    Cats Aware of Trojans' Gifts

    The Game:
    The Arizona Wildcats (3-1, 1-0 in the Pacific-10 Conference) travel to Los Angeles for a regionally televised (ABC-TV) football game against the No. 18-ranked (#16 USA Today/ESPN) USC Trojans (3-0, 0-0). Kickoff is set for 12:30 p.m. (PDT/MST) Saturday, Oct. 7 in the 92,000-seat Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. Keith Jackson, Tim Brant and Todd Harris will describe the play for ABC. A crowd of 55,000 is anticipated.

    Some Game Themes:
    Two 3-1 teams... USC had the horses to be picked second in the pre-season Pac-10 media poll. Arizona was tabbed eighth Arizona, 2-0 on the road this year, takes another trip Arizona's second game of the season against a ranked opponent (Ohio State was the first)UA quarterback Ortege Jenkins' debut, of sorts, against USC. UA missed the Trojans in 1997-98 and last year Jenkins played 10 snaps at wide receiver and one closing series under center against USC A trip home for some 30 Cats from Southern California Will Arizona have some of its injured offensive line regulars back for the game, or keep going with the hard-working reserves who dominated at Stanford?

    The Series:
    Southern California leads the series 19-5 though the teams have split the last eight games. The Cats won last year in Tucson, 31-24. USC won the last game in the Coliseum, 14-7, in 1996. Arizona's last victory in the Coliseum came in 1990, 35-28. The series dates to 1916 when the teams met in Phoenix and Troy left with a 20-7 victory.

    The Coaches:
    Arizona--Dick Tomey (DePauw '64) is in his 14th year at Arizona (93-59-4) and 24th overall (156-105-7). He is the winningest coach at both Arizona and Hawaii. He is 4-8 against USC including one loss while at Hawaii. USCBPaul Hackett (UC Davis '69) is in his third year at Southern California (17-12) and sixth year overall (30-32-1). He is 0-1 against UA as a head coach.

    Last Week:
    at Stanford - Cats 27, Cardinal 3
    Arizona searched its offensive play book and settled on a football style that coordinator Dino Babers later called 'Neanderthal,' and used the primitive goods to help whip Stanford, 27-3, on the road in the Bay Area. Meantime, the Cats were markedly similar on defense and used consistent physical play to thwart the Cardinal eleven's offensive intentions time and again. Arizona's offensive line had one starter playing his normal position and a true freshman center who never had played. 'Whatever it takes' was the general theme. The Cats had a 100-yard rusher, allowed no sacks, overcame some penalties, tossed in some big plays by Ortege Jenkins and his receivers, and put points on the board. The defense scored, too, on a 32-yard fumble return by Idris Haroon after a Joe Tafoya ball-jarring sack. The Cats' kicking game gave it solid field position throughout , as did a defense which forced six Stanford turnovers. UA enjoyed the sudden-change syndrome and scored 20 points off the Cardinal miscues, including the fumble return. Tailback Clarence Farmer's 100-yard rushing effort (18-116) was the first by a UA true-freshman running back in the past 19 seasons. He had his first career start in a two-back set and made a move to keep his shared duties with Larry Croom and Leo Mills on the upswing. Wide receiver Brad Brennan, on his first play back from injury exile, caught a 36-yard scoring pass from Jenkins. Placekicker Sean Keel continued his improvement over UA's '99 woes (6-19), knocking both his field goal tries through the uprights. He's hit four of five this year. The play of the offensive line was a big story, with only one guy off UA's opening-game depth chart -- right guard Kevin Barry - in the game. The Cats had a season-high 390 yards in total offense and dominated play up front.

    Noting the Trojans:
    Oregon State got Southern California's attention with its first victory over the Trojans in 33 years on Saturday, 31-21, to knock USC from No. 6 to No. 18 in the rankings... Tailback Sultan McCullough has 88 carries for 388 rushing yards this year. That compares to Arizona's top guy in carries, Leo Mills, with 40... The No. 3 USC tailback, Petros Papadakis, has scored four TDs in short-yardage situations to lead the club... As usual, USC has guys like wide receiver Kareem Kelly (20 receptions, 277 yards), of whom one reporter wrote, "...has more tools than a carpenter." ...Trojan inside linebackers Zeke Moreno and Markus Steele are both Butkus Award "watch list" players. Moreno leads the team with 8 tackles for loss while Steele leads with 31 total and has 7 for losses... QB Carson Palmer has come back nicely from the collarbone injury which stalled his ascension last year. He's eighth on USC's career passing list with 245 career completions - as a sophomore... Arizona's last victory over a ranked team: 31-24 against USC a year ago...

