TUCSON, Ariz. — TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Arizona's second season under coach Rich Rodriguez hasn't gone quite as planned.

Coming off an eight-win first season under Rodriguez that included a rousing bowl victory, the Wildcats went into this season with even more expectations.

After opening with wins over Northern Arizona, UNLV and UTSA, Arizona has struggled since the Pac-12 season started.

The Wildcats lost to then-No. 17 Washington in sloppy conditions on Sept. 28 and got off to a slow start against Southern California last week before a rally came up short in the Trojans' first game under interim coach Ed Orgeron.

Arizona faces another tough test on Saturday, facing a Utah team that had one of its biggest wins as a program last weekend by knocking off No. 5 Stanford.
