In their first year under coach Rich Rodriguez, the Arizona Wildcats had a better graduation rate than every other football team in the Pac-12.

The NCAA’s Academic Progress Rate, released Tuesday, showed the UA’s score of 980 topped the next-closest conference teams, UCLA and Stanford, which were tied at 978.

APR is calculated each year based on a team’s player eligibility, graduation and retention rates.

The UA men’s basketball team was one of four schools — Washington, Stanford and Arizona State were the others — atop the Pac-12 with a score of 1,000 over the past year.