    Arizona Travel Plans
    The Cats will depart Tucson via Champion Air charter at 5:30 p.m. Oct. 6, with scheduled arrival in Burbank at 7 p.m. The team will quarter at the Hilton Pasadena, 150 South Robles Ave. (626-577-1000). The return flight is scheduled to depart following the game with arrival in Tucson around 8 p.m. Arizona SID Tom Duddleston Jr. and associate SID Richard Paige will accompany the team. No walk-through at the Coliseum on Friday is scheduled.

    Arizona Coach Dick Tomey:
    Tomey, 62, a member of the American Football Coaches Association Board of Trustees and the NCAA Football Rules Committee, is in his 14th season at UA and is the school's -- and Hawaii's -- all-time victories leader. Tomey is No. 8 on the all-time list of Pac-10 conference coaching victories and the leading active coach. He has nine winning seasons and two .500 years in his tenure at Arizona, plus has taken seven teams to bowl games. Tomey's leadership and recruiting ability have helped Arizona attract players who earned 17 All-America honors during the last decade, plus Arizona had 60 players in the professional ranks during the 1990s. His players have won four Pac-10 defensive Player of the Year awards, five Morris Trophy awards for top league lineman and six major national awards -- Thorpe Award, Outland Trophy, Bronco Nagurski Award, UPI Lineman of the Year, Lou Groza Award and the Mosi Tatupu Award. He is No. 9 among active Division I-A coaches in career victories. Tomey is one of only three coaches to be the all-time victories leader at two schools, joining Bear Bryant (Kentucky/Alabama) and George Welsh (Navy/Virginia). He has suffered only three losing seasons in 23 years as a head coach.

    Injury Report:
    Starting left guard Steven Grace missed the Utah/SDSU/Stanford games with a shoulder injury (aggravated vs. Ohio State) and is likely out for the year. Starting center Bruce Wiggins (ankle) and starting LT Makoa Freitas (foot) missed the Stanford game and are questionable for USC. Backup DE Austin Uku (shoulder) is doubtful for USC. Reserve DE Aaron Huisman saw his first action at Stanford after a concussion in camp. Special teams player Scott McKee (hamstring) missed the Stanford trip and is questionable for USC.

    Missed starts because of injury:
    10 - LG Grace (3), WR Brennan (3), C Bruce Wiggins (1), OT Makoa Freitas (1), WR Wade (1), OT McFadden (1).

    A Guy Named Joe
    Senior defensive end Joe Tafoya has two scoring plays - jarring hits on sacks which caused fumbles that Arizona recovered for scoop-and-score returns of 10 yards (Adrian Koch at Utah) and 32 yards (Idris Haroon at Stanford). That's a nice bit of work for a guy who returned to his natural position this year after spending some time as an interior tackle in 1999. In four games he has 18 tackles (2 for loss), two forced fumbles, a fumble recovery and two passes batted away. In the opener he had two sacks and two tackles for loss among eight hits, knocked down a fourth-down pass on 4th-and-goal at the 2 yard-line, and one sack caused a fumble which UA returned for a score. The Utah work earned him Pac-10 Defensive Player of the Week honors for Sept. 5. Tafoya was the Cats' sacks leader in 1999 with 10 and the co-leader with 14 tackles for loss in a second-team All-Pac-10 effort.

    Yo, Adrian
    Senior outside linebacker Adrian Koch is making his final year a fun whirl in college football. At Stanford he had a sack to set up a short field for UA's first touchdown and recovered a fumble. He has three tackles for loss on the year. On Aug. 16, with minutes left in UA's training camp at Cochise College, he suffered an anterior cruciate ligament tear in his right knee. It appeared that the football career of the U.S. Marine veteran was over. Seventeen days later he was a game captain at Utah, made his first career start, notched four tackles and punctuated the game with a fumble recovery and 10-yard scoring return on the fourth play of the second half to put UA in the lead at 7-3. The ligament tear turned out to be relatively minor damage to an old injury, and Koch's able to play in a brace. Now he's fighting off Joe Siofele for the starting role, but it's an amicable contest by some team guys.

