Arizona fell to USC 49-35 last Saturday and lost its chance to take sole possession of first place in the Pac-12 South.
Khalil Tate rushed for 161 yards, which put him over the 1,000-yard mark, something that has never been accomplished in Pac-12 history.
Tate struggled in the passing game throwing two interceptions and 146 yards, his lowest since taking over the starting quarterback role. Now the Wildcats are 6-3 and turn to an Oregon State team that still doesn't have a conference win and is last in the Pac-12.
This week's matchup with the Beavers is senior night and kickoff is set for 8:15 p.m. so that means we get another episode of Pac-12 after dark.
Arizona head coach Rich Rodriguez held a press conference Monday. Here are the best things Rodriguez said:
