Wildcats find themselves in spoiler role

Rodriguez, Wildcats find themselves in spoiler role

Coming off an embarrassing loss at Washington State, will Arizona be able to protect its home field against hard-charging Colorado?

Two Pac-12 adversaries trending in opposite directions collide tonight, with a 10 p.m. ET kickoff on the West Coast. Online sports book BetDSI opened the Buffaloes as 15-point favorites over Rich Rodriguez’s squad. The over/under is set at 60.

While Boulder’s positively giddy at present, the people of Tucson have little choice but to shake their heads in dismay. The Wildcats (2-7) absorbed a 69-7 drubbing at the hands of WSU a week ago. They’re also mired in a six-game losing streak for the first time in 14 years.

Obviously, things couldn’t get much rosier for the Buffs (7-2). Mike MacIntyre’s troops just dispatched UCLA and control their own destiny in the South Division. On offense, senior quarterback Sefo Liufau leads a sharp passing attack, with heavy utilization of receiver Shay Fields.

Arizona’s only hope of keeping this one competitive boils down to Samajie Grant’s ability to run the football. After receiving no carries in the Wildcats’ first seven tilts, the California native boasts 27 totes since Oct. 29. Yet Colorado’s an extremely disciplined, motivated team. Look for MacIntyre’s group to finish with a 3-2 road record.
