The Washington Huskies and Arizona Wildcats square off Saturday in a week 7 Pac-12 college football game from Alaska Airlines Field at Husky Stadium.

The Arizona Wildcats will try to get back above .500 after alternating wins and losses in each of their last 6 games after a 49-22 loss to Oregon to sit at 3-3 on the year. Jayden de Laura has thrown for 1,874 yards, 15 touchdowns and 7 interceptions on 61.8% passing while Michael Wiley has a team-high 297 rushing yards and 3 touchdowns. DJ Williams and Jonah Coleman each have 200+ rushing yards while Jacob Cowing leads Arizona’s receivers with 46 catches for 643 yards and 7 touchdowns. Dorian singer has 35 grabs for 506 receiving yards while Tetairoa McMillan has 338 receiving yards and 4 touchdowns this season. On defense, Jerry Roberts has a team-high 46 total tackles while Hunter Echols has a team-high 3.5 sacks.

The Washington Huskies will look to rebound from back-to-back losses, sitting at 4-2 on the year after a 45-38 loss to Arizona State as 13.5-point underdogs last time out. Michael Penix Jr. has thrown for 2,044 yards, 16 touchdowns and 4 interceptions on 64.8% passing while Wayne Taulapapa has a team-high 406 rushing yards with 4 TDs and Cameron Davis has a team-high 7 rushing touchdowns. Rome Odunze has a team-high 35 grabs for 524 yards and 4 touchdowns while Jalen McMillan has 31 grabs for 453 yards with 4 scores and Ja’Lynn Polk also has 4 TDs as well this season. On defense, Alex Cook has a team-high 41 total tackles including 29 solo tackles while Bralen Trice has a team-high 4.5 sacks and Washington’s defense as a whole has combined for 16 sacks and 6 interceptions so far this season.

Arizona is 9-25 ATS in their last 34 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games against a team with a winning record while the over is 4-1-1 in their last 6 conference games. Washington is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 conference games while the over is 7-0 in their last 7 games overall.

I get the case to be made for Washington at home as they’ve done a good job covering the number. However, this is a big number to be giving up with an Arizona team that’s capable of scoring in bunches as we’ve seen already this season, scoring 31 or more in four of their six games. The Wildcats did struggle in step up spots against Oregon and Mississippi State, but Washington’s defense has been shaky as of late and I think Arizona’s fully capable of keeping this one inside of a pair of touchdowns. Give me Arizona and the points in this one.
