Arizona faces uphill battle in 2015

Arizona finished last season as a Top 20 team, and for the first time since 1998, the Wildcats won 10 games. In doing so, Arizona brought home a Pac-12 South title and made an appearance in the Pac-12 championship game and the Fiesta Bowl.

All in all, the Wildcats enjoyed much success last season despite a lackluster performance in the season finale. Nevertheless, it's safe to say Arizona will have a much tougher time accomplishing the same feat this season.

ESPN's Ted Miller previewed Arizona's 2015 season, and does an outstanding job breaking down what works and what doesn't work for the Wildcats. But first Miller tackles the schedule.

"Arizona’s noncon is pillow-soft again, but with road trips to Stanford, USC and ASU, a repeat South title will be an uphill battle," Miller writes.

Sure, a repeat of the Pac-12 South title won't be easy, but the same can be said about the other five teams teams. The Pac-12 South arguably is the toughest division in the nation. It'll be an uphill battle for just about every team.
