The Washington Huskies and Arizona Wildcats meet Saturday in college football action at Arizona Stadium.
The Washington Huskies need a nice road win after winning three of their last four games. The Washington Huskies have split their last six road games. Jacob Eason is completing 65.7 percent of his passes for 1,474 yards, 11 touchdowns and three interceptions. Eason has one or less touchdown passes in three of his last six games. Aaron Fuller and Hunter Bryant have combined for 840 receiving yards and five touchdowns while Andre Baccellia has 19 receptions. The Washington Huskies ground game is averaging 182.3 yards per contest, and Salvon Ahmed leads the way with 452 yards and three touchdowns. Defensively, Washington is allowing 18.3 points and 364.2 yards per game. Myles Bryant leads the Washington Huskies with 39 tackles, Benning Potoa'e has three sacks and Cameron Williams has three interceptions.
The Arizona Wildcats look for another victory to build on their four-game winning streak. The Arizona Wildcats have won six of their last seven home games. Khalil Tate is completing 67.5 percent of his passes for 1,088 yards, nine touchdowns and five interceptions. Tate has three or more touchdown passes in each of his last five games. Tayvian Cunningham and Jamarye Joiner have combined for 440 receiving yards and three touchdowns while Cedric Peterson has 11 receptions. The Arizona Wildcats ground game is averaging 221 yards per contest, and Gary Brightwell leads the way with 286 yards and four touchdowns. Defensively, Arizona is allowing 29.4 points and 477.8 yards per game. Colin Schooler leads the Arizona Wildcats with 40 tackles, Jalen Harris has 2.5 sacks and Jace Whittaker has three interceptions.
The Huskies are 21-51-2 ATS in their last 74 games in October, 3-9 ATS in their last 12 conference games and 3-9 ATS in their last 12 road games. The Wildcats are 5-1-1 ATS in their last 7 conference games, 5-1-1 ATS in their last 7 home games and 5-2 ATS vs. a team with a winning record. The Huskies are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 meetings in Arizona and the favorite is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 meetings. The over is 6-2 in Wildcats last 8 games overall. The under is 14-6 in Huskies last 20 games overall.
The Washington Huskies have failed to cover six of their last eight games as a road favorite. The Arizona Wildcats have covered five of their last six games as a home underdog. Washington is coming off a really poor performance last week against Stanford, and now they have to go on the road to play a red hot Arizona side. The Arizona Wildcats re starting to roll offensively and are coming off a nice win over Colorado, which is a tough place to play no matter how good the roster is. Under the lights and riding a four-game winning streak, this feels like a game Arizona could win outright. I'm taking the points.
