On to the Next One
Well, ZonaZoo, we’re now 6 games into the season and we’ve experienced our first loss in football. Not too shabby, as our team now stands at 5-1 and is ranked 16th in the nation. Equally as noteworthy, the ZonaZoo absolutely crushed it Saturday night. It was completely packed from end zone to end zone and was rocking all. game. long. It makes a huge difference in the stadium’s atmosphere and was commented on by ESPN, Athletics, and numerous members of the team. With 3 home games left this season, let’s carry that energy until the end.
In other news, Volleyball shut down California 3-0 on Wednesday, lost to #1 Stanford 3-1 on Friday, and will host Washington State this Friday at 6pm. Soccer also had games this week against Washington State and Washington, splitting the road trip 1-1.
Looking ahead, we get our first taste of Arizona Men’s Basketball 2014-15 with the McDonald’s Red and Blue Game taking place this Saturday, October 18, at 3:00pm. We know the players are pumped for the season to start and Saturday should be an exciting preview.
All that said, we have a lot to look forward to, Wildcats; on to the next one!
How ‘bout them Cats?! In case you haven’t heard, Thursday night the Wildcats climbed to 5-0 with a 31-24 victory over the then No. 2 Oregon Ducks. We have a lot to brag about this week: we downed the Ducks (AGAIN), we’re ranked #10 in the AP poll, we’re the only undefeated team in the PAC-12, we’re 2-0 against top 10 teams since last season, and the list goes on. Although rushing the field after trumping the Ducks was unforgettable last year, watching the stunned faces of the students in Autzen stadium was equally as awesome. This Saturday’s game against the USC Trojans is huge and not only will our team be in the national spotlight, but so will the ZonaZoo. Kickoff is at 7:30pm and we’re expecting the Zoo to be wild and loud, all 60 minutes of play. As we go into our 7th week of classes, remember it’s a great time to be a Wildcat, ZonaZoo, and as always, #BEARDOWN.
