TUCSON (KVOA) – As the Arizona Wildcat football team gets set for the game against Washington on Saturday, Coach Kevin Sumlin and the UofA realize there might be cold, rainy weather in Seattle.  Coach Sumlin said at his weekly pressure that ball control is a “must”, which means the running game will have to be on-point for both the Huskies and Wildcats as they execute their game plans.

Arizona’s not worried about their play at Runningback.  Senior Gary Brightwell rushed for 112 yards against USC and is averaging over 5 yards per carry.    It was the fourth 100-yard game at the U of A, and pushed him over the 1,000 total rushing yards mark for his career.

Kickoff on Saturday is set for 6 p.m. and the game will be televised nationally.
