The first half of the Arizona Wildcats’ season was marked by an upset victory, a pair of heartbreaking losses and enough promise to portend better things.

The UA will take on Washington at 7 p.m. tonight at Arizona Stadium, the first in a string of winnable games against Pac-12 Conference opponents.
Four of the Wildcats’ final six games will be played at home, and at least three of them — tonight, Arizona’s Nov. 10 game against Utah and the Nov. 23 rivalry game with Arizona State — seem, on paper, winnable.

Hold down the homefront over the next six weeks, and Arizona can turn its season around. It’s that simple.
