Ari­zona over ORE­GON by 3

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - 2-minute Handicap -

The Wild­cats – who have won five of their last six games – rushed for a school record 534 yards on 9.7 YPR against Ore­gon State last week, in­clud­ing 206 yards and 2 touch­downs on the ground from dy­namic QB Khalil Tate on 16 car­ries. The sopho­more has now rushed for 137 or more yards in each of his six starts for a to­tal of 11 rush­ing TDs to go along with 8 TD passes. On the down side, Ari­zona is just 1-3 SU and 0-4 ATS on the road in the reg­u­lar sea­son fol­low­ing Last Home Games. Mean­while, the Ducks need one win in their fi­nal two games to go hol­i­day par­ty­ing this postseason, and with Ore­gon State on deck, one would as­sume it to be a layup – but noth­ing’s cer­tain with this year’s undis­ci­plined team (leads the na­tion in penal­ties). How­ever, Ore­gon is 26-6 SU and 22-9 ATS with rest dur­ing the reg­u­lar sea­son. Our con­cern comes from the MID­WEEK ALERT as it warns that OU is be­ing out­yarded by -52 YPG since Game Five. That’s a -104 YPG slide over their pro­duc­tion dur­ing the open­ing month of the sea­son, one we’re not about to mess with. There­fore, it’s a tepid call for the vis­i­tors.
