After dismantling the UCLA Bruins last week, the Arizona Wildcats have momentum on their side as they prepare for the Washington Huskies. The 'Cats will be traveling to Seattle this weekend and are facing a UW team that just allowed 65 points to Andrew Luck and the Stanford Cardinal.
Arizona opens as an eight-point underdog against the Huskies, according to Odds Shark. This is a fairly generous number for UA, especially with half of their defense out due to either injury or suspension.
Despite the rough loss last weekend, the Huskies are a very talented team and enter the game at 5-2 on the season, including a 3-1 record in Pac-12 play. UW will be hungry to get their season back on track and that begins with winning at home against a lesser opponent.
For Arizona, it's all about building off their last victory. A nice balance between the passing and rushing attack was established early and the defensive line got pressure on the opposing quarterback for the first time in weeks. If Arizona is able to move the ball efficiently, as well as avoid the big plays on defense, they have a chance to win their second straight conference game on Saturday.
