On Saturday afternoon, the #15 Arizona Wildcats (8-2) will try to win their third game in a row when they face the #20 Utah Utes (7-3). In 2013, Arizona beat the Utes 35-24 at home.
Arizona made a last-second field goal to avoid upset and beat Washington 27-26. The main reasons why they lost that game is because they turned the ball over three times and allowed Washington's offense to gain 504 yards against them.
Through 10 games, the Wildcats are one of the best passing teams in the nation by throwing for 306.7 yards per game. Quarterback Anu Solomon has had an impressive season this year by throwing for 3,058 yards with 25 touchdowns and only seven interceptions. Running back Nick Wilson has averaged 5.4 yards per carry and has 867 yards with nine touchdown runs.
It took a while, but Utah came away with a 20-17 double-overtime win over Stanford last Saturday. They won that game despite only being able to gain 247 offensive yards, including just 70 yards on the ground.
The Utes have scored 31.4 points per game this year while only giving up 23.8 points per game to their opponents. Quarterback Travis Wilson has led the offense by throwing for 1,558 yards with 13 touchdowns and just two interceptions. Junior running back Devontae Booker has rushed for 1,113 yards this season with eight touchdowns.
