Stanford teaches Arizona how to win

The Arizona Wildcats fell to the Stanford Cardinal 54-48 despite holding a two-touchdown lead in the fourth quarter.


Gamethread: Chop them Trees

Arizona's game against the Stanford Cardinal could be the turning point for Rich Rodriguez's young program.


Terrence Miller could play against Cardinal

Arizona Wildcats receiver Terrence Miller led the team in pregame warmups, according to Ryan Finley. That's good news for Rich Rodriguez's offense, which could use such a unique threat in the receiving group next to Dan Buckner and Austin Hill.

While freshman David Richards caught 11 balls for 92 yards in relief of Miller, who missed the last two games with a shoulder and a leg injury, the 6-foot-4 receiver presents more than his 10 catches for 106 yards meet the eye. The senior adds size and experience to the offense, and it was apparent in his game-winning touchdown catch in overtime against Toledo.

On the more broad injury front, Finley reports that questionables Kyle Quinn, Trace Biskin and Jared Tevis didn't even travel with the team to Palo Alto, Calif. Dominique Austin was also ruled out of the game early this week and did not travel with the Wildcats.

Time, TV schedule, odds and injury updates for the Arizona Wildcats as they face the Stanford Cardinal on Saturday.


Injury report: Jared Tevis likely a no-go

Arizona Wildcats safety Jared Tevis' sprained ankle could make him a no-go on Saturday. If the reports out of Tucson regarding Tevis moving around on crutches and in a walking boot weren't enough, the replay of his ankle sprain from Saturday's 38-35 loss to the Oregon State Beavers might be telling.

But safety Patrick Onwuasor played well in Tevis' place, recording eight tackles. The redshirt freshman told the Arizona Daily Star that he was plenty comfortable on the field after replacing Tevis at the "bandit' safety spot.

The 6-foot-1, 210 pound converted receiver is a physical presence and a big hitter, and he told the Star that he'll continue to lean on Tevis for help, just as he did when the starting bandit finally left the game after returning for a series to test out the ankle.

Also listed as questionable for Saturday's noon game in Palo Alto, Calif., is offensive lineman Trace Biskin (toe), defensive lineman Reggie Gilbert (ankle) and center Kyle Quinn (ankle).

Starting defensive end Dominique Austin is the only player ruled completely out. He is dealing with a foot injury.

Kyle Quinn, Jared Tevis not ruled out

Arizona Wildcats center Kyle Quinn and bandit Jared Tevis weren't ruled out of Saturday's game against the Stanford Cardinal, but Rich Rodriguez gave little update as to how likely it was that they'd play.

The Arizona Daily Star reports that UA's coach remained quiet on each of the starters' statuses.

Tevis sprained his ankle when coming down from a defended pass in the first half. At first glance, it appeared the hybrid safety broke his ankle or leg, but he returned for a defensive series and could run on the injury. He struggled on cuts and in putting on the breaks.

Patrick Onwuasor, the freshman defensive back, took over at the bandit spot for Tevis.

Meanwhile, Quinn was lost in the second half with his own injured ankle. The starting center would be a huge loss not only because he's the leader of the offensive line, but also in that the injury moved inexperienced Addison Bachman to center. Bachman started the year against Toledo as a backup, but his role as greatly increased with the injuries to Quinn, Trace Biskin and Lene Maiava.
