Based on this article, Arizona’s offensive line looks like it could be seriously hampered by injuries. If they end up playing with an inexperienced group, our guys could have another big night. Also, their QB situation does not appear to be settled. I had not realized that Tate’s backup started against Oregon (I did not watch that game).
On the other hand, RB J.J. Taylor is looking to declare for the draft, so this will likely be his last home game. He will be looking to put up big numbers.
Whit commented at this week’s press conference that Arizona’s defense had not been as productive as they might have wanted. This article sums up that situation. Here’s a quote I found interesting: “The Wildcats are also worst in the league in allowing long scrimmage plays, giving up 170 that have gone at least 10 yards, 59 of 20 or more yards and 30 of 30-plus yards. Those figures are all in the bottom 12 nationally.” Huntley and company ought to have a big night.
