Cats beat up the Bruins 48-12, snap losing streak

Victory is a sweet feeling... Especially when you haven't beaten an FBS opponent in 355 years. That is what the Arizona Wildcats experienced Thursday night on ESPN against the Ucla Bruins, the team's first victory since their win against Ucla last year in the Rose Bowl. The victory marked the first under interim head coach Tim Kish. By halftime, the Cats had stormed out to a commanding 42-7 with help from 3 TDs from Foles to Criner, but a fan dressed as a referee ran onto the field and started streaking. During the confusion, the Cats and Bruins got into a sideline clearing brawl which resulted in 10 player suspensions. The game was very odd in the sense that the Cats dominated on both sides of the ball which hasn't been often this season. Arizona can't afford any more slip ups this season if they want to play in a bowl.

Rangers score twice in the 9th, take game 2

Motte could not close the game as the Rangers scored twice to beat the Cardinals 2-1. After leading by 1 at the top of the ninth, but both Young and Hamilton hit sac flies to give Texas game 2 of the fall classic. This is the first World Series comeback win in the ninth since the 2001 Diamondbacks. The series heads to Texas at a 1-1 tie, but St. Louis loses home field advantage. Harrison will take on Lohse on Saturday night.
