Arizona fights back but falls short against BYU 24-16

The Arizona Wildcats fell 24-16 to BYU on Saturday night in Las Vegas. It was the UA’s 13th consecutive loss, extending their school-record losing streak and the longest active skid in FBS.

But unlike many of the previous 12 setbacks under Kevin Sumlin, the UA showed flashes of being a team that could be competitive down the line. Maybe a lot sooner than expected.

Arizona’s defense, which had yielded 40.2 points per game during the prior dozen outings, looked like a completely different unit outside of a few busted plays and was key to getting the UA back into the game after it trailed 21-3 midway through the second half. The Wildcats recorded eight tackles for loss, a sack and four pass breakups as well as a safety, holding BYU to 370 yards.
