Sonoran Hot Reads: Arizona thankful for bowl games in Texas

Wait, that's kinda weird

Crystal LoGiudice-USA TODAY Sports

With a new bowl game in Tucson this year, the possibility of the Arizona Wildcats not going anywhere for the postseason seemed to become more than just a buzz. But Greg Byrne ended those rumors (probably) by saying they are focused on three bowl games in Texas as their potential landing spots. "I think there's maybe a real long-shot of staying here in Tucson, but I don't think that's going to be a possibility unless something dramatically changes," Byrne said in the article.
