Arizona vs. Washington: MarkRogersTV Weekly Pac-12 podcast with ZonaZealots

The Arizona Wildcats take on the No. 9 ranked Washington Huskies at home on Saturday in their first Pac-12 conference game

Everyone knows that the Washington Huskies are nationally ranked (No. 9) and predicted to be Pac-12 North champion. The Huskies are a great team with a ton of promise. They have been picked by Mark Rogers to make go far and play into January.

My cousin Dennis, a U-Dubb graduate and die hard Washington fan, wanted me to tell Wildcats fans what he thinks, “This would be the first true test for both teams this season. If I was a fan of someone playing the huskies I would be worried about the discipline of a Peterson team.” Don’t think we aren’t worried, Dennis, we just don’t want to talk about it!

Better yet, we spoke with both Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez and Washington Coach Chris Peterson this week, and I’ll give you a taste of what they both told me.

Also, we will predict the winner and what I hope will be the outcome of the game. And yes, there is a difference.
