SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - You have to go back 10 years and two coaching staffs to find the last time a Utah football team finished with a losing record.
The Utes will be assured of such this season unless they can pull off a victory Saturday night against an Arizona team that already is bowl-eligible under first-year head coach Rich Rodriguez.
The Utes (4-6, 2-5 Pac-12) look like two different teams depending on whether they're playing at home or away, not unlike the Wildcats (6-4, 3-4).
While Utah is 4-1 at home, losing only to USC in a game the Utes seemingly had in hand early, Arizona has had even more drastic swings, upsetting USC three weeks ago in Tucson only to get hammered by UCLA 66-10 the following week on the road.
The Wildcats are 0-3 on the road this season but expect to have quarterback Matt Scott back after the starter missed last weekend's win over Colorado with a concussion.
