If you don't get to him, he's likely to get to you.
Yes, Arizona has surrendered 13 sacks already this season. But Nick Foles has completed 72 percent (170-of-236) of his passes in throwing for 1,877 yards and 14 TDs.
If you think Oregon State has had early season woes, consider that of the 120 FBS teams, only Rice, Kansas, UAB, Memphis and New Mexico have given up more yards per game than Arizona's 503.
Can the Beavs take advantage of that, though? Oregon State is averaging just 16 points per game.
OSU is young. How young? Eight of the 11 defensive starters against Arizona State had not started a game before this season.
In the loss to USC, Arizona surrendered 48 points, got 0 sacks and forced 0 punts. But Arizona was still in that game to the end, losing 48-41.
It bears repeating, If you don't get to him, he's likely to get to you. Foles is the No. 3 passer in the nation (375.4 yards per game).
Offensive guard Josh Andrews (knee) practiced lightly Wednesday but will not play against Arizona.
Running back Malcolm Agnew (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday, making it all but certain he will not play against the Wildcats on Saturday.
Although Oregon State did a number of better than expected things against ASU on defense, one that will not be remembered fondly was a TD run by one of their backs, where he shook off six would-be tackles.
