will be on the defensive side of the ball. Four sophomores are slated to start for the Wildcats, and will have to fill in for what was a PAC-12 leading unit a season ago. Top games on the Arizona Wildcats 2015 schedule are in Tucson against UCLA, and Utah, and on the road at Stanford, USC, and Arizona State.
2014 Arizona Football Preview
The Wildcats had some extremely high, and very low moments in 2013. This was no more evident than the 2 week span where the Cats lost at home to Washington State, then stomped the Oregon Ducks a week later. Head coach Rich Rodriguez hopes that the later Arizona team is more evident in 2014. The Wildcats lost offensive juggernaut Ka’Deem Carey who rushed for over 1,900 in 2013, to the NFL draft. Other key departures from 2013 include Marquis Flowers, Shaquille Richardson, Jake Fischer, and Jesse Scroggins. Despite all of these losses, the outlook for 2014 is good in Tucson, due to an abundance of young talent. Redshirt freshman Anu Soloman will be given the keys to Rodriguez’s explosive offense and looks to feed Terris Jones-Grigsby and Cayleb Jones as many touches as possible. The race for the Pac-12 title has been getting tighter and tighter in recent years and coming into 2014 there are a number of teams with legitimate shots to take home the crown. Key games for the Wildcats chances of a Pac-12 Championship will be October 2 at Oregon, October 11 against USC, and the season finale against Arizona State in Tucson.
2013 Arizona Football Preview
In his first season as the head coach of the Arizona Wildcats, Rich Rodriguez improved the win total by 4 games. His second year comes with higher expectations, but the former West Virginia and Michigan head coach is up for the challenge. The defense should be improved from 2012 with the return of many starters from last year’s squad. However, Rodriguez is known for his offense and the Wildcats finished 7th in total yards per game in his first season. Arizona will need to replace quarterback Matt Scott after Scott threw for over 3,600 yards. Along with quarterback, Rodriguez will need to find a replacement for his two top receivers. Dan Buckner graduated and junior Austin Hill tore his ACL in April. The good news is All-American running back Ka’Deem Carey returns. Carey led the nation as a sophomore by rushing for 1,929 yards and 23 touchdowns. Carey was also a factor in the passing game by hauling in 36 balls. Arizona will look to improve on their 8-win total with home games against UCLA, Washington State, and Oregon.
2011 Arizona Football Preview
At the beginning of the 2010 season, Mike Stoops’ Wilcat club looked like it was going to be as hot as the desert air that surrounds the Arizona campus. A win over a top-ranked Iowa team vaulted them into the top-10, and talk of the then Pac-10. But then, as most teams did regardless of conference, they ran into the mighty Cardinal. Arizona’s loss to Stanford left them in a rest-of-season rut that left them losing its last four regular season games and an invite to the Alamo Bowl.
With its realigned conference, Arizona now finds itself in the Pac-12 South, along with in-state rivals Arizona State, UCLA, USC and both new conference entries, Utah and Colorado. Unlike their South foes, however, the Cats might have an upper hand in that their quarterback position is set with Nick Foles, who only trailed Stanford’s Andrew Luck in total offense. However he’s now missing his entire offensive line thanks to draft and graduation, so how quickly the offense jells will be the deciding factor on how well they do on that side of the ball.
Defensively, the Cats are facing the same situation the O-Line is going through. After losing four starters to the NFL draft, seniors Mohammed Usman and C.J. Parish will have to fill the defensive ends slots along with freshmen Rob Hankins and Domonique Petties, who will see time as linebackers thanks to a depleted roster—a lot of time.
2010 Arizona Football Preview
After struggling for the better part of a decade, the Arizona Wildcats football program has put together back-to-back eight-win seasons and earned two straight bowl berths. As the team looks to improve upon its second-place finish in the Pac-10 last year, it will employ a completely new offensive strategy to push in front of Oregon, last year's conference champion.
After six years with a single offensive coordinator and QB coach, the Wildcats are now staffed by two co-offensive coordinators in line coach Bill Bedenbaugh and RB/TE coach Seth Littrell, and new quarterback coach Frank Scelfo. Scelfo will be looking for Arizona's junior QBs, Matt Scott and Nick Foles, to push each other as they compete for the starting job. Last season, Scott started the year, before Foles threw for 2,486 yards and 19 touchdowns by the end of the season.
Whoever wins the starting job will be treated to the protection offered by the Wildcats' center Colin Baxter, who enters the season an all-conference candidate. Foles, known as more of a pocket quarterback, may be the best bet with the cushion provided by Baxter and the Arizona offensive line.
The Wildcats open their season on September 3rd against Toledo, and play their first home game on September 11 against Citadel.
2009 Arizona Football Preview
2009 should be a big year for the Arizona Wildcats football program. Cats Head Coach Mike Stoops has been in Tucson for 5 seasons and has yet to light the world on fire. That makes the upcoming season an important one for the Wildcats & Stoops, so that motivation could be the catalyst to a fantastic 2009. Fielding a talented team has never been a problem in Arizona, because Stoops is a masterful recruiter. The Wildcats must now focus on getting their defense playing lights out and continuing to bring their offense along. If that happens, then expect the Arizona Wildcats to play spoilers in the Pac 10 and be a dark horse team to get into a BCS bowl.
2008 Arizona Football Preview
The Arizona Wildcats football program is always one of the toughest in the country and one of the great competitors in the Pacific 10 (PAC-10) Conference each season. Coming off a tough year in 2007, look for the Wildcats to make a big splash in the coming season. A game at Arizona Stadium in Tucson, Arizona this coming year will be an exciting experience for Wildcats and PAC-10 fans as Arizona tries to play for a conference title and a bowl game.
