UNDATED (AP) - Both Washington and Washington State will be big underdogs on Saturday when they go on the road for Pac-10 football games. The 1-4 Cougars are listed as 17-point underdogs against 1-3 UCLA at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif., at 7:15 p.m. while the 0-4 Huskies are 20 1/2-point underdogs against 3-1 Arizona in Tucson, Ariz., at 4:30 p.m. Both Washington and Washington State are off to 0-2 starts in Pac-10 play this season. The Cougars are coming off a 63-14 loss against Oregon at home last week, while the Huskies are trying to regroup after losing 35-28 to Stanford at home in a game in which they lost their star starting quarterback, sophomore Jake Locker, for 6-8 weeks with a broken right thumb. Redshirt freshman Ronnie Fouch will start at quarterback for Washington at Tucson. In Seattle last season, Arizona scored 22 points in the final quarter to overcome a 41-26 fourth-quarter deficit and beat Washington 48-41. In Pullman last season, Washington State broke open a close game in the fourth quarter to defeat UCLA 27-7. The Cougars have dominated the UCLA series of late, winning six of the last seven, with the only defeat against the Bruins coming in overtime in 2005 in Pullman.
