Staff Picks: Arizona vs. UCLA

Arizona is going to win this game easily, but I don’t think people realize how important this game is. After this game, the Wildcats take on Stanford, USC and Oregon — the three best teams Arizona will play — all in a row. UA needs to work out all of the kinks this week so that it’s firing on all cylinders next week in Palo Alto.

Is Nick Foles starting? Is Matt Scott starting? The answer: It doesn’t matter. Forget about UCLA’s win over Texas. It was a one-hit wonder. The Bruins’ pistol offense is predictable and Arizona’s defense is stout. As always, UCLA has a world of talent, but it won’t translate into a win this weekend. Wildcats stomp on the Bruins and get Mike Stoops to .500 as Arizona’s coach.

This weekend may be the perfect opportunity to give Nick Foles a chance to rest his kneecap one more week before the Wildcats take on the Cardinal. Arizona has to take care of business in Pasadena this weekend first, though. Any hopes of getting back to the Rose Bowl in January begin with getting a victory in the Rose Bowl in October.
