In KVOA "Tek-Net Center" Breaking Down Tomorrow's AZ vs. Washington Football Matchup

Posted: Updated:

To see some of the things to look forward to at the U of A game this Saturday as the Wildcats host #9 Washington, click on icon above. 

This is what Coach Rich Rodriguez said about the team trying to get off to a fast start:

“We have to try to do something to get us in a rhythm offensively, where we can get some first downs and gain some confidence. Once you get in a rhythm offensively, by getting some first downs and some momentum, it’s easy to take off from there. We haven’t done that in two (first) halves in a row. We just have to execute better when we come out of the gates.” 

Here are more "game notes" (provided by the Arizona Athletics Department):

» The home team has won each of the last eight meetings between the schools.

» Arizona is the last visiting team to win in the series, defeating Washington in 2007.

» These schools have met every year since 1995, the longest active streak for UA to play a conference foe other than rival ASU.

» Arizona earned its 600th all-time victory last Saturday against Hawai’i.

» The Wildcats are 47-110-1 all-time against teams ranked in the AP Top 25.

» Under Rich Rodriguez, UA is 7-12 against ranked teams, including 5-3 at home » Arizona has defeated a ranked foe 11 of the previous 12 seasons, including a win over a top-10 team in four straight years.

» Since 2005, the Cats are 7-5 against AP top-10 teams at Arizona Stadium, including 3-1 under Rodriguez.

» Brandon Dawkins and J.J. Taylor produced the first 100-yard rushing games of the respective careers last Saturday.

» Taylor, with 168 yards on 18 carries, became the 10th UA freshman to gain at least 150 rushing yards in a game.

» The Cats and Dawgs rank Nos. 1-2 in the Pac-12 for turnover margin.
