Game Week social media reactions: Arizona Wildcats vs. BYU


The latest masterpiece by the Arizona Digital Gurus … Another Goosebump Production …

I think you can blame the 7:30 p.m. start for this and many Tucsonans not wanting to drive back home so late. Many, many, many BYU fans live in the Mesa area especially.

Rivalry within the game …

BYU fans coming into the game with kind of a swagger.

Would be a shocker if Anu Solomon doesn’t start after starting most of the last two years but Rich Rod has shuffled quarterbacks before, most notably at Michigan.

University of Phoenix Stadium is not Arizona’s “house” but you get the point. Football is almost here.

I thought I saw this during the Olympics …

BYU has the age and maturity many college teams don’t have because of their mission work.

In my mind, the name that sticks out the most is that of Khalil Tate, who in two years will have Arizona fans saying in disbelief, “Remember when he was listed as fourth-string?”

Average age of BYU’s team captains (Taysom Hill, Jamaal Williams, Harvey Langi and Kai Nacua)? It is 22.5 years. Hill, BYU’s starting quarterback, is 25, Williams is 21, Langi is 23 and Nacua is 21. All seniors.

Former BYU quarterback great back coaching at his school.

Both schools counting down to kickoff in their own way. publisher, writer and editor Javier Morales is a former Arizona Press Club award winner.
