The Arizona Wildcats met rock bottom this afternoon in Boulder as they fell to the last place Colorado Buffaloes by a score of 49-28. With the loss, Arizona is all-but-guaranteed a 12th place finish in the conference with two games to play.
With a halftime score of 20-10, Arizona still had a chance to pull out the victory with a big effort in the second half. Unfortunately for UA and interim head coach Tim Kish, the team allowed two passing touchdowns in the third quarter that would essentially end the game with a quarter to play. Arizona scored three touchdowns in the final 16 minutes -- one of which was a 29-yard interception return from Tra'Mayne Bondurant -- but it would not be enough on Saturday.
With wins gusting as high as 70mph, Nick Foles experienced one of the worst games of his career. The senior quarterback threw for 352 yards, but tossed three interceptions and was completely immobile in the pocket. In a slight bit of good news, freshman Ka'Deem Carey had two rushing touchdowns, though he only touched the ball seven times on the ground.
Arizona football has not been at this low of a point in nearly a decade. The offense stinks, the defense stinks, special teams play stinks and the coaching staff has absolutely no idea what they are doing.
There are only two more miserable games left to be played before this season mercifully ends.
