Last Meeting: 2008, Arizona, 48-14
What's at Stake
Despite its near upset of Notre Dame last weekend, Washington needs to stem a two-game losing streak in the first of only two home games between now and Nov. 28. Arizona can add to its early season legitimacy with a second straight conference road victory.
Washington DE Daniel Te'o-Nesheim vs. Arizona RT Adam Grant. Te'o-Nesheim and the Huskies defensive line was called out after their inability to pressure Notre Dame's Jimmy Clausen last week. Grant, a Puyallup, Wash.-native, and the rest of the Arizona line will try and give QB Nick Foles plenty of time to throw downfield.
Players to watch
Arizona: RB Nic Grigsby. Had this game been a week ago, Grigsby likely would have likely been a spectator. But the bye gave Grigsby time to get his bum shoulder healthy and he's ready to bring his 8.1 yards per carry average against the Huskies.
Washington: S Greg Walker and Victor Aiewya. Justin Glenn had solidified himself as the Huskies free safety with his solid assignment and excellent open-field tackling. Glenn is out for the season with a leg injury, leaving the duo of Walker and Aiewya to pick up the slack.
