Ryan Wohl: 4-7
After watching this revamped Wildcat football team practice for the past few months, I quickly realized that this group is different from the last two seasons. The QB group struggled last year but that will be different after the addition of two talented players in Washington State transfer Jayden de Laura and newcomer Noah Fifita. Arizona has had good matchups in the first five weeks of the season, three of them in Tucson. They’re currently 6-point underdogs against San Diego State in week one and if they can pull off the excitement it’ll be huge because Mississippi State comes to town from the SEC in week two. I believe they will end the year with four wins, which is a big step in the right direction after winning just one game in the last two seasons.
Jason Dayee: 7-5
As we enter a new season for Wildcat Football, here are my predictions for the upcoming season. With our newly assembled team and some returning players, I believe this team has a chance to make some serious noise at the Pac-12. The Wildcats open their season away at San Diego State, which is always an impressive team. I think the Wildcats will lose that first game and start the season 0-1. Their next four games are against Mississippi State, North Dakota State, University of California, Berkeley and University of Colorado at Boulder. I believe the Wildcats split those four games and are 2-3 after their first five games of the season. As I’ve mentioned before, I believe this is the year the Wildcats can make some serious noise in the Pac-12, and while I anticipate they will get off to a slow start early in the season, I also believe that they will turn things up again level in the second half of the season.
The Wildcat’s next five games are against the University of Oregon, University of Washington, USC, University of Utah and UCLA. As most football fans know, these are some of the best football schools in the Pac-12, but I believe this is the year that the Arizona Wildcats will stand out from the crowd. I predict the Wildcats will go 4-1 in this five-game stretch and now go 6-4 into their final game of the season against ASU. As many Arizona students know, this game is always personal for both schools, and recently ASU has beaten the Arizona Wildcats, but I believe that ends this season. I predict the Wildcats end their regular season with a bang, beating ASU here at home. They end their season with a 7-5 record, which is a huge improvement from our 1-9 record last season.
Cole Johnson: 7-5
My winning prediction for the Wildcats next season is a bowl game win by a 7-5 record. I believe Jayden de Laura will boast 25+ touchdowns spread across the three main receivers and opponents like Drake Anderson in his sophomore season.
Delaney Penn: 7-5
I think it’s going to be a year full of ups and downs. I predict Arizona will win seven games and lose five this season. Their toughest game will be against the University of Southern California. I think they will dominate against North Dakota State University. With all the new top recruits added to the roster, I believe they will play an important role in their overall tally.
Alex Arm: 4-8
An improved depth chart, aided by Jedd Fisch’s acquisitions in the transfer portal, will make a noticeable difference to the 2021 squad. Sophomore QB Jayden de Laura will also try to stabilize Arizona’s offense after transferring from Washington state. My prediction is they will win against San Diego State, North Dakota State, Colorado and ASU.
