The UA, at 6-4, is bowl eligible with games remaining against powerhouse Oregon and rival Arizona State. These days, however, six wins doesn’t guarantee an extra game. The Pac-12 has affiliations with seven bowls, but could have as many as 10 teams eligible. If that happens, Arizona would likely be shipped to a bowl unaffiliated with the conference; that would only happen if other conferences can’t fill their quota. Winning at least one of its remaining games could help Arizona's chances of landing in the Las Vegas, Fight Hunger, Sun or New Mexico bowls.

Rich Rodriguez can’t help himself.
