The Arizona Wildcats are playing live on Fox Sports 1 on Thursday night against UTSA at the Alamodome at 8 pm ET and the matchup with the Cats and the Texas-San Antonio Roadrunners comes after a nice opening win for the Pac-12 side and the matchup is streaming live from Fox Sports Go and is head to head with the NFL opening game.
The Wildcats come in after a dominating win in the first game of the season over UNLV and the two players that made an impact were Anu Solomon and Terris Jones-Grigsby, who led the way in passing and rushing yards. Solomon went for over 400 yards in the massive win, while Jones-Grigsby had 124 yards on just 13 carries and he also scored a touchdown, while Nick Wilson, Austin Hill and Samajie Grant also had solid games.
The Wildcats have the chance to be one of the best offensive teams in the nation and they should get some nice support from Hill , who had three catches for 110 yards and a score, while Grant added four for 101 yards and a touchdown. Wilson had another solid performance with seven catches for 104 yards and a TD and now the team has another easy game before jumping into Nevada and then the Pac-12 schedule picks up with Cal and a big game against Oregon.
The Wildcats first massive game is against Oregon and that starts a major stretch that likely will decide if this team will be good or not this season. The team is on the road against Oregon and that will be another Thursday night game, while they will host USC after that and they are looking good this season. The team then has back to back road games against Washington State and then against the UCLA Bruins, who have a strong Heisman candidate in Brett Hundley and that could be a massively offensive game with these two teams.
Even though it's just one week of the season, the team is ranked in the top 10 in the nation in scoring, passing yards per game and rushing yards per game and now they have another east opponent before the schedule picks up. After the brutal stretch in the middle that has the Bruins, the team will play two home games and three of four in Zona. The team has Colorado and Washington at home and then they will hit the road to play the Utah Utes and they finish the season with a game at home against Arizona State, who came into the season ranked.
