ESPN college football analyst Mark May was a guest on the Burns and Gambo Show on 620-AM in Phoenix on Wednesday, and the topic turned to Arizona’s game against Stanford on Saturday night.

“They’re going to get rolled. They’re going to get rolled,” May said of the Wildcats.

“I’ll tell you right now, this is a team that I said at the beginning of the season will start off 1-4, 1-5, and they’re going to struggle to make a bowl. And I don’t believe they will. I think all the pressure is going to be on Mike Stoops because I don’t think he’ll survive this. …

“Look at the way that they finished last year. They couldn’t beat an FBS football team. … You’re looking at a team that is trying to raise money to build new facilities down there. If they go out and lay an egg this year, and they’re 5-7 or something like that, do you really think that’s going to help that project?”

Arizona is a 10-point underdog for the game, which will be shown on ESPN, beginning at 7:45 p.m. Carter Blackburn will handle the play-by-play, Brock Huard will be the analyst and Shelley Smith will be the sideline reporter.
