Wildcat Preview: UTSA

TUCSON, AZ (AP) -

Arizona's early schedule isn't exactly daunting, but the team the Wildcats face in Tucson on Saturday night, UTSA, might present the biggest challenge of the opening three.

The Roadrunners beat New Mexico in their opener 21-13 and scored 35 points against 13th-ranked Oklahoma State last weekend. Of course, the Cowboys scored 56.

Oddsmakers have made Arizona a 25-point favorite to beat the visitors from San Antonio and improve to 3-0 heading into Pac-12 play. After Saturday night's game, Arizona has a bye week before opening Pac-12 play Sept. 28 at Washington.

The Wildcats, in their second season under coach Rich Rodriguez, have outscored Northern Arizona and UNLV by a combined 93-13 in their first two games.
