The Arizona Wildcats obviously have the better team and are more than capable of blowing the doors off. However, Southern gave TCU a somewhat competitive game and beat UNLV on the road. Also, this could be a letdown spot for Arizona after just playing Duke on Friday. Just how motivated or focused will this Arizona team after a massive matchup? I’m certain the Southern Jaguars will be the more upbeat team for this matchup. I’ll take a shot with the boatload of free buckets.
