The Arizona Wildcats had a breakout season in 2014, winning 10 games for just the second time in program history. After losing in the Pac-12 Championship Game and the Fiesta Bowl, Rich Rodriguez will be looking to take the Wildcats to the next level in 2015. Here are five must-watch games on Arizona's schedule this coming season.

The Wildcats did not face Stanford last season, but the last time these two teams met, Stanford won 54-48 in overtime in Palo Alto. Despite an 8-5 record in 2014, the Cardinal are still a dangerous team with David Shaw on the sideline and Kevin Hogan under center.

When these two teams met last year in the Rose Bowl, UCLA's defense dominated throughout, holding the Wildcats to just seven points in a 17-7 loss. Arizona will definitely be looking for revenge, and this time, the Bruins travel to Tucson.

These teams met last season, but it was a one-sided affair as the Wildcats routed the Utes, 42-10, in Salt Lake City. The Utes and Kyle Whittingham will be ready for this year's game in Tucson.

USC ruined any chances that the Wildcats had for an undefeated season in 2014 with a 28-26 win in Tucson. The Wildcats trailed 28-13 heading into the fourth quarter, but the rally came up short. This year, these two teams meet in Los Angeles.

The biggest college football game in the state of Arizona is on the final week of the regular season when the Wildcats meet the Sun Devils for the Territorial Cup. The Wildcats defeated Arizona State last season 42-35, but the Sun Devils will look for payback, this time in Tempe.
