Andrew Fielding-US PRESSWIRE

Arizona Wildcats quarterback Matt Scott is questionable for this weekend's game against the Colorado Buffaloes, the Denver Post reports. Wildcats coach Rich Rodriguez confirmed his quarterback suffered a concussion in the team's 66-10 win at UCLA last weekend.

Scott has led the Wildcats (5-4, 2-4 Pac-12) to the nation's 10-ranked offense this season with 520.7 yards per game. The Wildcats are also eighth in the country with 330.1 yards passing per game. Scott, a senior, ranks fifth in the Pac-12 in passing with a 137.1 rating. He's completed 242 of 386 passes (a .627 percentage) for 2,848 yards with 20 touchdowns and 9 interceptions.

The Buffaloes could use the break of catching a team without its starting quarterback. Colorado's pass defense has struggled, allowing 293.1 yards per game, 110th in the nation.

Colorado (1-8, 1-5) and Arizona kick off at 11:30 a.m. MT on Saturday. The game will be televised by FX.
