A Monumental Opener

Securing a win over the Aztecs would be a crucial moment for rookie head coach Jedd Fisch, who is taking the helm of a college football team that has struggled with a 4-8 and 0-5 record in its last two seasons.

Despite losing their first game against BYU in Las Vegas with a score of 24-16, Fisch’s squad managed to cover the 13.5-point spread.

A week later, the Wildcats are set to play against an SDSU team that easily defeated New Mexico State, 28-10, in their season opener.

Following a 4-4 finish in head coach Brady Hoke’s return to San Diego, the Aztecs have maintained winning records in each full season since 2010.

Fisch and his team are excited to see what redshirt freshman QB Gunner Cruz can do on Saturday after an impressive debut where he threw for 336 yards and a touchdown as a former Washington State Cougar.

In the team’s debut game, Cruz showcased a strong connection with senior wide receiver Stanley Berryhill III, as the pair linked up for 12 catches and 102 yards.

Expect Fisch to heavily lean on Cruz to handle the bulk of the offensive responsibilities, which could pose challenges for the Aztecs defense that gave up 326 passing yards in their previous game against the Aggies.

Unfamiliar Foes

The Wildcats and Aztecs have met nine times since 1971, but have not played each other in twenty years. Arizona secured a 23-10 victory over SDSU at Qualcomm Stadium in their last matchup.

Arizona has won four straight games against the Aztecs, with wins of 17-3 in 2000, 35-16 in 1998, and 31-28 in 1997.

The Aztecs’ offense in 2021 will focus on running the ball, led by senior running back Greg Bell.

Bell ran for 161 yards and scored a touchdown in the team’s debut game, with an average of 7.7 yards per carry.

The Aztecs are expected to adhere to their game plan when they take on the Wildcats at Arizona Stadium on Saturday night.

The Wildcats last defeated the Colorado Buffaloes on October 5, 2019, a total of 706 days ago.

If Fisch and his players can effectively execute a strategy that prevents Bell from accumulating rushing yards, then Saturday night could mark the end of the prolonged losing streak.
