Saturday Night will feature quite a few great matchups, and Arizona vs. Utah is definitely not one to ignore, as the Wildcats need a win in Pac-12 play to gain some momentum while the Utes need to bounce back after a tough loss to the California Golden Bears.
The matchup has favored Utah from the get-go but Arizona is priming to pull off the second upset at Utah in two weeks.
Can the Utes survive another scare from Arizona and push forward in the Pac-12 South or will the Wildcats notch their first Pac-12 win of the year?
We’ll find out Saturday night.
Rich Rodriguez may be in hot water if things keep going the way they are for Arizona, as his squad has yet to really make that impact mark in the Pac-12.
Despite appearing in the Pac-12 Championship Game not too long ago, the Wildcats have had a tough go of it of late and have not looked promising in 2016.
A close loss to Washington may have given the Wildcats hope they would be competitive in the Pac-12, but then a matchup against UCLA put them right to bed as they were trounced to the tune of a 45-24 scoreline.
If the Wildcats are to pull the upset on Saturday they’ll need to find an answer in the running game as Brandon Dawkins (if he is healthy) will be nursing an injury while backup Anu Solomon is also hampered.
The Utes jumped out to a 4-0 record against so-so teams and then lost a heartbreaker to Cal at home.
They have also lost four-straight to the Wildcats and hope to break the streak on Saturday night. Defensively they once again dominate and Sac City is still in full force come Saturday’s in the fall.
Troy Williams has been serviceable as a QB and Utah’s RB tandem of Zack Moss and Armand Shyne have been productive as well.
The biggest key for Utah in this game is forcing the Wildcats to win the game through the air.
If they are able to stuff the running game early on expect them to rack up quite a few sacks as Arizona will need to resort to their passing attack.

Free Week 6 NCAA Football Prediction
Arizona isn’t a bad team but they also aren’t a great team.
Conversely, Utah has yet to prove they are among the elite in 2016 but are above-average.
With them looking to avenge a loss at home after last week expect the Utes to come out in full force and use their tenacious defense to get after the Wildcats and whichever QB makes the start.
Utah wins this one to improve to 5-1.

The biggest difference in this one will be Utah’s defense. They are absolutely spectacular and will take advantage of Arizona’s so-so offense en route to a big win at home.
