The Utah Utes are hoping to improve to 8-3 and stay in the Pac-12 South title hunt as they face the 8-2 Arizona Wildcats at home.
No. 17 Utah proved their resilience once again as they came away with a 20-17 double overtime win against Stanford, who continues to be a tough defensive team despite their 5-5 record.
Quarterback Travis Wilson showed his clutch gene again as he threw a touchdown pass in each overtime period, and he was able to overcome a forgettable 58-yard performance by running back Devontae Booker.
The Utes improved their record to 7-3 with this win, and they are hoping to stay in the Pac-12 South title race just like No. 15 Arizona, who will be their next opponent.
Arizona escaped with a 27-26 victory at home against Washington, and they have an 8-2 record. Kicker Casey Skowron drilled a 47-yard field goal at the very last second to win the game for the Wildcats.
Quarterback Anu Solomon threw for 242 yards and two interceptions on 17-of-39 passing, but running back Nick Wilson carried the load with 30 carries for 104 yards and two touchdowns.
The Utes have a physical defense that will be a challenge for the Wildcats, and playing at home will give them an advantage. The Wildcats have scored 35.6 points per game though. This game will be a thrilling battle between offense and defense.
Prediction: Utah 24, Arizona 21
