Anu Solomon to start at QB for Arizona this weekend

Anu Solomon will make his return to the field and start for the Arizona Wildcats this weekend against Oregon State. Solomon exited the team’s game against UCLA with a concussion two weeks ago and missed last week’s game against Stanford.

Solomon’s status was reported by ESPN’s Brett McMurphy.

And how welcome Solomon will be. Arizona has been outscored 111-47 its past two games, as backup Jerrard Randall just isn’t the same type of player. Solomon threw for 845 yards and 11 touchdowns with no interceptions prior to getting injured, and has completed 65.2 percent of his passes.

Arizona is also without star linebacker Scooby Wright for an extended period of time as he recovers from a foot injury, so getting one key player back in Solomon could prove to be the jolt the team needs to play dominantly over the remainder of the season.

Given how he is the unquestioned leader of the offense and Oregon State’s only wins have come against relatively cupcake teams in Weber State and San Jose State, Solomon and the Wildcats could easily look forward to a dominant win and break their losing streak on Saturday.

Kickoff is slated for 4 p.m. ET in Tuscon on Fox Sports 1.
