Cardinal Crossword: Misc. Mildcat Memories

We present another edition of our Cardinal Crossword puzzle series, this time covering the Stanford-Arizona football rivalry since it began back in 1979 when the Cardinal spoiled the Wildcats' 62nd Homecoming with a memorable 30-10 claw-clipping in Tucson. Admittedly, this puzzle will be fairly challenging, but so will beating Arizona on Saturday! Let's see what you've got! Bring your A-game!

With Stanford's Homecoming coming up on Saturday, we decided to put together another one of our infamously challenging "Cardinal Crossword" puzzles. This time out our theme is the Stanford-Arizona rivalry, which began way back in 1979, the year after The University of Arizona Wildcats and the Arizona State University Sun Devils joined the Pacific 8 Conference and to form today's Pac-10 Conference. 

Some fans may find this puzzle a bit difficult as it requires a breadth of knowledge and recollection bridging a period of nearly three decades. In other words, there are maybe a couple of dozen of you out there who are fanatic enough to be able to complete a puzzle like this without any hints ("Terry2" is one example and I have run this one by him in advance)

To begin, click on the following link and print it out.

We regret that today's "Miscellaneous Mildcat Memories" puzzle can't be completed online. Just give it the old college try and see how you do. You may find you remember more than you think you do!. 

The puzzle's solution can be found by clicking here: No peeking until you have given it your best shot!

Enjoy! Tame the Cats!

Note: The clue for "12 DOWN" should begin with the word "His" as in "His spectacular 71-yard run added to '01 victory in the desert"
