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.
Arizona has closed the gap on ticket sales, but BYU has still sold more to Saturday's game per Greg Byrne
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.
Asked Rich Rod about starting QB. "Only one can take the first snap. Stay tuned for Saturday night and find out…" pic.twitter.com/eqKrNvp1Y7
Arizona's quarterback is going to be Anu Solomon. Send us, like, a million nasty tweets if we are wrong.
RichRod on starting QB: 'Stay tuned.' Adds that Anu Solomon and Brandon Dawkins could both play vs. BYU.
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 …
I love Rich Rod. pic.twitter.com/j3nFnvBGqq
BYU has the age and maturity many college teams don’t have because of their mission work.
RichRod concerned about BYU's size and ability to bring pressure on defense. 'Even their DBs are big guys.' #ArizonaWildcats
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.
