TUCSON, Ariz. (13 News) - The University of Arizona Wildcats made their case for making the Top 25 after pulling off an upset of UCLA Saturday night, November 4.

The final score was 27-10.

The win comes just a week after the Wildcats upset Oregon State 27-24 and now makes the Wildcats bowl eligible.

The victory was also the first time in program history the Wildcats won three consecutive games against ranked opponents.

The Wildcats were led by quarterback Noah Fifita, who was 25-32 for 300 yards and three touchdowns.

All three of his starts have come against ranked opponents.

The Wildcats rushed for 129 yards against UCLA, which was second most allowed by the Bruins this season (133 yards by Oregon State). UCLA had the number one rushing defense in the nation entering the game against the Wildcats.

Receiver Tetairoa McMillan made four catches for 81 yards and one touchdown and has scored seven times this year.

Receiver Jacob Cowing also caught a touchdown pass and now has nine for the year.

The Wildcats travel to Colorado next weekend, November 11.
