It's a bye week, but that didn't stop Justin Spears, Ryan Finley and Michael Lev from getting back into the studio for another podcast. In this episode, the guys rehash Arizona's performance against Texas Tech, including the improved Wildcats defense. Is having linebackers Anthony Pandy, Colin Schooler and Tony Fields on the field at the same time the solution for the UA? Plus, does the emergence of Patrick Mahomes, Lamar Jackson and Deshaun Watson help quarterback Khalil Tate land a spot on an NFL roster? Don't forget about Pac-12 Pick 'Ems!
