The Arizona Wildcats finish their 2014 season with a 10-3 record and after a 51-13 loss to the Oregon Ducks in the Pac-12 Championship game close the year 10th in the College Football Playoff.

Rich Rodriguez's team finished 11th in the AP Poll and 12th in the Coaches Poll, but the CFP committee keeping UA in the top-10 certainly is good news for the upcoming bowl announcements. The College Football Playoff committee ranked the football playoff group of four and has yet to announce the remaining teams in the top-25.

Arizona earned votes as high as seventh in the coaches poll and as low as 17 (Les Miles, Steve Spurrier and Bret Bielema, thethree coaches who voted the Wildcats 17th, were from the SEC).

The bowl selections will begin rolling out Sunday afternoon with Arizona hoping it can garner interest from the Fiesta Bowl.

If the Wildcats aren't selected to attend the Fiesta Bowl in Glendale, Ariz., then it's possible they could end up in the Cotton Bowl or Alamo Bowl. Greg Byrne said he didn't have an idea where Arizona would land but he wasn't pushing for any one over the other, via Twitter.
