It'll be the quarterback who may go number one in the NFL draft against the quarterback who's trying not to be a one hit wonder.

Arizona's Khalil Tate is coming off a 327 yard rushing performance in a win at Colorado. Now, he'll try for an encore performance at home against UCLA on family weekened.

"I'm just oing to keep on being myself," Tate said.  "Keep on making the right reads. Really, just being a leader and putting my team in the best position to win. Anytime I'm on the field, I'm trying to score when I touch the ball."

Tate's first collegiate appearance was against UCLA last October 1st. His only start came two weeks later as a 17-year old true freshman against USC on October 15, 2016.

Meanwhile, UCLA's Josh Rosen comes into the game with 17 touchdown passes against just five interceptions.

"There's no question he's a top NFL draft-pick," said Arizona head coach Rich Rodriguez. "I've been impressed with his toughness. You hear about his intelligence. A guy that can throw like that is always going to give you a shot."

UCLA has won the last five meetings in the series.
