We are in mid season form for college football and we have an out of conference game on ESPN this Friday in El Paso Texas. Both Arizona and UTEP are both coming off losses with poor offensive showings this last weekend.
Arizona only scored 16 points last weekend and struggled but do not let this fool you as they will put up good numbers this Friday. This UTEP team is lacking in talent against a good PAC 12 school.
Arizona has become a really run heavy offense over the years with Rich Rod at the helm for the Wildcats. Going against his usual multiple offense the passing game tends to fade away and the offensive line takes over the games.
The Wildcats average 349 yards rushing a game and do not look to slow down in El Paso. Although the team is great on the ground they have really struggled putting points on the board and scoring in the end zone.
Brandon Dawkins is under center for the Wilcats but has not been healthy and is probably to go on Friday. If he does not play then the Wildcats are truly going to be a one dimensional so UTEP will have a shot at them.
UTEP reminds me a lot of the Wildcat offense as well being very one dimensional but on the other side of the ball. This team tries very hard to be a balanced offense but truly struggles on offense.
This Minor team is averaging just 198 yards per game on offense which is good for one of the worst in the nation. As bad as their offense is you would think that their defense would pick them up but they are also giving up more than 500 yards a game on defense.
The UTEP team is a truly a bend but don’t break method as they give up so many yards and struggle to get off the field on defense. But, with all of the injuries for the Wildcats they might surprise people.

I believe that the UTEP defense is really going to still struggle on Friday night even at home. Arizona should not have a problem scoring points and the only reason the line is even this low is because the injuries for the Wildcats.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Arizona -20
Arizona is going to put up a bunch of points in this game and truly are one of those teams that could make some noise in the PAC 12 South. With all of the injuries it is just a matter of time before everyone is healthy and they are full go.
The only shot to cover for the Minors is if they can get some offense going and are able to successfully run the ball. The struggles on the offense stem from a really bad offensive line so this one could get only quick.
