Future looks bright for Wildcats

There is no way to overstate it: freshman quarterback Willie Tuitama has changed everything for Arizona.

The 52-14 victory over then-seventh-ranked UCLA already is being compared to a 23-20 win over Nebraska in the 1998 Holiday Bowl, which Wildcats fans rank as their last landmark conquest.

Arizona dominated on both sides of the ball, with Tuitama's presence seeming to energize not only a previously dormant passing game -- four touchdowns, no interceptions -- but also the running game and defense.
