Come join us as we watch the Wildcats take on the Wolf Pack in the Gildan New Mexico Bowl!
Arizona, the first Pac-12 team to play in the Albuquerque-based bowl game, is 7-5 overall and have been ranked among the nationâ€™s best all season, cracking the top 25 or receiving votes in every poll since Week 2. They upset two ranked teams, beating 18th-ranked Oregon State (59-38) and 10th-ranked USC (39-36). Arizona also boasts the nationâ€™s leading rusher, Kaâ€™Deem Carey, who has tallied 1,757 yards.
It is an interesting match-up with Nevada, which has the nationâ€™s second leading rusher in Stefphon Jefferson. Arizona is seventh in the country in total offense while Nevada is 11th. The two programs have met before, but not since 1941. To date, the all-time series is 1-1-1.
â€śWhat a great matchup to kickoff college footballâ€™s post season,â€ť Jeff Siembieda, Gildan New Mexico Bowl Executive Director said. â€śTwo of the top offenses in America, the top two running backs in the country, two of college footballâ€™s top quarterbacks and playmakers all over the field. I think weâ€™ve got the potential for a great, exciting football game.â€ť
