The 2013 Arizona Wildcats football team represented the University of Arizona in the 2013 NCAA Division I FBS football season. The Wildcats played their home games at Arizona Stadium in Tucson for the 85th straight year. The 2013 season was Arizona's third in the South Division of the Pac-12 Conference and the second for head coach Rich Rodriguez.

Before the season[edit]

Previous season[edit]

In the 2012 season, head coach Rich Rodriguez's first at Arizona, the Wildcats went 8–5 overall and 4–5 in Pac-12 play. The team defeated Nevada 49–48 in the 2012 New Mexico Bowl after trailing 48–35 with 1:48 remaining in the game.[2]

No Arizona player was taken in the NFL Draft for the first time since 2005, although three signed with teams as free agents. Quarterback Matt Scott signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars, center Kyle Quinn signed with the Philadelphia Eagles, and wide receiver Dan Bucker signed with the Arizona Cardinals.[3]

Spring practice[edit]

Arizona held fifteen spring practices from March 12 through April 13 including an hour-long scrimmage at Phoenix College on March 29. The team's defense won the scrimmage by one point after stopping the offense on its final drive. Quarterback B.J. Denker threw for four touchdowns and 176 yards. Javelle Allen had 57 yards passing and 50 through the air. Coach Rodriguez rested all-American running back Ka'Deem Carey, who appeared for only one series. Several key defensive players were held out entirely, including Jake Fischer, Marquis Flowers, Jonathan McKnight, Shaquille Richardson, C.J. Dozier, Jourdon Grandon and Dan Pettinato.[4]

Arizona's offense won the 2013 spring game, held on April 13 in front of 4,095 at the program's practice facility, Kindall/Sancet Stadium, and televised on Pac-12 Arizona. Carey and Fischer again sat out, among others.[5] Denker went 13–20, 246 yards, 4 touchdowns, and 1 interception; Jesse Scroggins went 6–14, 44 yards, 2 touchdowns, and 1 interception; and Jack Nykaza went 8–12, 89 yards, and 2 touchdowns. Dakota Conwell and Shane Wilson led the defense with 5 tackles apiece. Dame Ndiaye had 4 tackles, 1 sack (−10 yards), 1 tackle-for-loss (−1), a pass-broken-up, and a forced-fumble. William Parks and Tra'mayne Bondurant each made an interception.[6]

Junior RB Ka’Deem Carey, the nation’s leading rusher and a consensus All-American in 2012, rushed 16 times for 171 yards (averaging 10.7 yards per carry) as Arizona routed the UNLV Rebels in a 58–13 road victory at Sam Boyd Stadium. Carey saw his first action of the season after serving a one-game suspension related to offseason off-the-field issues. His first carry was a 58-yard touchdown run, early in the second quarter, which set the tone for the rest of the game.

Defensively, Arizona also showed solid performance; senior LB Jake Fischer intercepted UNLV QB Nick Sherry midway through the second quarter and returned it 49 yards for a touchdown; soon afterward, safety Tra’Mayne Bondurant picked off Sherry and ran 52 yards for a touchdown, his second in as many weeks.

The Cats excelled with their ground game, finishing with 68 carries for 397 yards and five touchdowns. Arizona, up 45–6 at halftime, attempted only four passes after the break.

Arizona senior QB B.J. Denker also had two rushing scores in the first half. He scored from 35 and 4 yards in the first quarter. Denker finished the game with 60 yards on 16 carries, but only passed for 81 yards on 8-of-21 passing. For the second straight game, Denker was interception-free.

In their previous meeting in 2001, Arizona defeated the Rebels 38–21 and Arizona leads the all-time series 2–0. Arizona has also won the Maaco Bowl Las Vegas at Sam Boyd Stadium in 2008, defeating BYU 31–21 under then-head coach Mike Stoops.

In the final home game the 2013 season, Ka'Deem Carey ran for 206 yards and four touchdowns while becoming Arizona's all-time leading rusher, and the Wildcats pulled off a monumental upset by taking advantage of numerous miscues, shocking the fifth-ranked Oregon Ducks 42–16 in Tucson.

Arizona was coming off consecutive home losses, the most disappointing being the previous week's tough loss against Washington State, a team the Wildcats were expected to defeat.

The Wildcats jumped out to a quick 14–0 lead and kept going for their first win over a top-five team since knocking off the same Oregon team, then number 2, in 2007.

Carey, a junior RB, was the workhorse for Arizona as he has been all season, carrying a school-record 48 times while scoring on runs of 6, 1, 9 and 2 yards to break Art Luppino's career record of 48 total touchdowns set from 1953–1956. Carey also reached 3,913 career yards rushing, breaking the mark of 3,824 set by Trung Canidate from 1996–1999.

Senior QB B.J. Denker, who was 19 of 22 passing, threw for 178 yards and two touchdowns, ran for 102 more. As a team, Arizona had 304 yards rushing against Oregon, a season-high. This was Denker's final home game as a Wildcat.

Oregon sputtered most of the day, showing only flashes of the offensive brilliance that had them No. 2 in total offense and third in scoring entering the game.

Ducks QB Marcus Mariota, widely considered a contender for the Heisman Award, threw for 308 yards and two touchdowns, but also had two interceptions, his first since Nov. 17, 2012, against Stanford (the Cardinal, with this Oregon loss and their rout of traditional rival California 63–13 at Stanford Stadium in the Big Game, clinched a spot in the Pac-12 championship game, and a chance at the Rose Bowl, that many thought was the Ducks' for the taking.)

Senior LB Jake Fischer, who like Denker was playing in his final game at Arizona Stadium, led the team with 14 tackles. Fischer led an Arizona defense that held an Oregon offense that came into the game averaging 50.9 points per game to just 16. Fischer now has 75 tackles on the season and 259 for his career. This was Fischer’s first-ever win against the Ducks.

This win brings the Wildcats' overall win total to seven games, strengthening their chances at a post-season bowl game invitation, possibly to the Alamo Bowl, the Sun Bowl or several others.
