By-The-Numbers: Arizona

By-The-Numbers is back, and with so many numbers to crunch we wore out our old abacus and had to buy a new one! But we're back, and ready to slice and dice those digits. Washington hosts Arizona this week, and if the numbers have anything to say about it, that Jumbotron in Husky Stadium is going to get a workout.
