The Arizona Wildcats are hoping to keep their two game winning streak alive as they head up to Berkeley to take on the Golden Bears.
It is still a surprise today, but the Golden Bears are looking to keep the momentum going after their upset win against Washington State.
The Arizona Wildcats are looking to keep their impressive Pac-12 conference play going as they are riding a two game winning streak which saw UCLA and Colorado leaving the field with their heads down.
In their 47-30 win against the Bruins, Arizona unleashed their potent running attack that was able to jump all over the weak defense of UCLA. With an early 30-14 lead in the first half, it was over for UCLA.
Arizona’s quick running attack along with the rest of the offense managed to drop 605 total yards on the Bruins as they were led by dual threat quarterback Khalil Tate
Tate finished the night with 148 passing yards and a touchdown, but also ran the ball for 230 rushing yards and another two touchdowns. The dual threat offense was hard to stop for UCLA for sure.
On the flip side, the Wildcats defense were able to keep the Bruins from the potential comeback as they forced UCLA to turn the ball over four times.
California Golden Bears
The California Golden Bears opened up their Pac-12 conference play with dropping three straight games to USC, Oregon and Washington and with Washington State coming to town, it seemed over.
However, the Golden Bears were able to do the impossible and knock off ranked Washington State to get their fourth win of the season and first in Pac-12 play.
The Golden Bears upset victory can be thank by their defense as they intercepted quarterback Luke Falk five times with also sacking the veteran player nine times with recovering two fumbles.
With the defense leading the way for Cal and giving them excellent field position, quarterback Ross Bowers was able to give the Bears more than enough to secure the win with his 259 passing yards and one touchdown.
