Arizona and Washington will look to stay unbeaten when they open conference play tonight at Husky Stadium in Seattle. This evening's battle between the two Pac-12 rivals is scheduled to kick off at 7:00pm ET on FOX. Late Pac-12 College Football Odds from offshore bookmaker 5Dimes have the Huskies listed as a -10 against the spread home favorite and the Over/Under set at 62 points. The Wildcats are drawing +315 money line odds ($100 wins $315) to earn their fourth win of the season.
Arizona is a perfect 3-0 on the season and it has dominated all comers thus far, scoring wins of 35-0, 58-13, and 38-13. However, the Wildcats best opponent to date was a game but still outmanned Texas-San Antonio squad.
In other words, Rich Rodriguez troops are about to get their first real test of the season and the odds makers are not anticipating a passing grade.
Washington owns the same 3-0 record as its conference rival, but two of its wins came against teams that possess the ability to hit back. The Huskies opened their 2013 schedule with a 38-6 whipping of a down, but still respectable Boise State team and they took out a better than advertised Illinois squad 34-24 in their second outing.
Washington did play a conference tune up last weekend, though, when it squared off against Idaho State at Husky Stadium. The result was, as expected, another lopsided one with Steve Sarkisian's squad blasting the Bengals 56-0. The Huskies finished the game with 30 first downs and 680 yards while Idaho State tallied 13 and 164, respectively.
When these two teams met last year in Tucson Arizona caught Washington in the perfect situation. The Wildcats were coming off a bye while the Huskies had lost at home to USC the previous weekend. The result reflected each team's emotional state as Arizona scored an easy 52-17 win.
While Washington may not hold a situational advantage over Arizona in this year's contest, it does have the upper hand in at least two areas: location and talent.
The Huskies get the Wildcats within the confines of their recently refurbished stadium and with 18 starters back from last year's squad, they also sport the more lethal roster.
Notable Trends: Washington is 5-0 straight up and 3-1-1 against the spread in its last five games as a home favorite with a total of 54.5 or more points.
