Was that the team that made the cover of SI to start the next year and laid an egg? :lol:

The ’94 Wildcats couldn’t match the buildup, losing a late-season 10-9 game at Oregon that put the Ducks and not Arizona into the Rose Bowl. It was one of the few disappointments of a year that, in my opinion, became and remains the greatest in Tucson sports history.

Wife and I were discussing this the other night.

Greatest football win in Cats history?

Holiday bowl win over Nebraska?

Beat a quality team and finished high in the post season ratings not the preseason one.

The UA's best win is the Fiesta Bowl shutout of the Miami Hurricanes; the UA's best team/season is the 11-1 #4 finish in '98.

Interesting discussion on best football win in UofA history. Kind of like me starting a discussion on ASU's greatest victory on the basketball court.

I haven't watched more than a minute or two of the Alabama/Clemson game tonight. I think the domination of a few teams in the college football arena is not a good thing long term. How about the top four teams in the playoffs each season lose two football scholarships in the next two recruiting classes.

Yeah, if ASU had a top-5 finish in a final AP poll and a couple co-championships in Pac... Oh wait, they don't. Don't bring that ASUBasketball=ArizonaFootball bullshit.

Sorry; 12-1, #4 in 1998 Final AP Poll.

College football doesn't NEED a champ, nor does it NEED bowls. The bowls have been a reward for a good season and, until recent years, fun to watch the teams and the excitement in the stadiums. Now, there are so many bowls that even mediocre seasons get rewarded and 60K+ capacity stadiums are half full, at best. Six wins can get you into a bowl game? Give me a break.
The National Championship of today is still somewhat arbitrary and more a figment of the likes of ESPN and the money interests than anything else. The decline in tv ratings for the championship game over the past three years may be as much of an indicator that the playoffs are not necessary as anything.
