11 a.m. (Pacific) at Arizona Stadium
Pac-12 Networks, ESPN-Radio 710-AM
By the bye: The Cougars, who played the first eight weekends of the season, will have taken the field only once in 27 days at kickoff.
Carey on: Arizona’s Ka’Deem Carey is the No. 2 rusher in FBS, with 152.6 yards per game. But quarterback B.J. Denker might be of even greater concern to WSU.
’Cat meow: Arizona has won the past five in the series, dating to a near-miraculous Washington State victory in Tucson in 2004, Mike Stoops’ first year at UA.
Bowl on the line: WSU is 4-5 and needs a victory here or it must take the final two games to get bowl-eligible.
Prediction: Arizona 28, Washington State 26.
