TUCSON, Ariz. (13 News) - Arizona already knows it is going bowling this season.

If the Wildcats keep winning, there is no telling where they will end up.

The No. 23 Wildcats took another big step to a major bowl berth with a 34-31 road win at Colorado on Saturday, Nov. 11.

Noah Fifita passed for 214 yards and two touchdowns for Arizona while teammate Jonah Coleman ran for 179 yards.

Colorado’s Shedeur Sanders passed for 262 yards and two touchdowns while running for another 41 yards and one score.

Arizona returns home next week for a showdown with No. 13 Utah. Kickoff has not been set, but it could be a primetime matchup. Utah battled No. 5 Washington on Saturday, but the Utes ended up losing 35-28.

It was the Wildcats’ first win as a ranked team since a 77-13 rout of Northern Arizona during Week 3 of the 2015 season. Arizona secured its first four-game win streak since 2019.

Arizona’s Jacob Cowling grabbed his 10th touchdown catch of the season against the Buffaloes. That is second-most in a single season and he’s tied with Keith Hartwig (1976) and Rob Gronkowski (2008). The all-time school record is 11, done six other times.
