TUCSON, AZ -

A week after struggling in a loss to Houston, Arizona quarterback Brandon Dawkins accounted for six touchdowns in a 63-16 victory over UTEP in the UA's non-conference finale.

Our David Kelly and UA tight end Glenn Howell ('85) are back for a seventh season of Wildcat Breakdown on FOX 11 Tucson.

This week the guys dive into what they liked about Dawkins' performance, just how good was UA running the football, the emergence of the tight end passing game, Colin Schooler's break out night at middle linebacker and the move of Dane Cruikshank from cornerback to safety.

The pair began their relationship of analyzing the Cats in 2010 when D.K. was the anchor of the Arizona Wildcats Radio Network and Howell was a TV sideline reporter for the UA football games produced by Arizona IMG College.

Howell, a local fitness professional, appears every Friday (or the night before a game) during the season for Wildcat Preview as he and Kelly get you set for the upcoming UA contest and then again on Breakdown each Sunday where the duo recap the highs and lows from the recently completed Cats affair.

Conference media has picked UA to finish 6th in the Pac-12’s South Division. The same place the Cats finished a year ago when they went 1-7.
