On the other hand, Arizona also can move the ball — albeit through the air.

Quarterback Jayden de Laura, a transfer from Washington State, leads a passing attack that ranks No. 7 nationally with 328 yards per game.

“He’s a gunslinger, I think he’s got a lot of toughness to him,” Kelly said. “He’s gonna run around, he’s gonna keep plays alive, he’s not afraid of throwing the ball up there. And they’ve got some receivers that will go get it, so it’s really their passing attack that gets the most of your attention.”

Arizona has three of the top 10 receivers in yardage in the Pac-12 in Jacob Cowing, Dorian Singer and Tetairoa McMillan. The Wildcats are on pace for their best single-season passing yards per game since they averaged 370.8 in 2011.
