Tomorrow is Lute Olson's birthday, and some big names turned out to watch the Wildcats on the gridiron entertain. They did.

It was also a solid outing for Austin Hill. You know, the guy who did something similar by helping Arizona win in a crazy comeback in the 2013 New Mexico Bowl. But this time, Hill became part of history. The 22-point deficit Arizona overcame was the biggest comeback in school history.

Anu Solomon got a late night helmet sticker from Lou! It makes sense. He scored four touchdowns in the fourth -- UA scored 36 points in the final 15 minutes. The guy not only threw a perfect pass to the corner of the end zone to win the game but set a school record with 73 pass attempts, 47 completions and 520 pass yards. Oh, and on a bad night for the running backs -- credit Cal there -- Solomon led the Wildcats with 46 rush yards.

Tra'Mayne Bondurant had his first significant role of the year after working his way out of the dog house. A low pass was flipped into the air by a Cal receiver and right into Bondurant's lap in the fourth -- a 24-yard return led to a score from 17 yards out, and it kept Arizona in the game.
Shouts to Solomon Hill, who also had a good night by transitive property. Or something.
Wonder if @kingxsolo enjoyed that final play. Solomon (to) Hill.— Daniel Berk (@DSBerk) September 21, 2014
Those who stayed. Not to be an grumpy Gus, but Arizona tends to rush the field for too many things. I'm still stung by attending the great premature rush against Oregon. But at least these people stayed for the entire game?
Wait, favorite stat of tonight: #BearDown trending with WAFFLE HOUSE and Calvin Harris https://t.co/5lqqZ5nQGz pic.twitter.com/gOSaTA3vDj— AZ Desert Swarm (@azdesertswarm) September 21, 2014
