Arizona has some momentum as it heads into the Rich Rodriguez Era.

With their new coach on hand, the Wildcats overcame a Louisiana-Lafayette team to win 45-37, thereby ending the season with a modest two-game winning streak.

The Wildcats finish 4-8 overall.

Arizona fans also got vintage performances from quarterback Nick Foles and wide receiver Juron Criner.

Foles, who has re-written the Wildcats record book, completed 33-of-43 for 352 yards with three touchdowns and an interception, overcoming a rib injury that looked like it might knock him out of the game early in the week. Criner, his favorite target, caught nine passes for 129 yards and two scores.

Both will be gone when Rodriguez steps in, but it's fair to say that they helped get things started in a positive way for their program's new coach.
