  • ASSOCIATED PRESS

    Arizona Wildcats quarterback Anu Solomon passed the ball during the fourth quarter against Oregon at Autzen Stadium in Oct. 2014, in Eugene, Ore. Solomon, a redshirt junior, was born in Hawaii and moved to Las Vegas in junior high.

TUCSON, Ariz. » Quarterback Brandon Dawkins is expected to get the second start of his Arizona career against the University of Hawaii Saturday after the Wildcats announced today that veteran Anu Solomon is “questionable” with a knee injury.

Dawkins, a redshirt sophomore from Calif. made his starting debut last week against Grambling State when Solomon, a three-season starter and Davey O’Brien Award candidate was sidelined.

Solomon, a redshirt junior, was born in Hawaii and moved to Las Vegas in junior high. His father, Jarrett, was an all-state linebacker at Farrington in 1993.

Anu, who has started 26 games, suffered the knee injury last week in a midweek practice session and did not suit up against Grambling, wearing a brace on his left knee.

Dawkins is the more mobile of the two and ran for two touchdowns and 97 yards on 16 carries last week. He also passed for one touchdown.

The Wildcats (1-1) are listed as a 24.5-point favorite on Las Vegas betting lines.

Safety Tellas Jones is also listed as “questionable” and fullback Jamardre Cobb is listed as “out” with a knee injury.

  • Sad to say at this point if UH doesn’t fix their problems …
    A) Ikaika still has a tendency to overthrow his receivers
    B) Ikaika still throws into double/triple coverage
    C) Receivers still dropping catchable passes
    D) Defense can’t wrap up and tackle
    E) Overall very disappointing Special Teams play

    it won’t matter who Arizona starts; it won’t be pretty for
    UH …

    LIVE ALOHA / PLAY WARRIOR / DEFEND THE ROCK … GO ‘BOWS !!!!!
