The Arizona Wildcats have looked more like the Arizona Pussycats in their last three games. After an opening season win against FCS foe Northern Arizona, they have lost three consecutive games and are 1-3 overall and 0-2 in the Pac-12.
Of course, a lot of teams would have lost to Oklahoma State, Stanford and Oregon. All three are ranked in the top 10. But the Wildcats have lost by substantial margins, having given up 37 points to Oklahoma State and Stanford and a whopping 56 points to Oregon last Saturday.
In fact, Arizona has lost eight consecutive games to FBS opponents, and they really need a win in the Coliseum to get back on the winning track and get in contention for a bowl game.
Of course, with the Trojans coming off a terrible performance in Tempe against Arizona State, I doubt if USC would have fared any better against three top 10 opponents. Last week, USC proved that they are vulnerable both on the field and on the sidelines.
While USC (3-1) will be favored at home, at least the Wildcats no longer have to deal with the upper echelons of the Pac-12. .
There is really no telling how this one will play out. So, continue reading to find out what you need to know about the Arizona Wildcats.
