TUCSON, Ariz. - University of Arizona cornerback Michael Jolivette, one of the most experienced players on the Wildcat defense, will notmake the Arizona football team's trip to Madison, Wis., for the Wildcats'game Saturday against the Badgers.

Jolivette, a 5-foot-10, 180-pound junior from Houston, Texas, injured his left knee in practice Wednesday, and head coach Johnmackovic said a magnetic resonance scan is necessary to determine theextent of an apparent injury to his medial collateral ligament
