Arizona vs. Clemson preview, game time, TV info and more

Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

The Wildcats look to protect their perfect record in what figures to be their toughest challenge yet.

The Arizona Wildcats cruised through their first five games against mediocre competition. Earlier this week, they faced a scrappy Southern Miss team and were nearly upset at home. It was a loud wakeup call for the 'Cats, and one they probably needed.

On Saturday night, Arizona will face their toughest challenge yet when they head to Littlejohn Coliseum to take on the Clemson Tigers.

Clemson is 5-2 on the year and was picked to finish in the middle of the ACC. Unlike the Wildcats, the Tigers like to slow things down on offense. They are led by senior forward Devin Booker, who averages nearly 12 points and eight rebounds a night. Sophomore wing K.J. McDaniels and senior forward Milton Jennings are the two other players averaging double-digit points for Clemson, and they could give UA's inexperienced front line some issues. After missing the past two games, Jennings will reportedly play on Saturday.

Arizona enters as a 4.5-point favorite. They have the talent to make this a blowout, although recent turnover concerns could doom the 'Cats in a hostile road environment. There is also the concern of UA looking past the Tigers with a key Florida game on the horizon. This being said, it's tough to imagine coach Sean Miller letting his team fall short. Arizona pulls away late and wins 67-59.
