Arizona vs. ASU: Anu Solomon will not play for Wildcats in Territorial Cup

After being listed as questionable Anu Solomon is listed as OUT for Saturday's game in Tempe.

The Arizona Wildcats will be without Anu Solomon in today's Territorial Cup, Jerrard Randall will start instead.

This can be viewed two ways as a Wildcat fan; a blessing or a curse. Obviously this is awful news that Anu can't play because he was just starting to hit his stride after throwing over 600 yards the past two games. Also, Arizona's offense just seems to be more fluid with Anu under center because he is a better passer than Randall is.

The possible blessing from this is that the Arizona State Sun Devils have prepared for Anu a lot more than they have prepared for Randall. Now yes, after the injury report came out on Thursday and ASU more than likely adjusted with the possibility that they will be facing Randall. But the bottom line is, they had to split their time between quarterbacks which could possibly mean they're not full prepared for Randall.

Hopefully Randall has some confidence to carry into this one, after throwing the winning touchdown against Utah on senior day last week.
