Talk About The Arizona Game

This is a video of Arizona's 3rd quarter explosion against Cal a month ago.  It's the main reason why everyone has been so afraid of Arizona this year.  I don't really have time to watch it or write anything interesting about it or Arizona Football in general, so I was kind of hoping that maybe someone could pitch in with a little insight?  Maybe some amateurish statistical analysis of how their season has been going?  Anything helps.  Thanks.

Alright, fine.  Here's a little statistical comparison with relatively good stats in bold, and relatively bad stats underlined in italics.  What you'll notice is that Arizona is like a bizarro Oregon State.  They have nearly identical stats in: rushing yards per attempt, passing yards per attempt, passer rating, scoring defense, time of possession, 3rd down conversion, 1st downs, etc.  I mean, the stats are so similar that it's crazy.  Arizona has better kicking and punting and, surprisingly, they are penalized less frequently.  OSU fumbles quite a bit less, has a better rushing defense, redzone defense (an area where Arizona is horrible).

It's kind of crazy...
