The Wildcats used a balanced effort to defeat Washington 48-14 at Arizona Stadium.
The game opened with Washington giving it up quickly and Arizona taking advantage. The Wildcats got to UW's 12-yard line, but were unable to capitalize. However, a Jason Bondzio 29-yard field goal made the score 3-0 for the UA.
Later in the quarter, Rob Gronkowski continued his career long domination of the Huskies, getting a little dunk pass and taking it for a 37-yard touchdown. At this point, the Huskies looked pathetic and Tyrone Willingham seemed to have absolutely no game plan for Gronkowski, which is obviously inexcusbale.
Not soon after, Gronkowski had a 27-yard catch and Nicolas Grigsby had a 25-yard run and a four-yard run to give Arizona the 17-0 lead. Grigsby was able to run to the sides throughout the night and he received numerous big gains when Washington's linebackers over pursued him.
The Huskies cut the lead to 17-7 and that was basically as close as they would come. Arizona dominated the game throughout and it seemed that the Huskies had quit by halftime.
No offense to Willingham, but it is apparent that this team does not want to play for him any more. Gronkowski went on to score two more times and each time, he was open on the same play.
Either the coaching staff was unprepared or the players gave up and that is something the Huskies will find out laster this week.
Either way, Arizona moves to 4-1 and is on top of the Pac-10 for another week.
Easy win for Arizona
