They're normally referred to as "cupcakes," or "creampuffs." They're the games that litter major-conference teams' non-conference schedules, and this season, Arizona had two of them. In the first one, against Northern Arizona, the Wildcats did what they were supposed to do: put up big numbers on offense, pitch a near-shutout on defense, play scrubs most of the second half.
In the second, against North Texas ÷ a better team than the Lumberjacks, but a presumed pushover, nonetheless ÷ the Wildcats did the opposite. The offense was miserable, the defense porous, and the scrubs played, but because the starters either got injured or benched.
