Arizona will travel to Rice-Eccles Stadium to take on the Utah Utes this Friday night.
The Wildcats improved to 3-3 (2-1 Pac-12) on the season after defeating the California Golden Bears, 24-17, this past Saturday. Arizona did a great job for forcing California into committing turnovers and was able to secure the victory after a 24-yard interception return by Scottie Young Jr. gave the Wildcats a 24-14 lead with 3:13 left in regulation. Arizona’s offense was outgained by a 476-265 margin, however, the Wildcats were able to pick up the needed victory largely thanks to their defense that forced California into committing 4 turnovers including two pick-6’s.
Utah snapped their 2-game losing streak and improved to 3-2 (1-2 Pac-12) on the season after a convincing 40-21 victory over the 14th ranked Stanford Cardinal this past Saturday. Utah burst out of the gates early in this one as they raced out to a 21-0 lead with 2:56 left in the 2nd quarter and although they did allow Stanford to make it a one possession game by the start of the 4th quarter, Utah pulled away by scoring 13 unanswered points to finish off the game. Utah was outgained by Stanford by a 423-421 margin however, won the turnover battle by a 4-0 margin. Leading the way for the Utes was RB Zach Moss who had 160 rushing yards and 2 TD’s on 20 carries.
Utah is going to be a tough match-up for Arizona as they have the 18th ranked scoring defense. The Wildcats are going to have to be able to put points on the board in order to have a chance. Utah is currently a -14 points favorite.
