Wolfpack, Wildcats look to stay undefeated

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) Arizona's coaches had two chances to see how their team responds to the pressure of a live game.

The Wildcats should get a tougher test against Nevada Saturday night at Arizona Stadium.

Arizona opened the season with a blowout over UNLV and grinded out a victory over Texas-San Antonio in the noisy Alamodome last week.

Nevada has a difficult offense to defend and has been stingy on defense, limiting opponents to one touchdown in seven trips to the red zone the first two weeks.

The Wolfpack head to Tucson undefeated after beating two spread teams, Southern Utah and Washington State.
