How will NAU do in Tucson?

Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

We've spent all week talking about how good NAU is for an FCS team this year, and their potent passing offense through two games.

So here's how we see the game playing out, and well, I guess none of us think it will be close.

Gabe Encinas: NAU apparently has a pretty solid offense. They're 2-0 and beat Stephen F. Austin, who was projected to finish 3rd in the Southland Conference, with a record of 8-3, 7-1 in conference play, for what it's worth. I'm hoping for a faster paced game and a big time lead to rest any and all starters. My prediction: 48-21 Arizona

David Potts: A dominant win. If Arizona's offense can fire on all cylinders like it did against Nevada, we probably will see a lot more Jerrard Randall (and maybe even some Brandon Dawkins!) once the game is out of hand. I'll say Arizona, 45 to 14.

Jason Bartel: I liked the way everything looked against Nevada, and even though NAU is a good FCS team, Arizona will just be too much. Going with 41-17 as the final score.

Ryan Kelapire: Northern Arizona has a high-powered offense, but I question their ability to stop the Wildcats consistently. So, I'll say Arizona wins 45-24.

Let us know how you think the game will play out!