    Bradley GT
    Wide receiver Brad Brennan had played one snap this year because of hamstring/back problems. He's nearing full strength and saw action at Stanford. No kidding. On his first play (and the first play of a series), he took a post-corner route and Ortege Jenkins hit him at the 10 yard-line, Brennan made a move and scored from 36 yards. His return should help the Cats' improving offensive production. The 36-yard effort is characteristic of Brennan's style. He's been the team leader in yards per catch the past two years.

    Squeezing the Most Out of It
    UA senior quarterback Ortege Jenkins is 3-1 in his first real year as the sole proprietor of the position, and it's been somewhat of a learning experience for the veteran fifth-year player. A record of 2-0 on the road underscores his best feature so far: do what it takes and take what you get. He has completed 42 of his last 68 passes (62 percent) after a slow start, and has led UA to three victories as the guy. In the past few years, it used to be if a Wildcat QB got whacked or had trouble, he was out of the game watching the other guy (Keith Smith or O.J.) give it a go. Not so in 2000. Jenkins has the reins. Against SDSU he completed 19 passes for 200 yards and a TD - the third-most completions in his career. He is one of 23 senior QB candidates for the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award. Jenkins was a 1997 Pac-10 freshman record holder (19 TD throws), a 1998 big-play icon (somersault TD at Washington) and a 1999 thrower with 61 percent accuracy and a 144.72 efficiency rating. Jenkins' 4,400 career total offense yardage is No. 6, as is his 4,123 career passing yards. He's 12-6 as a starter.

    D-Line Delight
    Arizona ranks 9th nationally in rushing defense and much of that comes from improved depth up front. UA held Stanford to 68 net rushing yards, with only 26 negative yards on three sacks. The Cats simply stopped the run (until late in the game when the Cardinal ran off the last four minutes with seven running plays (and one incomplete pass) for 33 of that total rushing yardage). SU had a 1st-and-goal and had to settle for a field goal, too. The team leaders in tackles for loss are guys up front - DE Joe Tafoya (6) and DT Anthony Thomas (5). The Cats had 19 tackles from its defensive linemen against San Diego State and helped lead another goal-line stand, turning SDSU away from a 1st-and-goal at the UA 1 yard-line without any points (missed FG). UA also did a good job keeping Aztec star Larry Ned's yardage (29 carries, 85 yards) mostly in between the 30s. In his first start since 1998 (redshirted last year), DT Anthony Thomas had five hits including three for losses against SDSU, while DE Idris Haroon (5), DE Johnny Jackson (4), Tafoya (3), DT Ben Alualu (1), DT Young Thompson (1) and DT Keoni Fraser (1) each had tackles. Four of those guys start, but eight of them (including DE Alex Luna) play. Luna had an interception at Stanford, his career first. UA has 14 sacks. Against Utah, the team had six for minus-63 yards, including two caused fumbles that UA turned into points.

    Who's Next?
    UA used a new offensive line at Stanford. "New" as in two (or three) replaced starters. True freshman center Reggie Sampay started for injured Bruce Wiggins, backup Darren Safranek started for injured left tackle Makoa Freitas, right tackle Marques McFadden started at left guard for ill Aaron Higginbotham who had started two games for injured Steven Grace, and backup Makai Freitas started for McFadden at right tackle. Right guard Kevin Barry did his normal thing. It's a deepening group. Sampay's job at SU was pretty impressive for a 17-year-old in as complex a position as exists in college football. The previous week, UA needed some help from its depth against SDSU and the line responded by helping the Cats double the season offensive production. At Stanford it was a modest but season-high 390 total yards and the group gave up no sacks. The unit allowed only one sack on 31 pass attempts vs. SDSU.

