Arizona vs. Washington Live TV Coverage: FOX
If you go back and look at the recent history between these two teams, you see a heck of a lot of yards and a heck of a lot of points. Arizona has scored at least 31 in six straight meetings between these two, and the Huskies have dropped 42, 36, and 41 in the last meetings that have been played here in Seattle. Many assume that all of that is going to keep up, but we aren’t all that sure that it is going to happen in this one, especially for the Wildcats. Arizona hasn’t played all that much of a schedule this year, and no one, even in Tucson is really a believer that QB BJ Denker has the ability to lead this team to 10 wins this season with a chance to get to the Pac-12 Championship Game and subsequently the Rose Bowl. This offense will only go as far as RB Ka’Deem Carey takes it, and though that could be a long way, it’s going to be tougher sledding against a massive defensive line for U-Dub.
We don’t totally trust that QB Keith Price is going to be able to keep up completing 77% of his passes like he is right now, and we don’t trust that this team is anywhere near as good as its 3-0 mark suggests either. The win against Boise State at home was nice, but remember that this is already a two-loss Broncos outfit at this point. Washington is going to have to win this game on its defense, and it has allowed just 10.0 points per game thus far on the season. We think that the Huskies will hold the Cats in the 20s, and if that turns out to be the case, we have a lot more confidence in the fact that this game will stay beneath the ‘total’ than either side covering the spread.
