Utah at Arizona Open Thread

Jennifer Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

It's the quest to get the 9th win, and it will be against the Arizona Wildcats, a team that's had the Utes' number the last three seasons, specifically since Rich Rod took over the program. The No. 10 Utes need to win to keep their lead in the Pac-12 South, and move another game closer to clinching a spot in the Pac-12 Championship Game.

The Wildcats are fighting for bowl eligibility, and have had injuries all season long. Their defense isn't that good, and Utah should be able to move the ball and score some points, which they'll need to do. Arizona's offense, while they've had their ups and downs, is still an offense that will score points and churn out plenty of yards. This is a game that Utah's defensive unit is going to have to be disciplined, and not allow those big chunk runs, which they've allowed the past 3 seasons.
