        With rain and temperatures of mid-40s predicted for tomorrow, which team does it benefit/hurt more? Will it hurt UA more because they’re primarily a passing team? We’re not that pass-heavy, but can we rely more on the running game than we usually do? What about the crowd factor? Will the cold and rain take the fans out of it (I certainly hope not! I’ll be there cheering on as loud as ever). Overall, I feel the weather is a slight advantage for us because we’re relatively more balanced on the O, and we also have a better D than UA.
        What’re your thoughts?

        I think a slight advantage may be simply that Arizona may not be used to the colder temps combined with elevation.

        Whoever can run it most effectively.

        Weather can be a great equalizer due to turnovers. The worse the weather, the better chance U of A has in my opinion.

        I don’t think anything will help that Zona defense. If anything forcing Utah to rush the ball hurts Zona front seven.
        But turnovers can equalize a lot of things as it has been said.
