â€œI think he can kick it deep enough it will not be a concern,â€ he said.
Arizona quarterback Nick Foles is a native of Texas. The junior from Austin (Texas) Westlake played in the Alamodome three times as a high school senior.
â€œIt's an exciting place to play and I'm excited,â€ Foles said. â€œI never really thought I would be back to play in college, but I'm excited to be back in San Antonio and play in front of my home crowd.â€
Foles attended Michigan State for one season before transferring to Arizona and joining the Wildcat roster in the fall of 2008.
HOPING FOR A HEALTHY GRISBY
Arizona is hoping senior running back Nic Grigsby will be healthy and productive in the Alamo Bowl. Grigsby, who rushed for 1,153 yards as a sophomore, was limited to four carries for seven yards in the Wildcats' 30-29 loss to Arizona State on Dec. 2.
â€œNic Grigsby should be back healthy,â€ UA coach Mike Stoops said. â€œHopefully he is as explosive as he was early in the season because he gives us another weapon in the backfield.â€
Grigsby has been battling a high ankle sprain since suffering the injury on Oct. 30 against UCLA. He has 102 carries for 474 yards and eight touchdowns this season.
