UA did not get a turnover in their 18-16 season-opening loss to BYU.
Takeaways are a must for the Wildcats to have success in 2016.
Senior safety Jarvis McCall came the closest to getting a takeaway for Arizona in Glendale when he had a chance to intercept a Taysom Hill second quarter pass in the end zone.
McCall was able to get one hand on the ball and knock it to the ground, but his inability to secure the ball allowed the Cougars to kick a field goal and gain three points in a game they would end up winning by two.
The senior played in 24 games the last two seasons for the Wildcats, making 17 starts and totaling 77 tackles.
His lone interception for UA came in the team’s New Mexico Bowl win over New Mexico.
McCall this season has shifted over to free safety from cornerback where he opened the season as the starter.
Our David Kelly caught up with McCall and defensive coordinator Marcel Yates to talk about the interception that almost was in the Cactus Kickoff Classic