    Farm Aid for Tailbacks
    True freshman tailback Clarence Farmer is heating up UA's competition at the position. He did a real job on The Farm. His 116 yards at Stanford (18 carries) gave him his first three-digit day and pushed him into team leads with 211 season yards, 70 ypg and 6.4 yards per carry. He scored his first touchdown at Stanford on a typical bruising three-yard run. The 100-yard day was the first by an Arizona true-freshman since quarterback Ronald Veal rushed 22 times for 142 yards against Oregon State in 1987. He is the first true-freshman running back to do since Vance Johnson rushed 24 times for 183 yards against Fresno State in 1981. Against San Diego State, he averaged 7.3 yards per pop for 95 yards on 13 carries The Cats have a good, youthful situation in the backfield. UA used a two-back set to open a new offensive line at Stanford. the game in Palo Alto, with Farmer joining sophomore Larry Croom, who has 174 yards and a 4.6 average. Soph Leo Mills has 158 yards and a 4.1 average. True freshman Anthony Fulcher saw his first action at Stanford, playing on kickoff units and rushing twice for 7 yards. The four backs give Arizona's tailback position 550 yards on 113 carries - 4.9 yards per tote.

    Baked Goods
    Arizona is among national leaders (7th) in turnover ratio with a 1.75 per game margin. UA is fifth in the country with nine fumble recoveries, tied for sixth with 15 total turnovers gained and tied for 23rd with six interceptions. Such forte - making contact which jars the ball loose - was a heavy off-season emphasis. The Cats would be higher in margin if not for two dropped punts which should have been fair catches, and a couple of hasty throws (among Arizona's eight team turnovers). Still, the turnover business, at +7, is a huge welcome feature of 2000 Wildcat football. When the ball's on the ground, UA appears to be the team most ready to get it, too. UA has recovered nine of opponents' 10 fumbles.

    Secondary Steps Up
    Trial by fire has helped UA develop what appears to be a quality young secondary. The group has four of UA's six interceptions this year. Redshirt freshmen cornerbacks Michael Jolivette and David Hinton, and redshirt soph safety Brandon Nash have acquitted themselves well in coverage and run support, joining the elder in the secondary, sophomore free safety Jarvie Worcester. (Worcester had seven starts in 1999.) Junior college transfer Jermaine Chatman is pushing his way into the first unit, sharing some time with Hinton. Jolivette (2), Hinton and Nash have interceptions and each on effort rather than simply being in the right place at the right time. UA has good depth, too, with safeties Zaharius Johnson and Clay Hardt and corner David Laudermilk also seeing playing time. LB Lance Briggs and OLB Alex Luna have the other picks for the Cats. The team had a total of five interceptions in 1999.

    Catching On
    Freshman WR Andrae Thurman caught six balls for 82 yards in his first real piece of playing time vs. SDSU. A a week later at Stanford, soph Bobby Wade returned after missing a game with injury and led the way with five grabs for 74 yards including one of 46 yards to set up a TD. Those two lead the team with 11 receptions apiece. Brandon Marshall has started a couple of games and has seven receptions. Brad Brennan's return from injury at Stanford could add some punch. He's a slight-of-build big-play receiver - like his 36-yard TD catch at Stanford on his first play back showed. Malosi Leonard and Lance Relford also see rotation time. All but Brennan play on special teams. Thurman returned a blocked punt for a touchdown against the Aztecs. Wade returned a free kick 75 yards for a score against Ohio State, but it was called back by a holding penalty and reduced to a 22-yard return. Three plays later, he caught a short pass and took it through traffic for a 60-yard score. The play was a career-long effort for Wade and QB Ortege Jenkins.

    What a Pal
    Punter Chris Palic had a career-high 11 punts against Ohio State and a then-high 10 punts at Utah. He had five against San Diego State and seven at Stanford. He has done an outstanding and unselfish job of keeping UA's defense in decent starting field position. In the last two games, opponents total punt return yardage is 2 yards on three returns. At Palo Alto he helped UA start with average field position at its 37 yard-line while Stanford started at its 23. He put three inside the 20 in each of the first two games, one vs. SDSU and two at Stanford. He has 33 punts and only one touchback. The Buckeyes had one long return (47 yards) to hurt the net figure (36.7), but Palic's improvement has been marked. He's kicked four rugby-style punts this year including left-footers against the Buckeyes and Aztecs. The rugby kicks are accomplished on the run to either his right or left out of the personal-protector's pocket. The move causes some consternation and re-alignment by the return unit because one day he might not kick the ball... Two of his kicks have been mishandled and Arizona recovered one of those and turned it into seven points shortly afterward. Palic is a member of the 2000 American Football Coaches Good Works Team for outstanding athletic, scholarship and community service.

