After struggling at home in Week 1, the #20 Wildcats hit the road to take on the Nevada Wolf Pack Saturday night.
Arizona saw a lot of flaws within their defensive scheme and thing won’t get any easier for them as they will be without their top linebacker Scooby Wright.
For Nevada, they welcomed in a new QB to start their 2015 campaign and Junior Tyler Stewart looked solid in the opener.
Kickoff is set for under the lights at 7:00 PM in Nevada.
The Wildcats showed some definite signs of struggles as they knocked off Texas- San Antonio 42-32 in the season opener.
Offensively, the Wildcats had no problem moving ball. RB Nick Williams had 97 yards on 22 carries.
QB Anu Soloman finished 22 of 36 on the day for 229 yards and 4 touchdowns. Soloman could have easily added a couple more completions and even touchdowns to his stats, but he severely over threw his receivers a couple times down field.
Defensively is where the Arizona Wildcats struggled. They allowed 32 points to a weak Texas- San Antonio team who was returning just 2 offensive starters on the year. UTSA racked up 525 yards to go along with 29 first downs.
LB Scooby Wright is expected to miss 3-4 weeks following his surgery which will already make a weak Arizona defense much weaker.
The Wolf Pack were very nervous about their QB situation coming into this season. QB Cody Fajardo graduated following the 2014 season which gave the call to Junior QB Tyler Stewart.
Stewart had a solid debut as he threw for 13 of 20 for 163 yards to go along with a touchdown. Stewart also showed off his running abilities as he rushed for 43 yards on 9 carries.
Sophomore RB Don Jackson also had a solid debut as he went for 124 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
Nevada will likely try to really push RB Don Jackson and the Wolf Pack run game here on Saturday as they want to keep the ball out of the hands of Soloman and Wright for Arizona offensively.
