Through 3 Quarters
The Washington Huskies are on the board, but we're still waiting on the Arizona Wildcats to respond. After three quarters it's looking more and more like Washington's high-powered offense is just too much for Arizona as the Huskies lead 37 to nothing. Washington has come by their advantage honestly, as they have outgained Arizona 392 yards to 75.
Washington has been relying on QB Dylan Morris, who has passed for two TDs and 230 yards on 25 attempts, and TE Cade Otton, who has caught seven passes for one TD and 100 yards. Otton's performance is making up for a slower contest against the Oregon State Beavers last week.
Washington has been a nightmare for Arizona's offensive line with four sacks already. We'll see how many sacks the Huskies can scare up the rest of the game.

Current Records: Arizona 0-1; Washington 1-0
What to Know
The Arizona Wildcats fans better hope the squad plays one heck of a game Saturday as the odds are decidedly against them. Arizona and the Washington Huskies will face off in a Pac-12 battle at 8 p.m. ET at Alaska Airlines Field at Husky Stadium. Washington will be strutting in after a win while the Wildcats will be stumbling in from a defeat.
Last week, Arizona couldn't capitalize on their home-field advantage in their season opener. They were within striking distance but couldn't close the gap as they fell 34-30 to the USC Trojans. QB Grant Gunnell put forth a good effort for the losing side as he passed for three TDs and 286 yards on 36 attempts in addition to picking up 40 yards on the ground. Gunnell's 75-yard touchdown toss to WR Tayvian Cunningham in the third quarter made for one of the most memorable moments of the afternoon.
Special teams collected 12 points for Arizona. K Lucas Havrisik delivered a perfect 3-for-3 game.
Meanwhile, Washington gave their fans exactly what they wanted out of a home opener last week. They secured a 27-21 W over the Oregon State Beavers. The Huskies' RB Sean McGrew looked sharp as he punched in one rushing touchdown.
The Wildcats suffered a grim 51-27 defeat to Washington when the two teams previously met in October of last year. Can Arizona avenge their loss, or is history doomed to repeat itself? We'll soon find out.
