Arizona Vs Washington 🏈 game discussion thread 10/12/19 at 8pm on FS1
Our Arizona Wildcats are the hottest team in the Pac-12 right now, having won four straight games. Khalil Tate returned last weekend at Colorado, and Tate delivered with one of his best ever passing games completing 31-41 passes for 404 yards and three touchdowns. He led the Wildcats to a 35-30 victory against Colorado on their home turf.
Arizona ranks seventh nationally in total offense at 539.2 yards per game. The Wildcats like to distribute the wealth offensively, with five players tallying rushing touchdowns and nine with receiving scores. Junior receiver Brian Casteel recorded seven receptions for 74 yards including a touchdown against Colorado. Arizona's senior running back J.J. Taylor earned just one carry after missing the prior game to injury. His health is questionable heading into Saturday.
The Washington Huskies have seen their playoff hopes dashed and their nationally ranking disappear in recent weeks thanks to losses to Cal and Stanford. Now UW looks to stay competitive in the Pac-12 North standings with a win over South foe Arizona. Washington will need a much better outing from its offense than the 294 yards they put up against Stanford.
Quarterback Jacon Eason, a transfer from Georgia, looked subpar against the Cardinal, completing just 16-36 passes with one touchdown and one interception. His receiving core didn't help him out much, either. Aaron Fuller was the only Huskies receiver with more than one catch. Fuller is a great weapon, sure, but Eason needs more consistent targets. Washington also may have taken a hit to its rushing game when freshman back Richard Newton left in the third quarter with a foot injury. Newton leads the team with six rushing touchdowns. Junior running back Salvon Ahmed was held to 28 yards on six carries against the Cardinal.
Washington opened as a -9.5 favorite and the line has now dropped to -6.
Let's talk about how you think the CATS will do this weekend.
