The Arizona Wildcats could use a win here to snap a two-game losing skid. Jerrard Randall is completing 44.7 percent of his passes for 236 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. Anu Solomon is questionable with a concussion. Cayleb Jones and David Richards have combined for 486 receiving yards and five touchdowns while Johnny Jackson has 19 receptions. The Arizona Wildcats ground game is averaging 286.8 yards per contest, and Nick Wilson leads the way with 616 yards and six touchdowns. Defensively, Arizona is allowing 35.2 points and 453 yards per game. Will Parks leads the Wildcats with 36 tackles, Tellas Jones has 1.5 sacks and Jarvis McCall Jr. has two pass deflections. Derrick Turituri, Kwesi Mashack and Orlando Bradford are questionable.
The Beavers are 43-18-1 ATS in their last 62 games in October and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Wildcats are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games in October and 2-8 ATS in their last 10 home games. Beavers are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 meetings in Arizona and 12-2 ATS in their last 14 meetings overall.
Oregon State has eaten Arizona in six of the last seven meetings. I also don't trust Arizona without Solomon at quarterback, as Randall can't hit water if he fell out of a boat. Assuming the WIldcats are still without their starting quarterback, I'm going to side with the points and a decent OSU team.