    Hitting the B-Man
    Senior tight end Brandon Manumaleuna returned to the fold with four catches for 39 yards against SDSU, then added two catches for first downs and 55 total yards against the Cardinal. He had no receptions in the first two games, though remained a key part of the Cats' rushing game and pass protection. He and H-back Eli Wnek give Arizona's power sets some physical skill position people. Manumaleuna plays split, H and motioning positions, too.

    3 x 3 and 4:1
    Arizona has allowed three opponents only three points each, the reason the Cats are No. 4 nationally in scoring defense 9.0). The Cats have allowed one rushing touchdown (by Ohio State), two reception scores (OSU) and five field goals. Goal-line defense has been a big help. Opponents have had six 1st-and-goal opportunities and only 20 points. You can say all kinds of things about college football, but the single best statistic is points. You need them to win. Opponents aren't getting a bundle against Arizona in 2000. Through four games in 1999, the Wildcats had given up 141 points. Through four games this year Arizona has given up 36 points. That's an improvement of 4:1.

    Bagging It
    UA has 14 sacks and added another name to the list of sackers with a hit at Stanford by LB Adrian. Against Utah, the Cats notched six sacks for minus-63 yards, including two caused fumbles that UA turned into points. Another stopped a fourth-down try with the game still in doubt with 10 minutes remaining. In all vs. the Utes, UA recorded 15 tackles for losses of 74 yards. Against Ohio State the Cats recorded five more TFL. Against SDSU it was 13 more tackles for loss. Joining team leader Joe Tafoya (3) with sacks are Joe Siofele (2), Idris Haroon (2), and Koch, Austin Uku, Brandon Nash, Young Thompson, Keoni Fraser and Zaharius Johnson.

    Sophomore inside linebacker Lance Briggs is still learning the trade, but has emphasized that his move from freshman fullback to a natural linebacker spot was only a question of time. He's the team leader with 38 total tackles and intercepted his first pass against SDSU, tacking on a 17-yard return. He has four tackles for loss, fourth on the club. Against Utah, Briggs had five tackles on the Utes' first nine plays from scrimmage, and finished with a game-high 16 tackles including one for a loss. Fellow inside linebacker Antonio Pierce is second on the team with 26 hits and has five tackles for loss, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery. He notched the first sack at Stanford to set the tone for UA's defensive effort. Shelton Ross is the third 'backer in the Cats rotation and has eight tackles. They all like to hit.

    Banking It
    Backup cornerback Anthony Banks filled in for injured Bobby Wade as the punt returner against San Diego State and earned a shot against Stanford. He had one return for three yards but also fumbled on the play. Wade resumed the role. Still, Banks was listed No. 24th nationally this week with a 16.6 average on five returns. Both are capable of the big one.

    Blocking It
    Strong safety Brandon Nash got his second career blocked punt against San Diego State, a play that culminated in Andrae Thurman's 34-yard return for a score. It was the Cats' second block of the year. Specialist Peter Hansen got his sixth career place-kick block against Utah on the Utes' final field goal try. He poses a 10-foot barrier: Hansen is 6-foot-8, was a letterman on Arizona's basketball team last year, and has an outstanding vertical leap. Last year Hansen had three of the six kicks Arizona blocked. The Cats had 14 in the 1998-99 and appear to be in tune for 2000. Another on the squad who has blocked a kick is DE Joe Tafoya. Arizona had 37 blocks in the last decade and puts strong emphasis on the effort.

    Red Zone Offense and Defense:
    A 1-for-5 night vs. San Diego State on Sept. 16 skewed UA's redzone offensive numbers. Arizona had two turnovers and a missed FG inside the 20 yard-line against the Aztecs. At Stanford UA was 3-for-4 and held Stanford to one foray and a field goal. UA scored a touchdown on its lone RZ penetration against Ohio State. Ohio State had two touchdowns and two FGs on its four trips. UA scored a TD in two red zone trips at Utah, and the unsuccessful foray was a fourth-down rush in a clock-eat mode at 1:43 remaining. On the other side, UA was superb and turned back Utah four times in its visits to the Cats' 16, 11, 2 and 19 yard-lines. UA has had two 1st-and-goal defensive stops for zero points by opponents.

