Arizona vs. UNLV gamethread: The last time the Wildcats were here ...

Willie Tuitama!

Las Vegas is a magical place. Every time I wake up from passing out a slumber or a nap, I wonder why I am not waking up at the Venetian pool. Also, I wonder why I am not filled with Bud Light Lime.

The first time visiting Sin City as an adult, I watched Willie Tuitama scramble for a touchdown. Then I jumped a 15-foot set of stadium seats to rush the field because sometimes you've just got to celebrate a bowl drought the right way.

I'm not in Las Vegas, and if I was, I'd ideally not have to worry about the Wildcats losing to dreadful UNLV. But you know, there's always that worry. It wasn't there against NAU, and even though next week's opponent, UTSA, gave a top-15 Oklahoma State team a little bit of trouble today -- the Cowboys won 56-35 -- it's this week's game that has disappointment written all over it.

Arizona plays against a team that calls Vegas home. And Vegas picks Arizona as a less-than-two-touchdown favorite, which seems too close for comfort.

Here's to hoping that the Wildcats find some offensive mojo after running it at a snail's pace last week.
