The Cats got a big play on their first play from scrimmage and tacked on a 15-yard roughing the passer penalty. Two sacks later the Cats were printing and it would be a long time before the Wildcats would have another offensive highlight.
After a punt the Tigers took over near midfield and marched inside the Wildcat five before settling for a field goal.
For Tuitama it was a long night. The sophomore passer was pressured all night and was just 8-17 for 57 yards. He threw two picks and was sacked three times.
Adam Austin relieved him late in the third with similar results. Austin was 7-18 for 63 yards and an interception. He did lead the Cats to their lone score.
The Arizona offense never got going. They amassed just 135 total yards and just 36 on the ground.
Chris Jennings got the ball late and the junior college transfer did pick up 53 yards on eight carries.
