1998, A look back: Games 10 and 11

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - It’s the 20th anniversary of the greatest football team in Arizona Wildcats history.

1998.

The year the Cats went 12-1.

As UA prepares for Game #11 of the 2018 season against Washington State, we remember Games #10 and #11 of 1998. The Wildcats had re-found their groove with three straight wins since losing 52-28 to UCLA.

The Pac-12 Championship and a berth in the Rose Bowl were still very real possibilities and so was a chance to become the best team ever at UA.

That’s what stood in front of Arizona as they welcomed in Washington State and then hit the road for Cal-Berkeley.
