The Wildcats gave up an awfully lot of yardage in their opener and the margin of 10 points was way too low for a team who was favored by 33 points. The Wolfpack looked okay in their season opener even if it was against lowly UC Davis and should improve in their second game. They have met Arizona twice in the last 3 years and got the cover in both including a 7-point loss lat season on the road.
