About Arizona Wildcats

The Arizona Wildcats compete in the South Division of the Pacific-12 Conference, representing the University of Arizona.

The Wildcats have won six conference championships in the Border, Western Athletic, and Pacific-12 conferences. They’ve appeared in 18 bowl games compiling an 8-9-1 postseason record.

Arizona holds the dubious distinction of being the only member of the original Pac-10 to have never competed in a Rose Bowl game.
