Making a Statement

Posted: Updated:
SHREVEPORT, La -

Although Arizona will be playing on the national stage in Independence Stadium on New Years eve, they grabbed the country's attention last month.  The Wildcats defeated then 5th ranked Oregon 42-16 at home back on November 23.  While most people are focusing their attention on the offenses of Arizona and Boston College, the Wildcat defense also deserves some credit.  Those 16 points surrendered against the high flying Ducks was the lowest point total for Oregon all season.  The Wildcats agree that win was a statement win for their university, but they don't see it making much of a difference against Boston College.  The Eagles present a much different challenge than Oregon with a heavy rushing attack led by Doak Walker Award winner Andre Williams.  Arizona Head Coach Rich Rodriguez says if his Wildcats can't get off of blocks, they will have a hard time against Boston College.  The Advocare V-100 Bowl kicks off at 11:30am on New Years eve.
