Cal vs. Arizona: Wildcats Cayleb Jones thankful for his second opportunity

This guy is something special at wide receiver Maybe lost in all of the madness of the "Hill Mary" finish was the night that Cayleb Jones had for the Arizona Wildcats. The Texas transfer finished the night with 13 catches for 186 yards, and scored three times, twice in the fourth quarter. And the moment was certainly not lost on him. At one point in my life I lost everything I lost football. Never in a million years did I think God would bless me like this #witness1 — Cayleb S Jones (@1caylebjones) September 21, 2014 "For me and Austin (Hill), we've both been through a lot,"...

Cal vs. Arizona final score: My view of the final five minutes of the Wildcats' epic comeback

Cal vs. Arizona final score: My view of the final five minutes of the Wildcats' epic comeback

I watched the ending from the Cal sideline, which was horrible and fantastic all at once. After the California Golden Bears had made it a 45-30 game with 5:21 left in the game, I made my way down to the Cal sideline, just like any other home Arizona game. Except, it ended up being not like anything anyone had ever seen before. By the time I had made it down to the field, Arizona was already on the opposite end of the field thanks to a long Anu Solomon pass to DaVonte' Neal. I made my way around the Cal bench in time to have Trey Griffey catch a ball right in front of me. Then two plays...

Listen to the TV and Radio calls of the Hail Mary pass to Austin Hill

These are fantastic. Every great play probably has a great call by the announcers, and here are two that you'll probably enjoy: First, the Pac-12 Network call: and then Brian Jeffries on Arizona radio:

Cal vs. Arizona final score: Anu Solomon's Hail Mary wins it, 49-45

A Hail Mary. No lead in regulation. Woh. Arizona never led for the entire 60 minutes. Not until after game clock wound down had Anu Solomon completed a pass to Austin Hill for a 45-yard touchdown pass on a hail mary did the Wildcats lead over Cal. The play gave UA an improbable 49-45 win to move the Wildcats to 4-0 on the year. Moreover, it gave them a victory despite giving up 573 total yards and rushing for just a total of 107. An ominous start: Arizona gave up a 24-yard play on the first Cal touch from scrimmage. Two plays later, the Golden Bears used a 44-yard run for a touchdown. Cal...

Arizona football: Samajie Grant injury: Wildcat receiver not playing vs. Cal

Arizona football: Samajie Grant injury: Wildcat receiver not playing vs. Cal

Looks like a no-go for Arizona's second-leading receiver. Arizona Wildcats sophomore wide receiver Samajie Grant is not out warming up with the team ahead of the game against Cal. Grant suffered a concussion in the second quarter vs. Nevada last week, but was listed as questionable on the injury report. No player who has been listed as questionable has played that week so far for Rich Rodriguez' team. DeAndre' Miller is also out.

Cal vs. Arizona Q&A with California Golden Blogs

The Arizona Wildcats are on upset alert against cal. We check in with California Golden Blogs to see the Saturday game from their perspective. Also, check out our answers to their questions over here. 1. This week Sonny Dykes said his players are carrying themselves a little differently this year. How much do you see that on the field and how hopeful are you that last year was just result of compounding bad luck? boomtho: I think it definitely is coming across on the field. Last year was a rotten year as a number of different factors conspired to destroy our defense: injuries, transfers,...

Arizona football opens Pac-12 against Cal in whiteout

Arizona will wear white jerseys, pants and helmets at home Saturday against California Golden Bears. Watch the official @ArizonaFBall #WhiteOut video spot that played last night in Arizona Stadium: http://t.co/7F3FUpTxdU — Arizona Athletics (@AZATHLETICS) September 14, 2014 Since nobody likes the red and blue jerseys anyway, the Arizona Wildcats will go with a whiteout road uniform combination on Saturday as they host the California Golden Bears. It's the first whiteout for the football team and will be a rare look with a white helmet -- that could give us a glimpse of the classic...

Arizona football: Wildcats defensive end Reggie Gilbert explains what's going on with the defensive line

Arizona football: Wildcats defensive end Reggie Gilbert explains what's going on with the defensive line

It's no secret that the Arizona Wildcats have not been able to generate any semblance of a pass rush this season, so we went right to the source to find out why that is. Here's what defensive end Reggie Gilbert had to say about the line's apparent struggles: How are you health-wise after the foot injury? Gilbert: Eh, I'm getting there. That's all I can say right now. I'm not back to my hundred percent self, but I've definitely seen improvements since last week. What do you feel like you did well against Nevada? I was just trying to do whatever the defense called for. I was inside a lot of...

Cal vs. Arizona: Samajie Grant listed as questionable for the Wildcats

Overall, the team is a little healthier heading into conference play The weekly Arizona Wildcats injury report is out, and it appears the team is overall a little healthier than previous weeks. Here's the breakdown: PROBABLE: Jacob Alsadek (foot) QUESTIONABLE: Samajie Grant (concussion), DeAndre' Miller (shoulder) No one is listed as doubtful or out. Grant suffered the concussion early in the second quarter vs. Nevada last week, and I think it's highly unlikely he plays this week. The DeAndre' Miller injury is new, and if he is unable to go, some speed at outside linebacker is lost, which...

Arizona football: Wildcats WR Samajie Grant suffers concussion vs. Nevada

One of Anu Solomon's favorite targets suffered a concussion Saturday night Amongst some of the concerning things exhibited by the Arizona Wildcats in their game against the Nevada Wolf Pack, sophomore wide receiver Samajie Grant apparently suffered a concussion early in the second quarter. Grant went to head coach Rich Rodriguez to try and get back in the game, but he was not allowed back in the game. "I was like, I had kinesiology in college, but I can't remember anything from it," Rodriguez joked after the game. "With my medical background, I'm not a doctor or trainer so I don't...

Pac-12 Power Rankings: Stanford benefits as South goes south

No, the Pac-12 South won't make it easy on gauging the conference hierarchy. Not much has been rearranged since last week's power rankings, but that's probably about to change as teams kick back up after byes and the Pac-12 South attempts to get itself off the mat. 1. Oregon Ducks -- : It's the Ducks on top yet again. They had a little issue with Wyoming through one quarter, but that had more to do with the Cowboys having a good looking football team than it did about Mark Helfrich's prep. There was bound to be a little sluggish start following the Michigan State victory, so I'll give them...

College football rankings: Arizona gaining ground in Coaches poll

The AP Poll doesn't give Arizona much after an underwhelming win against Nevada, but the Amway Coaches Poll is giving the Wildcats some love. The Arizona Wildcats may not have been all that impressive in a single-possession victory against the Nevada Wolf Pack this week, but they are somehow gaining ground in the Amway Coaches Poll. On Sunday, Rich Rodriguez's peers gave the Wildcats 18 votes after the win that pushes UA into conference play with a 3-0 record. Those votes rank Arizona 37th in the country. The three votes in the AP Poll place Arizona at 42nd. Here's a look at the...
