TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - After leading the University of Arizona Wildcat football team to a bowl victory in his first season as coach, Rich Rodriguez's team also scored a big win in the classroom.
According to the NCAA Academic Progress Rate, this year the Wildcats had the best graduation rate in the PAC-12.
