The Arizona Wildcats are seeking to improve to 8-2 with a victory at home against the Washington Huskies, who have fallen to 6-4.
No. 14 Arizona recovered from a loss to No. 11 UCLA as they recovered with a 38-20 win against Colorado. Colorado appeared to be on track for an upset in the second quarter, but Arizona pulled away in the second half.
Wildcats quarterback Anu Solomon threw for 211 passing yards with four touchdown passes, and he rushed for 105 yards on 13 carries. Running back Nick Wilson ran for 153 yards on 21 carries.
Wide receiver Samajie Grant experienced his best game of the season as he caught six passes for 83 yards and two touchdowns.
The Wildcats will look to get back in the Pac-12 South title race as they take on Washington, who is coming off a 44-30 loss to UCLA.
The Huskies have lost three of their last four games since starting the season 5-1, which is largely due to them playing difficult Pac-12 matchups.
Quarterback Cyler Miles struggled against UCLA as he was held to 155 yards with no touchdown passes and an interception, but he ran for 62 yards and a touchdown on 17 carries.
Linebacker Shaq Thompson continued to receive the bulk of the carries and ran for 100 yards on 16 carries, and he should be able to continue this sort of production against an underwhelming Arizona defense.
However, Solomon is a better quarterback than Miles, and the Wildcats will have home-field advantage.
