The Arizona Wildcats will get perhaps the best defensive player in college football back for Saturday's vital matchup against UCLA. Brett McMurphy of ESPN reports that linebacker Scooby Wright, out for the past two weeks, has been upgraded to probable and is expected to play tomorrow night against the Bruins.

It remains to be seen if Wright will be 100% if he does play. I'd have to guess he'd be working his way back from a meniscus tear, so he probably will not be quite the imposing presence who terrorized the Pac-12 last season. But his mere presence would be vital for Arizona--the Wildcats defense has struggled much of the first three weeks and they will have their hands full trying to slow down one of the most veteran offensive units in the Pac-12.
