Exhibiting a real offensive power Arizona, by a combination running and passing attack, defeated the University of New Mcxio Lobos 14 to 6, and thus avenged last season 7 to 0 defeat. The Lobos famous passing attack failed to materialize while Arizona countered with many completed passes from Bland to Wharford. Piacs, New Mexico’s ambidextrous quarterback, proved himself dangerous, but was too closely watched to do much damage. Bergman and Nolan starred on the Arizona line while Henderson and Knox played well in the backficld,
With the Wildcats combined attacks functioning smoothly, the Goldbugs of Oklahoma City University bowed to a 26 to 6 defeat from the hands of the “Desert Men.” This was one of Arizona’s most successful invasions of the year and gave good proof oi the powerful offense developed as the season advanced.
The Tempe State Bulldogs failed to give the expected opposition and were trampled beneath a 32 to 6 score by the Wildcats.
In a game marred by many penalities and individual fights, the inspired Arizona eleven practically fought the surprised Matadors of Texas Tech to a standstill. However,

in three | crfcctly executed plays. However the Wildcats, far from defeated, came back in the second half to score two touchdowns. Ted Bland and Andy Rogers lead the offense while Cochran, Mullen, and Crogan played heads-up defensive ball.
Meeting their first defeat of the season, a fighting Wildcat eleven was handed a 6 to 0 defeat by the Loyola Lions from Los Angeles before a Homecoming crowd of nearly ten thousand people. Both teams played a brand of ball which has seldom been seen on the Arizona gridiron. The game was pri marily a duel between Arizona’s dynamic Ted Bland and the Lion’s Jack Byrne, considered one of the best backs on the Pacific Coast.
Coming from the Loyola game with many injuries, the Wildcats offered little rcsiscancc to the underrated New Mexico Aggies. The Brcsenham brothers and A. Apodoco broke through Arizona’s defense to stop many of the running plays, while I c and Sanoglc of the Aggies backficld intercepted or broke up all of the Wildcat passes. However, the Arizona line, staring George Beeler, prevented the Aggies from gaining much gound. The game ended with the score tied 0 to 0.

by the combined playing class of Priddy and Martin on the line and Clark and Dowell in the backficld, the boys from Lubbock finally eked out a 13 to 7 victory. Warford scored Arizona’s single tally by intercepting a Matador fumble and running 52 years to the goal line.
In a post season game played at Phoenix the Wildcats met their fourth California opponent, College of the Pacific. The Pacific Tigers, coached by the famous Amos Alonzo Stagg, had bowed in defeat to the University of California by the close score of 7 to 6. Rated as one of the classiest team on the coast, the Tigers entered the Arizona game 3 to 1 favorites. The Wildcats, playing the greatest game of football ever seen in the Phoenix stadium, smashed and humbled the Tigers under an avalanche of touchdowns which ended with the score 31 to 7. The Tigers with the ball on Arizona’s 4Yi yard line in the second quarter, gained only 4 yards in four plays. Thus the whole squad, line and backficld, showed their power as a unit and gave this game as as climaxing tribute to the superb coaching of Tex Oliver.
