Anu Solomon looks so poised, does he not? Marcus Mariota most be proud of the fellow Hawaiian quarterback.

I will go on a very strong limb and say this will be the best offensive team in Arizona’s history with its assemblage of talent, topping the 2012 mark of 526.2 yards per game.

Arizona’s defense was opportunistic, making the plays when it had to, including an interception and two pass breakups by junior safety Will Parks.

Nick Wilson, another freshman standout, showed power and breakaway speed on this touchdown run

One question mark for Arizona heading into the Texas-San Antonio game Thursday at the Alamodome: The Wildcats’ pressure on the quarterback, or lack thereof. Arizona had only one sack (by Scooby Wright III) and no quarterback hurries.

Some encouragement from Cincinnati rookie Marquis Flowers, who watched Arizona play its first game without him in four seasons at linebacker.

Former Arizona receiver Garic Wharton, a Las Vegas product who would have been a senior this year but opted to leave school, has kept an allegiance.

Jennie Finch is forever a Wildcat supporter for all sports apparently.

Cayleb Jones, a Texas transfer, had three receptions for 30 yards in his Arizona debut. He was not the primary target, but he was one of an amazing 10 that Solomon passed to last night.

Nick Foles offers his approval from Philadelphia.

Pittsburgh rookie cornerback Shaq Richardson also watched as he was not with the Wildcats for the first time in four years.
