TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

My thoughts and ramblings from the 11th game of the Arizona Wildcats football season. Due to time constraints of the week, this is an abbreviated version.

#10 Utah

•    Anu Solomon opens with a nice back shoulder throw to David Richards for 23 yards.
•    But a drop by Richards kills the drive and the Wildcats settle for three.
•    Casey Skowron sneaks in the 47-yarder.
•    Tellas Jones coming quick off the edge gets UA’s first sack of the night.
•    Nick Wilson returns to the lineup with punishing runs.
•    Solomon running again tonight.
•    Solomon with plenty of time in pocket to find Samajie Grant for seven-yard touchdown.
•    Tellas shoots gap to snuff out Devontae Booker.
•    Utah with a methodical 6:30 minute drive that will wear you out later in the game.
•    This time Solomon takes advantage of the one-on-one Cayleb Jones match-up and throws to him for the score. Why didn’t he do that against USC?
•    Tellas making plays in coverage too?!?
•    Jarvis McCall has a knack for closing after he appears beat, makes the tip to Jamar Allah for the interception.
•    Trey Griffey called for a personal foul. I disagree.
•    Tyrell Johnson drops a pass.
•    Another bad pass to the flat by Solomon. What is it with those throws?
•    Jeff Worthy is hurt.
•    Another six minute drive for the Utes. Utah controlling the clock.
•    Oh boy. Cayman Bundage air mails a snap and again Wildcats have to settle for three. Rich Rod NOT happy.
•    Bad angle by Allah and Britain Covey runs right by him for 46 yards.
•    Two tough plays for Davonte Neal, a pass interference and a touchdown.
•    Skowron is not a kicker. He's a football player. Another kickoff tackle.
•    Tellas takes a bad angle and Harris Handley is gone for a 59-yard score.
•    Solomon showing he's not afraid to run if he has to. I guess I'll be afraid for him.
•    Solomon great eyes to read and see the quick slant chance to Nate Phillips.
•    Drive ends on a bad throw by Solomon that is picked off in the end zone.
•    Reggie Gilbert blows up Booker and the Utes drive.
•    Cayleb showing his run after catch abilities.
•    Solomon again reads the quick slant and fires a bullet to Johnny Jackson. Anu couldn’t make that play two weeks ago.
•    Solomon scores on a designed run.
•    Tellas again sets the edge and Paul Magliore reaps the reward.
•    Solomon misses a wide open Richards.
•    On his 10th run, Solomon gets knocked out of the game. Targeting or no targeting he’s out of the game because he’s running too much.
•    Another senior makes a play, as Worthy battles back from the early injury to force a fumble.
•    Nobody blocks Utes linebacker Marcus Wiliams on a five-yard Jerrard Randall loss.
•    Now Jake Matthews is hurt and this one looks bad. Another middle linebacker gone.
•    McCall beat on another slant, but receiver drops the ball. Why you are you celebrating that? If he catches it it’s a first down.
•    Lene Maiva and Josh Kern with nice second level blocks to spring Jared Baker for 19 yards.
•    Drew Riggleman has stuck two 4th quarter punts inside the 10 yard line. Huge in terms of field position.
•    Gilbert sheds block again to stop Booker.
•    Tellas off the edge again forces Wilson to run out of bounds for the sack. What a game he’s having.
•    The Wildcats clearly took no chances on that possession with Randall. 
•    Skowron makes a clutch kick to force double overtime.
•    What a throw by Randall. Saw the safety come down in the box and read Cover 0 perfectly throwing the ball to Phillips on the seam. Great catch by Nate. Another play two weeks ago that Solomon wasn’t seeing.
•    Great job by Magliore to read the pitch and cut off the edge on Booker.
•    Utes uses Cats edge speed against them and Wilson leaks out for 12 on 4th and eight.
•    Sir Thomas Jackson and Sani Fuimaono with huge defensive sack. Sir T. on delayed blitz and Sani beats injured center Siaosi Aiono.
•    Wildcats cover up 4th down to clinch the upset.

FINAL: Arizona 37, #10 Utah 30 (2OT)
