Washington vs Arizona Game Preview


Why Washington Will Win

Arizona’s offense can’t find the right mix.

The defense isn’t all that great, but that’s not really the problem. The Wildcats can’t seem to stop giving the ball away with 12 turnovers in the last four games.

The quarterback situation hasn’t been settled – Jordan McCloud threw too many picks against Oregon, and Gunner Cruz isn’t generating anything down the field – and they’re both out for the year. There isn’t enough of a running game to take the heat off.

There wasn’t any offense happening, the Wildcats were playing reasonably well in close games – to a point – and …

Colorado 34, Arizona 0.

Washington doesn’t have an offense, and it’s not going to roll easily, but it’ll methodically get just enough to overcome a good start from an Arizona offense that’s desperately looking for a little luck.

The Wildcat passing game won’t be able to come through in the second half against this UW secondary.
