Venue: Sun Bowl, El Paso, TX
Alright, Arizona. If you can’t handle this one, then it really is time to start over.
As bad as things have been for the Wildcats, life is far worse for a UTEP program that just got waxed by Rice. The Miners are struggling to get anything going offensively, but one win over a struggling Arizona team might change the entire program – at least that’s the dream.
The Wildcats kick off the Pac-12 season with another Friday night game against Utah up next. They need to win this one in ease just to see if it’s possible to get the machine rolling.
One Reason Why UTEP Will Win
The Arizona offense continues to struggle to put the biscuit in the basket.
There were several chances against Houston to come up with key touchdowns and take control of the game, but the O settled for three field goals and suffered a tough loss.

One Reason Why Arizona Will Win
The Miners is really, really struggling.
The passing game is bad, the running game worse, and there’s no production coming thanks to a line that isn’t giving the skill guys a chance. Ryan Metz threw for 203 yards in the 31-14 loss, but the ground game as held to 26 yards because the front five couldn’t keep the Owls from making big things happen behind the line.
Arizona, if this running game thing is going to work, this will be the week. The Owls tore off over six yards per carry with 306 yards and three scores in the win.
What’s Going To Happen
Finally, Arizona is going to have a little fun.
UTEP will come up a few scores to give the home crowd a few moments – it’s Arizona, and it’s Arizona’s defense – but the Wildcat offense will go off. The running game will rip off big play after big play in an exhale-inducing win.
