The Arizona Wildcats will be trying to bounce back from their season-opening loss when they face the Washington Huskies on Saturday night. The Huskies are coming off a 27-21 win over Oregon State as 13.5-point underdogs. The Wildcats are coming off a 34-30 loss to USC as 15-point underdogs.

Washington is 6-4 in its last 10 games against Arizona.

 

Wildcats Trying To Snap Three-Game Losing Streak to Huskies

The Wildcats have been on the losing end against the Huskies in recent games and have lost their last three games against their opponents. They will try to snap their losing streak and pick up their first win of the season when they face the Huskies on Saturday.

 

Arizona’s first game of the season was canceled because of the coronavirus, but they looked good offensively against USC in their last game, scoring 30 points in the losing effort.

Grant Gunnell completed 66.7 percent of his passes for 286 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception. He also added 40 yards on the ground. Gary Brightwell led the Wildcats on the ground, finishing with 112 yards, while Tayvian Cunningham added 110 receiving yards and one touchdown on five catches.

Defensively, the Wildcats didn’t play well, giving up 34 points to the Trojans. Since it was their first game, it’s difficult to gauge how good or bad they are, but they will need a better performance if they want to beat the Huskies.

 

Huskies Going For Second Consecutive Win

The Huskies were 13.5 point favorites against Oregon State in their last game, but they barely escaped with a 27-20 win. Despite the close call, they will go into this game with a lot of confidence because they have defeated the Wildcats three times in a row and four times in their last five meetings.

 

Like the Wildcats, the Huskies had their first game of the season canceled because of the coronavirus, so it’s too early to determine how good they are based on one game.

Freshman quarterback Dylan Morris didn’t have to do much because the Huskies dominated the Beavers on the ground, finishing with 267 yards and three touchdowns on 51 carries.

Morris completed 58.3 percent of his passes for 141 yards. Sean McGrew led the team with 91 yards and one touchdown, while Terrell Bynum led the team with 66 receiving yards.

Defensively, the Huskies gave up 21 points in their last game. They did a great job against the pass, holding the Beavers to 84 yards and one interception, and gave up 167 yards and two touchdowns on the ground. They will need a similar effort if they want to get the win.
