NCAA Football: Arizona at UCLA Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports

It’s been a rough season so far this year for the Arizona Wildcats. Saturday was no different as Arizona fell to the UCLA Bruins 27-10.

Even so, there were some standout players for the ‘Cats in their 10th straight loss.

Offense

Stanley Berryhill III - WR

Game Stats: 5 rec, 58 yds

Berryhill continued his strong season, leading the ‘Cats in receiving once again. He did a very good job getting separation and turning up-field once he caught the ball. He has been a bright spot all season long, grading as the second-best receiver in the Pac-12, according to Pro Football Focus.

Drew Dixon - WR

Game Stats: 3 rec, 46 yds

Dixon had a great showing in his first extended playing time this season. He, too, got great separation down the field and had three solid catches. Two went for chunk plays in the middle of the field while his third was a contested catch that gave Arizona a first down.

Defense

Christian Roland-Wallace - DB

Game Stats: 10 tackles, 0.5 TFL, 1 PBU

CRW arguably had his best game as a Wildcat. He was one of the best tacklers on the team and did a phenomenal job in coverage, including a key PBU forcing UCLA to punt. He also had another INT fall through his hands on a tipped ball. Have to feel bad for him, especially after the USC game, but I’m sure that is something he’ll work on.

Trevon Mason - DL

Game Stats: 9 tackles, 1.5 TFL

Mason was stout this game and really produced more than his stat line shows. Mason was a problem for UCLA’s offensive line most of the night. He was effective at shedding blocks and either getting into the backfield, stopping plays for no gain, or stopping plays for short gains. UCLA’s very first play from scrimmage showed Mason blowing it up for a loss. That might’ve been the best game I’ve seen Mason play.

Special Teams

Tyler Loop - P

Game Stats: 6 punts, 233 yds, 38.8 YPP, 53-yd long, 3 Inside the 20, 1 50+-yd

Loop did a fantastic job flipping the field most of the night. He has a really nice leg and has really stood out from the get-go this season on special teams. His 3 punts inside the 20 is a season high and he tied his longest punt of the season with another 53-yarder.

Lucas Havrisik - K

Game Stats: FG: 1-for-1, 26-yds; KO: 3 kicks, 3 touchbacks

Havrisik did everything he needed to against UCLA. He nailed his only field goal attempt, not counting the botch by the holder in the 4th quarter. He also kicked every kickoff back into Arizona, making sure UCLA couldn’t return anything. You can’t ask for anything more from your kicker.

Honorable Mentions

Michael Wiley - RB: 8 car, 37 yds, 1 TD; 1 rec, 3 yds

Anthony Pandy - LB: 9 tackles

Jalen Harris - LB: 7 tackles, 0.5 TFL

Rourke Freeburg - LB: 7 tackles 0.5 TFL
