What you need to know about Arizona

Arizona defeated FCS powerhouse North Dakota State 31-28 last Saturday to complete a successful 2-1 non-conference season. Transfer QB Jayden de Laura was efficient, completing 20 of 28 passes for 229 yards and a touchdown in the win. He also added 50 yards and a score on 10 rushing attempts. Arizona has a strong receiving unit led by UTEP transfer Jacob Cowing, 5 star true freshmen Tetairoa McMillan and Dorian Singer. Cowing has 21 catches for 253 yards and five touchdowns in his three games as a Wildcat.

Arizona added two more hasty scores against Michael Wiley’s and Jonah Coleman’s Bison, both players who averaged more than five yards per hasty in the game. Last year, Arizona defeated the Golden Bears 10-3 for the team’s only win of the 2021 season. Cal was behind 24 players due to health protocols, and in an ugly offensive game, the Wildcats took advantage.

What you need to know about California

The Golden Bears lost a 17-14 lead at the end of the third quarter, losing 10 unanswered points to Notre Dame in last week’s narrow loss. QB Jack Plummer, a Purdue transfer, struggled with his accuracy, going 16 of 37 for 184 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the loss. Despite the offensive challenges, Cal nearly defeated the Fighting Irish, but came only one meter short, 297-296.

Junior wide receiver Jeremiah Hunter leads the team with 223 yards on 16 receptions and J. Michael Sturdivant has 14-165-1, scoring last week against Notre Dame. The Golden Bears may have an air challenge against Arizona, who is in the top 20 in allowed passing yards. The Wildcats are in the bottom 25 in terms of rushing yards against per game, so there’s a big chance for Cal’s ground game led by Jaydn Ott to succeed.
