Football beat writer David Skinner and Rob Kleifield give their thoughts on some of the most notable topics surrounding Arizona football as the regular season comes to an end in two weeks.
Arizona football defeated Colorado 42-34 on Friday to win its second consecutive game and fifth game of the year. Here are the top moments that determined the outcome.
Arizona is no longer a one-man wrecking crew, and it’s definitely for the best. Taylor ranks third in the FBS, averaging 175.44 all-purpose yards per game. He’ll largely be counted on as Arizona’s primary back, again, this week after fellow ball carrier Gary Brightwell suffered an ankle injury in the onslaught of the Ducks.
There must have been something in the air on Saturday night. Football head coach Kevin Sumlin’s team put together its most efficient game of the year, upsetting the No. 19-ranked Oregon Ducks in blowout fashion, 44-15.
As it currently stands, Arizona’s chances to become bowl eligible are slim to none, but that’s exactly why they shouldn’t be counted out of any of the remaining four games. College football has proven time and time again that there is nothing more dangerous than a team with little to lose.
Arizona doesn’t necessarily have the strongest track record of producing draft picks, but there is still a pride of Wildcats in the pros.
Rodriguez’s final stat line – 15 of 34 for 231 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions – is a sign that there’s plenty of room for improvement. But for now, Rodriguez can just soak in the moment.
It’s easy to look back and suggest Arizona should have executed a more effective passing play deep in UCLA territory with the game on the line, but that’s not necessarily fair. Assuming that the Wildcats would have scored a touchdown had they converted on that crucial third down isn’t given either.
Rhett Rodriguez is a coach’s son, first and foremost. But there’s more to the sophomore quarterback than meets the eye.
Utah defended its home turf with ease on Friday night, defeating the Arizona Wildcats 42-10.
Sitting at 3-3 after garnering a pair of blowout victories against under qualified teams, and clinching its first convincing win of sorts on the back of a defensive coming out party versus Cal this past weekend, the Wildcats may finally have some momentum.
In a game that saw Cal quarterback Brandon McIlwain stay entrenched in the starting lineup for all four quarters for the first time this season, there were also several other unanticipated factors that ultimately led to Arizona’s 24-17 win. Here are the five most defining moments of tonight’s game:
ANALYSIS: Whether or not Arizona ever lives up to the offseason hype remains to be seen, but one thing is for certain – the Wildcats won’t reach their potential until they get back to their running ways.
The bond between student-athletes and family is sacred for more reasons than one.
The Trojans did more than challenge the Wildcats tonight For a while, USC dominated Arizona.
The Wildcats should enter this game with momentum, as USC has experienced similar bouts of early season struggles, but they’ll need to give maximum effort for all four quarters in order to prevail in this one.
The defense might finally be trending upward after all, and now so are the Wildcats.
Increased time of possession, and stout play on the opposite side of the ball won’t come automatically though. Arizona must succeed in other areas in order to improve their craft, both offensively and defensively.
