Arizona vs. Utah Odds: Wildcats Open As Slight Favorites Over Utes

The Wildcats will be looking for their second conference victory of the season as the Utah Utes come to Tucson.

After hanging tough with the Washington Huskies last Saturday, the Arizona Wildcats enter this weekend's matchup against the Utah Utes as slight favorites. According to Odds Shark, the 'Cats will be favored by four points as they take on their Pac-12 foes for the first time since joining the conference.

Arizona, a team that enters the game with a record of 2-6 (1-5), has shown signs of great improvement since the firing of Mike Stoops took place three weeks ago. Utah is also coming into the matchup with some momentum, seeing as they earned their first conference victory of the year this past weekend.

It will be homecoming weekend in Tucson and a near-sellout is expected for the 4 p.m. kickoff. UA might be out of the running for the conference title and a bowl game, but this team has a lot of pride and will not go down without a fight. Expect a big performance from the Wildcats on Saturday.
