It was always going to end this way, wasn’t it?
In a season full of late kickoffs, particularly at Arizona Stadium, the last one in Tucson will be the latest of them all.
Arizona (4-6, 2-5 Pac-12) brings a five-game losing streak into the home finale, most recently losing 34-6 at Oregon. The Wildcats have been outscored 223-116 during their skid.
Utah (9-1, 6-1) has won six straight, beating UCLA 49-3 over the weekend to mark the fifth time this season the Utes have held an opponent to single digits.
This will be Arizona’s last home game, but not its final one this season in the state. The Territorial Cup is Nov. 30 in Tempe, and if the Wildcats somehow win their final two games to become bowl-eligible it’s very possible they’ll play in the Cheez-It Bowl in Phoenix on Dec. 27.
