What to Know
Arizona has had a week off and are no doubt ready to get back on the field. They will be playing in front of their home fans against N. Arizona at 10:45 p.m. ET on Saturday at Arizona Stadium. N. Arizona will be strutting in after a win while the Wildcats will be stumbling in from a loss.
The last time they met, Arizona was the 47-28 winner over Hawaii. This time around? They had no such luck. It was a hard-fought game, but Arizona had to settle for a 38-45 defeat against Hawaii two weeks ago. If the result catches you off guard, it should: Arizona was the far and away favorite.
Meanwhile, the Lumberjacks gave their fans exactly what they wanted out of a home opener. They were able to grind out a solid victory over Missouri State, winning 37-23. Missouri State can consider this payback for the 8-40 loss they dealt the Lumberjacks the last time the teams encountered one another.
This next matchup looks promising for the Wildcats, who are favored by a full 28.5 points. Those burned by picking them against the spread next month might want to keep in mind that the team has never dropped back-to-back games against the spread this season.
The Wildcats simply couldn't be stopped when the teams met two seasons ago, as they easily beat the Lumberjacks 62-24. Will Arizona repeat their success, or does the Lumberjacks have a better game plan this time around? We'll find out soon enough.
