The Arizona Wildcats football team is a Division I program for the University of Arizona. The team is located in Tucson, Arizona and plays their home games at Arizona Stadium. Arizona Stadium has a capacity of 57,803 and opened in 1928. The team plays in the Pac-12 Conference, and is currently coached by Rich Rodriguez. This is Rodriguez’s first season with the team, having previously compiled a record of 120-84-2 at Salem, Glenville State, West Virginia, and Michigan, with eight conference titles.
Since their first season in 1899, the team has established themselves as a consistent program within the Pac-12. Throughout their more than 110 year history, the team has compiled a 567-423-33 record with a 6-8-1 record in bowl games. In 1935, the team won their first of two consecutive conference titles. The team has won six overall conference championships including three in the Border Conference, two in the Western Athletic Conference, and most recently in 1993 when they won the Pac-10 under coach Dick Torney. In 1921, the team played in their first bowl game; however, it would take until 1986 for the team to win their first bowl game, a 30-21 win over the North Carolina Tar Heels in the Aloha Bowl. Their most recent bowl game appearance was a 2010 Alamo Bowl appearance, which they lost to Oklahoma State. The team has featured 13 consensus All-Americans, most recently Antoine Cason who also won the Jim Thorpe Award. The team has featured seven College Football Hall of Famers, four players and three coaches.
The team plays two annual rivalry games. The “Kit Carson Rifle” is awarded to the winner between the Wildcats and the New Mexico Lobos. Arizona leads the series 43-18-3 and has been played since 1908; however, this rivalry has been discontinued. Arizona’s biggest rivalry game is between the Wildcats and the Arizona State Sun Devils. This game, known as the “Duel in the Desert” has been played since 1899, and in their 85 games, Arizona leads 47-37-1. The two teams play for the “Territorial Cup,” and the trophy itself has been named the oldest in the NCAA. Arizona won the last matchup between the two teams in a 31-27 victory in Tempe. These two teams compete in the State Farm Territorial Cup Series where the winners in competitions from 18 different sports are tabulated. Since its inception in 2009-10, the Wildcats have won all three.
