Arizona and Colorado meet up for a Pac 12 clash Saturday night down in Boulder, Colorado.
Arizona put the breaks on a 2 game skid last week with a 44-7 route of Oregon State.
The Buffaloes will looking for their first Pac 12 win after dropping decisions to Oregon and Arizona State in their first two conference games.
QB Anu Soloman returned under center for Arizona last week and it couldn’t have come at a much more needed time. Soloman helped Arizona put the breaks on a 2 game losing streak as the Wildcats routed the Beavers 44-7 Saturday.
The win put Arizona at 4-2 on the season and keeps them right in the thick of things in terms of the crazy Pac 12 this season.
The Wildcats opened the 2015 season with a 3-0 start and looked very impressive doing so. However, losses to UCLA 56-30 and to Stanford, 55-17, put Arizona in some early danger in terms of the Pac 12.
They finally got their offense rolling again in last weeks win as they racked up 645 yards of total offense as Soloman showed off his dual threat ability. He threw for 276 yards and rumbled for 368 yards on the ground.
The run game was also impressive as Nick Wilson, Jared Baker, and Orlando Bradford all continue to impress. The trio, along with Soloman, as put together an offense that is averaging well above 500 yards per game and 42.3 points per game.
The Buffaloes put together a 3-1 start on the season, but losses to Oregon and Arizona State have set them back here to a .500 record.
Colorado is in a do or die kind of state here in terms of their Pac 12 Championship ambitions. With the way the Pac 12 has looked, it will more than likely be a 1 or 2 team loss winning the conference. With that, Colorado cannot afford to drop their 3rd conference game.
Things don’t bode well for them however as they’ve dropped 13 straight Pac 12 games dating back to 2013. Their last win came against California that year.
QB Sefo Liufau does come in off his best performance of the season, even though it was a losing effort, as he tossed for 389 yards and a touchdown against Arizona State.
The main problem has been finding consistency within the rush offense for Colorado. They ran for just 49 yards on 28 attempts against the ASU defense. They’ll need to improve that to keep the clock moving and keep Anu Soloman on the sidelines come Saturday.
