The Arizona Wildcats look to remain undefeated and get their first win over a ranked team. Anu Solomon is completing 68.3 percent of his passes for 778 yards, 10 touchdowns and zero interceptions. Solomon has 11 touchdown passes in his last four games. David Richards and Cayleb Jones have combined for 375 receiving yards and four touchdowns while Johnny Jackson has 13 receptions. The Arizona Wildcats ground game is averaging 321 yards per contest, and Nick Wilson leads the way with 434 yards and five touchdowns. Defensively, Arizona is allowing 21.7 points and 399.3 yards per game. DaVonte' Neal leads the Wildcats with 20 tackles, Will Parks has four pass deflections and Anthony Lopez has an interception. Samajie Grant, DeAndre' Miller and Scooby Wright III are questionable.
This is possibly the biggest game for Arizona in quite some time, and the atmosphere is going to be nuts with College Gameday on the scene. Arizona can score with the best of them and UCLA is coming off a home match against BYU it probably should have lost. Also, the Bruins just lost the heart of their defense in Myles Jack, while the Wildcats could very well get Scooby Wright back on the field.
I think the wrong team is favored here, which is why I’m taking Arizona in an outright victory.
