Arizona vs Colorado Game Preview
Why Arizona Will Win
The team really is playing better.
It’s having a hard time scoring – it hasn’t been able to get to 20 points – but it battled well against Oregon and pushed UCLA in a 34-16 loss last week. It helps that the defense has improved enough to keep the team in games.
The 2020 defense allowed 410 yards or more in all five games, and in 18 of 19 games before this year. In 2021, the Wildcats have allowed more than 400 yards just twice in five games – the D is keeping the team in games.

Arizona isn’t able to hit anything down the field, the ground attack isn’t making up for it, and the team isn’t making up for the problems with the turnover margin.
What’s Going To Happen
The first team to score wins?

Arizona is struggling, but it got past 350 yards four times in five games. Colorado hasn’t been able to get past 260 yards since the opener.
Arizona has lost 17 straight games since coming up with a win in early October of 2019 on the road against …
