College Football Preview, Arizona at UTSA
- Updated: September 3, 2014
The Arizona Wildcats will travel east to face the University of Texas at San Antonio Roadrunners at the Alamodome. Arizona was able to completely dominate in their first game against UNLV. The Wildcats were able to put up impressive numbers both rushing and passing against UNLV. UTSA was also able to win their first game, but in far less-greater fashion then their week two foes. The roadrunners will need to step up their game against Arizona if they hope to please their home crowds.
–Keys for the UTSA Roadrunners:
- Defense will need to again be as stout as they were last week, when they only allowed seven points against an unimpressive Houston squad. The defense will again have to show and force some turnovers.
- Tucker Carter will have to make more throws downfield against the Wildcats. Last week carter only managed to go for 121 passing yards albeit he only attempted 24 throws.
- The rushing game wasn’t that much better luckily the backs were set up in good positions on the field and they were able to punch it in. Glasco and Williams will have to punch it through the Arizona defense.
–Keys for the Arizona Wildcats:
- Anu Solomon threw 44 passes for 425 yards and 4 touchdowns in week one. Those impressive numbers helped to earn his offense 58 points. However the Wildcats must not come unprepared and overlook UTSA. Solomon will again need to remain calm in the pocket and step up into his throws.
- Nick Wilson was impressive with an 85-yard touchdown run last week, but Terris Jones-Grigsby got the bulk of the carries with 14 and 124 yards, both of which led his team.
–NO KEY INJURIES TO DATE
–Favorite/Odds: Arizona by 7 points
–The Arizona Wildcats will enter as the favorite as the away team for week two. The Wildcats must not overlook this team, the college football season has proven time and again that a weaker home team is sometimes able to capitalize on any mistakes their opponents might make. As long as they play their game, the Wildcats should be safe.
