TUCSON, Ariz. - University of Arizona cornerback Michael Jolivette, one of the most experienced players on the Wildcat defense, will not make the Arizona football team's trip to Madison, Wis., for the Wildcats' game Saturday against the Badgers.
Jolivette, a 5-foot-10, 180-pound junior from Houston, Texas, injured his left knee in practice Wednesday, and head coach John mackovic said a magnetic resonance scan is necessary to determine the extent of an apparent injury to his medial collateral ligament
Two other UA regulars, also banged up in practice this week, were listed as questionable by Mackovic shortly before the team departed via charter, but he said they'd accompany the team -- free safety Clay Hardt and defensive tackle Vince Feula.
Hardt made the big defensive stop in the waning moments of Arizona's 23-17 victory over Utah last Saturday with a tackle on 4th-and-2 from UA's three yard-line. Feula earned his first career start against the Utes and is part of UA's four-man rotataion opn the interior.
