Staff Predictions: Washington

Arizona is set to face Washington on Saturday. Read on to see how WildcatAuthority.com sees the game playing out.

Ashley Nevel: Coming off a bye-week, Arizona has had time to rest. However, it seems like the Wildcats are still dealing with injuries. Despite these injuries, Arizona's offense is fully capable of scoring on Washington.

Both the Wildcats and Huskies have a 3-3 record and Arizona is still looking to win a game against a Pac-12 team. Saturday's battle in Tucson will end with an Arizona victory.

Arizona 37, Washington 24

Overall: 3-3



Michael Luke: Arizona's ability to get to Keith Price will decide this game. When Price has time he can get the ball to possible future first round picks Kasen Williams and Austin Seferian Jenkins.

The problem is that Price has spent most the season running for his life. Washington is much improved defensively, but I still look for Arizona to put up points.

Washington 37, Arizona 34

Overall: 3-3



Jason Nimrichter: While Arizona has struggled on the defensive side of the ball, Washington can't seem to put together anything consistent on either side.

The Huskies' offense is ranked towards the bottom of the conference and they've found it difficult to put points on the board at times. They will score more points than they average against a sub-par UA defense, but the Wildcats offense will be able to move the ball at will against Washington and win by a comfortable margin.

Arizona 54, Washington 31

Overall: 4-2



Cody James Martin: Looking at the implications that this game has for either team makes it a tough one to pick. With matching .500 records, winning and losing could make or break the season. Playing at home, it is a game that Arizona should have the advantage in.

Arizona's offense has been brilliant so far this season (with one exception). There is no reason to think that it will be anything less than that against a atrocious Husky rushing defense.

The Wildcats will run the ball well and open up the passing lanes. Washington may keep it close, but Arizona will take it on Parent's Weekend.

Arizona 38, Washington 28

Overall: 4-2



Jason Scheer: For some reason, I have never thought that Washington was going to win this game. The passing numbers are great defensively for the Huskies, but that is due in large part to the fact that teams run all over them.

I don't see Washington being able to shut down a balanced Arizona offense and I am not sure the Huskies can put up enough points to keep up with Arizona.

Arizona 35, Washington 20

Overall 4-2