    Arizona in the Red Zone:
    11 trips, 4 TD, 2 FG 1st-and-Goal: 4 (3 TD, 1 FG) 55% scoring, 30% TD

    Opponents in the Zone:
    11 trips, 2 TD, 4 FG 1st-and-Goal: 6 (2 TD, 2 FG) 55% scoring, 18% TD

    Sudden-Change Possessions:
    Arizona capitalized at Stanford for 20 turnover points. UA has shown good effort in years in terms of ball handling, creating turnovers and taking advantage of sudden change. One botched game was three lost fumbles and an interception against SDSU. Still, Arizona is handling "sudden change" better than opponents, with 50 points to 6 after miscues. The Cats are +7 in turnovers. Against Stanford UA returned a fumble for a score. Against San Diego State a blocked punt return (not officially counted as a turnover) helped the Cats score 7 quick points. Against Ohio State, UA turned a fumbled punt into a quick touchdown. At Utah, the Cats recovered third-quarter fumbles after jarring sacks by Joe Tafoya and Idris Haroon, with whip linebacker Adrian Koch putting points up on a scoop-and-score effort following the first, and the Cats' Sean Keel kicking a 44-yard field goal after the second. UA scored a safety against the Buckeyes on a bad pitch from QB Steve Bellisari.

  • >Redshirt freshman corner Michael Jolivette has broken up seven passes in four games. Last year's leader was Kelvin Hunter with 8 in 12 games. As a team the Cats have 28 passes defensed and moved into the national Top 20 in pass efficiency defense this week...
  • >A guy named Joe, redshirt freshman whip linebacker Joe Siofele, has given Arizona two guys at the spot. Senior Adrian Koch has started each game, but Siofele is bolstering the defensive unit with some solid play as the apprentice for the position which is so crucial to UA's eagle flex. Joe recovered a fumble and was in on some knocks at Stanford. He has two tackles for losses (both sacks) this year and appears to be a guy who could become an anchor at the spot...
  • >Neither Arizona nor opponents has been too effective on third-down conversions. Arizona has a 23 percent rate while opponents enjoy a 28 percent conversion mark...
  • >UA has suffered 38 penalties for 300 yards, an average of 7 per game. Last year the club set a "record" with 115 penalties for 930 yards...
  • >Arizona has played nine different defensive backs on plays from scrimmage - corners Michael Jolivette and David Hinton, SS Brandon Nash, FS Jarvie Worcester, corners Jermaine Chatman and Anthony Banks, SS Zaharius Johnson, FS Clay Hardt and cornerback David Laudermilk. A year ago the secondary broke up 24 passes.
  • > The offensive line has allowed only one sack in the last two games after a workout against Ohio State. The Buckeyes had eight sacks (the most since No. 3-ranked Washington had eight in a 1991 victory in Seattle, 54-0). Like everyone else on offense, the line, considered an Arizona strength, is developing depth and getting used to each other and new skill-position players...
  • >The crowd of 57,367 for the Ohio State game was the biggest home-opener crowd in Arizona history. The next biggest home-opening crowd also was for a Big Ten team - 57,284 for a 1987 game against Iowa...
  • >New faces in action in the first two games: starters in cornerbacks Michael Jolivette and David Hinton, junior college redshirt offensive guard Kevin Barry, true freshman TB Clarence Farmer and true freshman center Reggie Sampay. Key backups or special teams players in free safety Clay Hardt, junior college corner Jermaine Chatman, OLB Joe Siofele; receivers Andrae Thurman, Gary Love, Lance Relford and juco redshirt Brandon Marshall; and running back Anthony Fulcher...
  • >Sophomore Sean Keel stepped up and booted field goals of 33 and 35 yards at Stanford to improve to 4-for-5 this year. He booted a 44-yard field goal on his first try of the year at Utah. He added a 41-yard make against SDSU (and missed a 36-yard effort). After UA's 6-19 season in that regard in 1999, Keel's working on a 9-for-13 career mark. The Utah kick was the longest of his career...
