Arizona Wildcats quarterback B.J. Denker has attempted 164 passes this season. Only two have been intercepted.
And both of those came on a wet, windy, wretched day in Seattle.
Other than that, Denker, not spectacular, has been mostly efficient, careful with the ball and is growing in confidence as the 4-2 Wildcats hit the midpoint of the season.
He has completed 46 of 74 passes (62.2 percent) for 531 yards, with five touchdowns and no interceptions, in the past two games — a 38-31 loss at USC and a 35-24 win over Utah.
Coach Rich Rodriguez said after the Utah game he saw a boost in Denker’s confidence starting in the second half of the USC game and carrying through practice last week.
“I saw it all week probably for the first time to the level we expect it from our starting quarterback, where he is telling us what to see, he’s telling wide receivers adjustments,” Rodriguez said. “B.J. is a sharp guy.”
