North Dakota State vs Arizona Week 3 Game Info

2022 NCAA College Football Game
North Dakota State Bison (2-0) vs. Arizona Wildcats (1-1)
Date: Saturday, Sept. 17, 2022
Time: 11 p.m. ET
Venue: Arizona Stadium — Tucson, AZ
Coverage: FS1

Week 3 of the 2022 NCAA college football season includes a showdown between the North Dakota State Bison and Arizona Wildcats. Momentum is on the Bison's side after their one-sided 43-3 victory over North Carolina A&T last week that saw the defense hold the Aggies to 189 total offensive yards.

Unfortunately, Arizona didn't have the same Week 2 experience, instead losing, 39-17, to Mississippi State. If the Wildcats want to win this time around, they need a better performance from quarterback Jayden de Laura, who threw three interceptions in the loss.

North Dakota State enters this contest as the favorite on the spread. This 11 p.m. ET clash also features a total of 48.5, which is on the average side compared to the rest of this week's college football projected totals.

North Dakota State vs Arizona Prediction & Pick

FCS powerhouse North Dakota State has a terrific opportunity to take advantage of a slumping Arizona squad. The Wildcats have come up short more often than not lately, losing 18 of their last 20 outings. Adding insult to injury, Arizona is 1-11 in its last 12 games in its home stadium.

Logically, this is a game that the Wildcats should win. The Bison haven't played an FBS school in about six years, so it's been quite some time since they've seen real competition. I expect de Laura and the offense to have a bounce-back performance, giving Arizona the upset win.

Final Score Prediction: Arizona: 28 | North Dakota State: 23

North Dakota State vs Arizona Best Bet

All NCAAF betting lines, odds and prop bets are available on FanDuel Sportsbook.

Since I'm predicting Arizona to win, the most playable bet is to take the Wildcats at +115 on the moneyline. They're a better team than they showed against Mississippi State last week and while North Dakota State is solid, the Bison will get a reminder of how tough FBS opponents can be.

Bet: Arizona Outright (+115)
