Dawg Review: Arizona Wildcats Play Spoiler for Washington State Cougars Homecoming

Arizona Wildcats traveled to Pullman and pummeled the Washington State Cougars 44-6, spoiling homecoming weekend by running and passing at will.


Time to admit that the Cougs dropping their second straight game proves something is amiss. The normally stellar quarterback, Cameron Ward threw the ball 30 times, completed 22, but didn’t even crack 200 yards (192 yards). That led to a quarterback rating of just 29.0. The other side of the ball featured a porous defense with the line getting pushed around, linebackers not filling gaps, busted coverages, and poor tackling overall.

Arizona on the other hand, featured freshman QB Noah Fifita who continues to impress by getting better every week. Digital passed 43 times with 34 completions for 342 yards. Having multiple receivers getting open with a three-prong rushing attack certainly helps take the pressure off.


Just under the seven-minute mark in the first quarter, the Cougars are faced with a 4th and 1 around their own 34. Rather than punt, the Cougs quickly line up and go for it. That play would be a sign of things to come.
