Arizona Vs. Louisiana Lafayette Final Score: Wildcats Hold On For 45-37 Win

The University of Arizona Wildcats managed to hold on for a 45-37 win over the Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin' Cajuns to finish their season with a record of 4-8.

The game against the visiting 8-2 Sun Belt team was a high-scoring affair. Louisiana-Lafayette picked up the first score of the game with an 11 yard Harry Peoples rushing touchdown in the first quarter. Arizona's Taimi Tutogi tied the game with a short rushing touchdown to open the second quarter, but the Cajuns went back on top 13-7 on a touchdown pass from Blaine Gautier to Alonzo Harris.

With just over three minutes left in the first half, Nick Foles connected with Juron Criner on a nine yard pass to put the Wildcats on top 14-13. Arizona would not surrender the lead for the remainder of the game, despite Louisiana scoring three touchdowns in the third quarter.

Quarterback Nick Foles, who was questionable heading into game time, ended up with a tremendous performance to wrap up his season. He finished the game 33-for-43 with 352 passing yards, three touchdowns and a fourth quarter interception that was returned for a Cajuns touchdown. Criner led all Wildcats receivers with 129 yards on nine catches and two touchdowns.

Louisiana-Lafayette Vs. Arizona Game Time, TV Schedule And More

The Arizona Wildcats are riding high after knocking off ASU last weekend and need to finish their season on a high note. Despite not being bowl eligible, Saturday's game means a lot to the program.

Nick Foles, Juron Criner, Keola Antolin, Trevin Wade and the rest of the seniors will be playing their final game at Arizona Stadium. For such a talented class of seniors, it truly is a shame the program was not able to do more with their collective talents. A big win would be a great way to send out our players. And along with those seniors, it may be the final game for many of the coaches on the staff. There is a chance a few of them are retained by Rich Rodriguez, but it looks unlikely at this point.

This will be the first game of the Rodriguez era in Tucson, even though he will not be on the sidelines. Expect the recently hired coach to spend most of his time in the press box meeting with boosters and long-time fans, although he is expected to speak and address the crowd at halftime.

Kickoff Time: 2 p.m. from Tucson.

TV Coverage: The game will not be televised. For those wanting to catch the festivities, tickets can be purchased at ArizonaAthletics.com.

Radio: The Wildcat IMG Radio Network, with 1290 AM The Source airing the game locally.

Team Site: Arizona Desert Swarm
