Arizona Could Go Either Way in 2024 Football Futures

Just when Arizona Wildcat fans believed that football deliverance arrived, the rug was pulled out from under them. Head coach Jedd Fisch led the Wildcats to a 10-3 record. And he produced a name-brand win over the Oklahoma Sooners in the Alamo Bowl. With a young roster of stars set to return for 2024, Fisch was believed to be poised to lead Arizona into regular contention. But Nick Saban’s retirement at Alabama set off a profound chain of events. Now Arizona faces a College Football Betting season of uncertainty. But there is enough potential for optimism.

2024 Arizona Preview

Washington coach Kalen DeBoer left for Alabama to replace Saban with Fisch taking over at Washington. Hence, Brent Brennan arrives from San Jose State to take over the Wildcats. Arizona returns the core of the squad that beat five Top 25 teams. Including Oklahoma in the Alamo Bowl. Former coach Jedd Fisch left a loaded offense and a strong defense. Correlate that is an online betting tribute to his recruiting after taking over a program that had lost 11 straight games.

Quarterback Noah Fifita is a savvy, accurate passer who made few bad decisions in his nine starts, seven of them victories. Now he needs to find a No. 2 receiver and a go-to tight end. But Colorado transfer Montana Lemonious-Craig and tight end Keyan Burnett project as capable receivers to go with All-American Tetairoa McMillan.

New coach Brent Brennan hired two elite-level coordinators. Namely, ex-Syracuse head coach Dino Babers and Duane Akina. Both of whom were part of Arizona’s historic 12-1 team of 1998 and are primed for Act II.

Sophomore quarterback Noah Fifita was the Pac-12’s Offensive Freshman of the Year. He was an off-the-bench revelation who completed a school-record 72.4 percent of his passes with 25 touchdowns against six interceptions. Consider he chose to stay in Arizona rather than join former head coach Jedd Fisch at Washington. Also, Junior receiver Tetairoa McMillan caught 90 passes for 1,402 yards, challenging school records in both categories.

Arizona’s most uncertain position is running back. Correlate that leading rusher Jonah Coleman, who gained 871 yards in the latter half of last College Football Betting season, joined Fisch at Washington. San José State transfer Quali Conley gained 842 yards for new Arizona coach Brent Brennan at SJSU.

Once upon a time, the Arizona Wildcats were a force in the Pac-12 Conference. Under legendary head coach Dick Tomey, Arizona was known for its Desert Swarm defense, which was among the nastiest in college football. In 1998, Tomey led Arizona to a 12-1 record with a final national ranking of 4th. In turn, Tomey led the Cats to Top 25 finishes four times and the greatest era in school history.
