TUCSON, Ariz. -- Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez came off the practice field on Tuesday still upset that his players hadn't done enough and were not properly getting ready for Saturday's showdown with No. 16 Washington at Husky Stadium. Arizona, 3-0, is coming off a bye week.
How'd they react to his tongue-lashing?
"I don't care," Rodriguez said. "It's more important how they react on Saturday."
Now that the warm-up acts are over, Arizona will find out just how good it is -- or isn't -- when it faces the much-improved Huskies, a team UA defeated 52-17 a season ago.
Revenge for the Huskies?
"That's all overrated," Rodriguez said. "That may help with motivation in the offseason, but once the ball is kicked in a game, last year is the last thing on anyone's mind."
Kickoff is at 4 p.m. in a game that will be nationally televised for FOX.

BEST OF MAXIM
Steve Sarkisian's decision to have Washington follow the trend of playing offense as fast as possible can be traced somewhat to what happened last year in Tucson.
Arizona didn't just blow out the Huskies in a 52-17 thumping. Washington experienced firsthand just how physically exhausting it can be trying to keep up with skilled playmakers in a high-tempo offense.
Back in July, we showed you a leaked photo of gold chrome helmets for the Washington Huskies that basically set the world on fire. They were shiny, they were sleek, and they were way different than any other lids that Washington has donned before:

Avg Points Allowed
With wind and rain wreaking havoc throughout Husky Stadium on Saturday night, Washington coach Steve Sarkisian turned to the ground game and running back Bishop Sankey time and time again.
Sankey had carried just four times last week in a blowout win over Idaho State. Against Arizona, Sarkisian put the game on Sankey's back.

SEATTLE (AP) -- Bishop Sankey carried a school-record 40 times for 161 yards and a touchdown and Keith Price threw for two touchdowns to help No. 16 Washington beat Arizona 31-13 on Saturday night.
Sankey outperformed Arizona's Ka'Deem Carey, the NCAA's leading rusher in 2012. Sankey surpassed the school record of 38 carries set by Corey Dillon in 1996 against Washington...
