Our Arizona Wildcats Top 50 Football Games ranking is shown as a slideshow starting at No. 50 (click on “next” at the upper or lower right to get started) …
Every day we will have data related to the number of days remaining to kickoff — Texas-San Antonio vs. Arizona — on Sept. 3 at Arizona Stadium. That game is only 16 days away.
— Anthony Gimino compiled Arizona’s best player by jersey number while with TucsonCitizen.com three years ago. The best No. 16 according to Gimino is Dan White, who has the Fiesta Bowl victory over Miami and was superb in three consecutive wins over ASU. Some might argue Ortege Jenkins for his “Leap by the Lake” flip into the endzone for the winning play at Washington in 1998.
Dan White was 3-0 vs. ASU in his Arizona career after transferring from Penn State
For the third straight year, AllSportsTucson.com presents the Arizona Wildcats’ Top 50 games in the program’s history.
The ranking corresponds to the number of days left to the opening kickoff for the Arizona Wildcats against Texas-San Antonio on Sept. 3 at Arizona Stadium. We are only 16 days from the start of the 2015 football season.
The ranking each year is based on new research and judgments for all games, not just those from last season. This year, four new games join the ranking, including one played more than 50 years ago that — upon further review — deserves Top 50 status. That game was presented at No. 38. The No. 1-ranked game last year may not be the No. 1 this year.

Ortege Jenkins is mostly remembered for his “Leap by the Lake” in the victory at Washington in 1998 but he was a capable quarterback overall.
— No. 16 for Arizona this year is freshman receiver Shun Brown of Shreveport, La. Brown reportedly has looked impressive so far in fall camp and will probably play as a true freshman.
