In order for the Arizona Wildcats to end their program-record losing streak, they’re going to need to do a pair of things they haven’t accomplished in a while: win at the Rose Bowl and as a two-score underdog.
VegasInsider.com has installed Arizona as a 9-point underdog for Saturday’s game against the UCLA Bruins in Pasadena, Calif. That marks the sixth consecutive game the Wildcats have been dogs during what is now a 9-game losing streak, all by nine or more points.
Arizona has not win at the Rose Bowl since 2010, and it has not claimed victory in a game that it closed as a two-score underdog since October 2014 when it shocked Oregon in Eugene.
The Wildcats (0-2) are coming off a 44-27 loss at Washington, a game they trailed 37-0 before scoring four times in the fourth quarter. UCLA (1-2) fell 38-35 at Oregon.
