Following the 10-9 win over Cal, Arizona head coach Mike Stoops admitted his team “is spent” after two emotional wins in a row.
As if last week’s dramatic win over Iowa wasn’t enough, the Arizona vs. Cal match-up featured 18 penalties, a combined 6-26 third-down conversions, and only a combined 573 total yards from both offenses. The only touchdown in the game came with 1:11 remaining in the game when Arizona quarterback Nick Foles threw a 3-yard touchdown pass.
"We're spent. I think our fans are spent. It was a flat night all the way around. You could just kind of feel it after such an emotional game a week ago. But if you're going to win a championship or you're going to compete for one, you're going to have to find a way to win. Certainly we found a way to win tonight."
Cal head coach Jeff Tedford said, "Just absolutely, unbelievably disappointed."
Cal defensive coordinator Clancy Pendergast stated, "There are no moral victories. I told the guys all week that this game would come down to the last drive and Arizona made the plays at the end."
Arizona is 4-0 for the first time since 1998.
