All Access: Holiday Bowl Trip Report: Day 02 [Subscription required]
SAN DIEGO--No. 22 Arizona turned its focus on football Thursday in its first full day here, with meetings and a solid practice toward a Dec. 30 match with No. 20 Nebraska in the Pacific Life Holiday Bowl.
The team did enjoy a few moments of revelry upon its return to the team hotel, with an official 'Red Carpet' welcome by members of the bowl committee, supporters and a mariachi group.
UA practiced for several hours at nearby facilities on the University of San Diego campus, plus enjoyed a lunch on site afterward.
Other activities Thursday included an official Team Welcome reception in the evening, but the Cats will stick to football as much as possible, with a practice scheduled Christmas Day.
