Arizona is set to take on Washington State and here are the things to watch for.
1. A blow out: It seems obvious and it is, because WSU is not a good team at all. Arizona should be able to get up early and if it foes not, much of it likely has to do with the weather. The UA is better at basically every position and it should be evident from the start.
2. New faces: With the lead likely being big late in the game, we expect to see Arizona coach Mike Stoops play some younger players. Xavier Smith should get a considerable amount of carries out of the backfield, but players like William Wright, David Douglas, Dominique Austin, and a few others should also get plenty of time.
3. A run heavy attack: With the weather being as it is, we feel offensive coordinator Sonny Dykes will go to the ground. We expect both Nicolas Grigsby and Keola Antolin to get at least 20 carries each in order to completely control the game and keep the clock moving.
4. Focus: Make no mistake about it, the UA is going to be focused on this game. This one of the biggest games in quite a while and Stoops knows that if anything negative were to happen, his career would be at risk.
