For Utah ... The Utes need a victory to maintain any hope of climbing back into the Pac-12 South title chase. They’re still two wins away from achieving bowl eligibility.
For Arizona ... The Wildcats are also in need of a win to keep any division title dreams alive. They embark on a two-game road trip (Colorado, Cal) next week.
For Utah ... Besides the momentum gained by knocking off No. 5 Stanford last week, the Utes have also prevailed in their last two trips to Tucson.
For Arizona ... The Wildcats defeated Utah 34-24 last season in Salt Lake City. They scored the last 17 points in the game to pull away for the win.
Utah will win if ... The Utes lead at halftime. They’ve won 49 consecutive games when leading at the break — the second-longest active streak in the nation.
Arizona will win if ... The Wildcats are able to force turnovers, namely interceptions. The Utes were picked off nine times in losses to Oregon State and UCLA.
