The Wildcats came up short against Stanford last week, falling 41-31. A silver lining for Arizona was the play of QB Khalil Tate, who picked up 103 yards on the ground on nine carries and accumulated 205 passing yards. One of the most memorable plays of the game was Tate’s 57-yard touchdown rush in the second quarter. Having Tate healthy enough to run plus J.J. Taylor’s improving health (160 yards from scrimmage last week) give the Arizona offense a dynamic it had been lacking when the two were battling through injuries.
Meanwhile, the Beavers didn’t have too much breathing room in their contest with California two weeks ago, but they still walked away with a 21-17 win. RB Artavis Pierce was the offensive standout of the matchup for the Beavers, as he picked up 80 yards on the ground on 23 carries and snatched one receiving touchdown. Oregon State quarterback Jake Luton continues to do an excellent job of protecting the football, with 16 touchdowns and just one interception on the season.
