The Arizona Wildcats are 7.5-point favorites in their Pac-12 clash with the Washington Huskies on Saturday in Tucson, according to The line opened with Arizona favored by 4.5 points but has shifted to 7.5 at most sportsbooks.

The Wildcats (3-3, 0-3 Pac-12) are looking for their first Pac-12 win of the 2012 campaign, and -- despite the odds -- could have trouble with a Huskies squad (3-3, 1-2 Pac-12) that knocked off then-No. 8 Stanford Cardinal in Week 4 and lost a close game, 24-14, to the then-No. 11 USC Trojans last Saturday. After a brutal 49-0 thrashing by the Oregon Ducks in Week 4, Arizona has suffered a couple of heartbreaking losses to the No. 18 Oregon State Beavers and Stanford and is looking to rebound.

Saturday's game might be the Wildcats best shot at nabbing a conference victory until November, as they'll head to Los Angeles in Week 9 to battle No. 10 USC.

The over/under is currently set at 61.5.

Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. PT at Grass of Arizona Stadium and the game will be televised on the Pac-12 Network.
