Arizona will be in front of their home fans on Saturday, but a look at the spread shows they might need that home-field advantage. The Arizona Wildcats and the UCLA Bruins will face off in a Pac-12 battle at 10:30 p.m. ET at Arizona Stadium. Both teams come into the game bolstered by wins in their previous matches.
Last Saturday, Arizona's game was all tied up 10-10 at the half, but luckily for them it didn't stay that way. They came out on top in a nail-biter against Oregon State and snuck past 27-24. The victory made it back-to-back wins for Arizona.
Arizona's victory was a true team effort, with many players turning in solid performances. Perhaps the best among them was Noah Fifita, who threw for 275 yards and three touchdowns while completing 78.1% of his passes. Michael Wiley was another key contributor, picking up 58 receiving yards and two touchdowns.
Meanwhile, UCLA gave up the first points last Saturday, but they didn't let that get them down. They walked away with a 28-16 win over Colorado.
Ethan Garbers looked great while leading his team to the win, throwing for 269 yards and two touchdowns while completing 74.1% of his passes. Another player making a difference was T.J. Harden, who rushed for 78 yards and a touchdown.
The team's defense also helped out by holding Colorado to a paltry 242 yards. A big part of that defensive dominance came down to UCLA's ability to keep the quarterback under pressure: the team laid him out seven times before it was all said and done. Colorado's QB won't forget Laiatu Latu anytime soon given Latu sacked him seven times.
Arizona's win bumped their record up to 5-3. As for UCLA, their win was their fourth straight at home, bumping their overall record up to 6-2.
We should be in store for an exciting game Saturday as both the pair have no problem gaining yardage. The Wildcats have been on an offensive roll this season, having averaged 6.6 yards per play per game. However, it's not like the Bruins struggle in that department as they've been averaging 6.5 per game. With a pair of commanding offenses duking it out, the defenses are going to have their work cut out for them.
Arizona didn't have too much breathing room in their match against UCLA in their previous meeting back in November of 2022, but they still walked away with a 34-28 victory. One of the biggest obstacles trying to stand in the way of that victory was UCLA's Zach Charbonnet, who rushed for 181 yards and three touchdowns while picking up 7.5 yards per carry.
There is mounting pressure on Big Ten Conference Commissioner Tony Petitti from football coach to discipline Michigan and coach Jim Harbaugh for an alleged sign-stealing scheme that has cast a cloud over the second-ranked Wolverines as the postseason approaches.
Coaches were angry and expressed frustration during a call with Petitti over a lack of action by the conference as mounting evidence supports allegations that a Michigan staffer sent people to games to do impermissible advanced scouting of opponents, according to two people with knowledge of Wednesday’s meeting, one who listened in on the call and another who participated.
The people spoke to The Associated Press on Thursday on condition of anonymity because the conference was not making its internal discussions public.
This week’s initial College Football Playoff rankings, where Michigan was ranked third, stoked coaches’ outrage over the inaction.
“They said it was an NCAA issue and not a CFP issue. It’s a football issue,” said the person who was on the call.
During a regularly scheduled video call with Big Ten athletic directors last week, Petitti first heard complaints from within the conference and calls for the league to hand down some punishment. The call with coaches Wednesday was also regularly scheduled, but it was dominated by talk of the current allegations against Michigan.
A previously unscheduled meeting with Pettiti and the Big Ten’s athletic directors was set for later Thursday, one of the people said. Both people said Petitti suggested a possible follow-up call with the coaches on Sunday.
NCAA rules do not ban the stealing of signs, but bylaws do preclude in-person, in-season scouting and the use of electronic equipment to record opponents’ signals. The allegations against Michigan are elaborate.
Michigan and the Big Ten have acknowledged the NCAA is investigating the Wolverines football program. Michigan has suspended low-level staffer Connor Stalions.
Multiple Big Ten schools have found tickets purchased in Stalions’ name to their games over the last three seasons. A person with knowledge of the situation told AP tickets to the last two Southeastern Conference championship games were also purchased in Stalions’ name.
The NCAA investigative process is slow moving and is likely to extend well past the Jan. 8 CFP national championship game.
Even if NCAA enforcement was able to expedite the case and provide Michigan an official notice of allegations soon, the school would still have 90 days to respond. A hearing would come after that.
What kind of penalties the Big Ten could hand down are unclear. Big Ten bylaws do provide the commissioner more leeway to act quickly on matters of sportsmanship and competitive integrity.
Petitti would be acting with limited information. The NCAA has not shared much of its evidence with the Big Ten, said one of the people, who has knowledge of that situation. Big Ten schools have provided records for ticket purchases in Stalions’ name and even some video surveillance footage of people sitting in those seats, holding cellphones pointed toward the field, presumably for video recording.
