Washington/Arizona snapshot

Here's a quick look at Washington at Arizona, tonight at 7.

WASHINGTON (3-3, 1-2) AT ARIZONA (3-3, 0-3)

7 P.M., ARIZONA STADIUM, TUCSON, ARIZ.

TV: Pac-12 Networks. RADIO: 950-AM, 850-AM, 102.9-FM

THE SERIES: Washington holds an 18-9-1 edge, with the UW taking 11 of the past 17. Last year, the Huskies beat the Wildcats, 42-31, when Chris Polk scored five touchdowns, rushed for 144 yards and caught four passes for 100 yards. In 2010 in Tucson, Wildcats backup QB Matt Scott led the Wildcats to a 44-14 win on 18-for-22 passing for 233 yards and two TDs. The 2009 game in Seattle resulted in a stunning Huskies win when linebacker Mason Foster intercepted a Nick Foles pass that deflected off the foot of an Arizona receiver and returned it 37 yards for a touchdown with 2:37 left for a 36-33 victory.

WHAT TO WATCH: If Huskies QB Keith Price gets rolling. Ball security is a problem, but he also completed 16 consecutive passes against USC. If he can protect the ball and throw downfield tonight, everyone will be calling him cured by Sunday.

WHAT’S AT STAKE: The end of a losing streak and staying above .500 for the Huskies.

THE PICK: Washington, 44-34.

PRIME NUMBERS

WASHINGTON

No. Name Pos. Ht./Wt. Year

1 Sean Parker S 5-10/190 Jr.

Arizona running back Ka’Deem Carey has a knack for making safeties look bad. Parker will need to be sound with his angles.

4 Jaydon Mickens WR 5-10/170 Fr.

The speedy youngster should be in line for a couple deep shots against Arizona’s mediocre defense.

7 Shaq Thompson S/LB 6-2/215 Fr.

The true freshman should get opportunities to make some big plays for the Huskies.

17 Keith Price QB 6-1/202 Jr.

You know the story by now. Expect a big day and stories about how Washington’s pass offense has woken up.

42 Cory Littleton LB 6-3/212 Fr.

A surprise starter against Oregon, the true freshman’s appearance won’t be a surprise tonight.

ARIZONA

No. Name Pos. Ht./Wt. Year

2 Marquis Flowers S 6-3/221 Jr.

Despite playing safety, Flowers leads Arizona with 2.5 sacks. He needs to be picked up on the blitz.

4 Dan Buckner WR 6-4/215 Sr.

The Texas transfer will often be Marcus Peters’ responsibility.

10 Matt Scott QB 6-3/196 Sr.

Scott leads the conference in passing yards and total offense.

15 John Bonano K 6-1/214 Sr.

Bonano is 6-for-11 on field goals this season, including 3-for-6 from 20 to 29 yards.

25 Ka’Deem Carey RB 5-10/197 So.

The Tucson native has scored a touchdown in five of Arizona’s six games. The only one he didn’t, the Wildcats lost to Oregon, 49-0.
