Wildcats, Buckeyes both looking for backs, QB play
A week after defeating Utah, 17-3, the Arizona football team will face another early-season challenge when No. 16 Ohio State comes to Arizona Stadium Saturday night.
Both teams seemed to mirror each other in the season's first week. Loaded with defensive power and searching for a running back to follow a departed starter, both the Buckeyes and Wildcats will enter Saturday's game with questions to answer.
Both UA and OSU - along with Virginia Tech - are atop the country with a plus-5 turnover ratio.
"Both teams are leading the nation in take-away and turnover ratio," UA head coach Dick Tomey said. "At the end of next week, somebody's not going to be."
OSU, one of the country's football powerhouses, is notorious for a hard-hitting defense and a "grind-it-out" style of football.
