Arizona's football team pulled out an improbable victory in the New Mexico Bowl on Saturday. The basketball team made it a daily double by doing the same thing to Florida later that night.
Mark Lyons hit a contested layup with 7 seconds left and the eighth-ranked Wildcats rallied from a six-point deficit in the final 56 seconds for a 65-64 victory over No. 5 Florida that capped a wild day in Arizona athletics.
''It's a great day for us,'' senior forward Solomon Hill said. ''Both teams looked ugly at times, we both made our share of bad plays, but we kept staying in there and fighting.''
The football team got things started by scoring two touchdowns in the final 46 seconds to beat Nevada 49-48 in rainy Albuquerque.
The basketball team looked as though it had no shot of adding to the occasion, struggling against Florida's mix of zone and man defenses to fall behind by 11 points in the second half.
