Through 3 Quarters
Although the Arizona Wildcats were the underdogs at kickoff, they've since taken control of the game. Sitting on a score of 16-7, they have looked like the better team out there today, but there's still one more quarter to play.
The Wildcats have enjoyed the tag-team combination of RB Stevie Rocker Jr. and WR Jamarye Joiner. The former has picked up 69 yards on the ground on six carries, while the latter has punched in one rushing touchdown. The Washington Huskies have been riding high on the performance of WR Terrell Bynum, who has snatched one receiving TD.
This is the first time Arizona has been ahead going into the fourth quarter in the past seven games.

What to Know
The Washington Huskies are 4-0 against the Arizona Wildcats since October of 2015, and they'll have a chance to extend that success on Friday. The Huskies and Arizona will face off in a Pac-12 battle at 10:30 p.m. ET at Arizona Stadium. Given that both teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this contest.
Washington came within a touchdown against the UCLA Bruins last week, but they wound up with a 24-17 loss. RB Sean McGrew had a pretty forgettable game, rushing for 38 yards on 18 carries.
Meanwhile, a win for the Wildcats just wasn't in the stars last week as the team never even grasped a temporary lead. They ended up on the wrong side of a painful 34 to nothing walloping at the Colorado Buffaloes' hands. Arizona was down 27 to nothing at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to recover from.
Washington is the favorite in this one, with an expected 17.5-point margin of victory. But bettors beware: they are only 1-3 against the spread when favored.
Washington is now 2-4 while the Wildcats sit at 0-6. A couple stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Huskies are 227th worst in the nation in thrown interceptions, having thrown eight on the season. Arizona has experienced some struggles of their own as they are stumbling into the game with the 246th most thrown interceptions in the nation, having thrown 11 on the season. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
