— The UA lost the turnover battle for the first time this season with two interceptions by B.J. Denker to one by Washington quarterback Keith Price. Denker’s streak of 80 consecutive passes without an interception was immediately snapped on his first pass during UA’s initial drive.

— The Wildcats had a season-low four plays that netted 12 yards or more. The longest play was Denker’s 33-yard run late in the first half on a fourth-and-2 situation.

— Arizona managed four drives of at least eight plays, in succession, but only scored two touchdowns off of them. The last two ended on downs and a Denker interception in the fourth quarter.

— Arizona did not limit Washington’s offense to a three-downs-and-out situation the entire game.

— The Wildcats’ kickoff coverage team tracked down a returner inside the 20-yard line for the seventh time this season.

HELMET STICKER CRITERIA

The Wildcats earn cat claws for the Arizona helmet if they achieve these following marks. This grading system is stringent. The Wildcats must achieve their goal. If it states the UA must achieve “more than” a certain mark, they must pass that mark. This helmet will be updated weekly as the Wildcats attempt to fill the helmet with the cat claws:
