Washington is really bad with Jake Locker and probably pathetically bad without him. With that said, everyone says Ronnie Fouch isn’t that bad (I don’t know, I’ve never seen him) and I’m a little worried about the UA’s health at the defensive tackle position. So I think Arizona wins, but UW probably hangs around for a bit.
Gershon's Overall Record: 2-2
Ronnie Fouch is better than people think and I have never been a big fan of Jake Locker. However, I also do not think the Washington coaching staff is good enough to devise a plan to stop Arizona’s offense. The Huskies are much more banged up than just Locker, and the Wildcats should open up a quick lead and cruise from there on out.
Scheer's Overall Record: 2-2
Washington can't stop anyone in any way and everyone knows the Wildcats have some serious weapons on offense. Redshirt freshman Ronnie Fouch has been thrown in to replace the injured Jake Locker and while he has a nice arm, he is nowhere near the dual-threat that Locker is. Oh yeah, and the freshman should get a pretty good test in his first career start as he will be going up against the nation's top-ranked pass defense.
Schultz's Overall Record: 3-1
Entering the season, this game looked likely to possibly determine the fate of one of the two head coaches. At the end of the game, whither Tyrone Willingham and Mike Stoops marches on.
Oehler's Overall Record: 2-2
In Tucson, overconfidence kills the 'Cats. Every year Arizona drops a home contest that was seemingly a lock in the win column (see New Mexico and Stanford in 2007). But that's exactly why UA wins this year. This team is different and has turned the corner in terms of playing hard every week. Ronnie Fouch tries to become a hero in his first career start and the UA secondary picks him off three times. Arizona pounces on top of the ‘Dawgs early as it leads by two scores 10 minutes into the game. It's gonna be a laugher.

UW can't stop Arizona on the ground or through the air. The Huskies also can't run the ball. That leaves the UW passing game for Arizona to game plan against. Get players in quarterback Ronnie Fouch's face, and I see no reason why Arizona won't walk away with a victory.
Anderson's Overall Record: 3-1
The Huskies have had a brutal early schedule and have surrendered 40.5 points per game. Arizona should jump out early and cruise the rest of the way. Jake Locker was Washington’s lone hope and now he is out, the Wildcats shouldn't have much difficulty winning this game.
Nimrichter's Overall Record: 3-1
Let it be known that the new guy has a better record than the all-mighty Gershon, Scheer and Oehler, so from now on you might just want to scroll straight to the bottom of the page for staff picks articles. This weekend's meeting with Washington was very frightening until Jake Locker broke his thumb. Washington is 0-4, only SMU has allowed more total yards per game than the Huskies, and the man who has been responsible for 70% of Washington's offense is out indefinitely. As long as the Wildcats can stay mentally balanced throughout the game, there's no way Arizona doesn't go 4-1.
