Game Preview

The 4-0 Arizona Wildcats are tough to beat on their home turf. Led by the impressive passing of junior QB Nick Foles to go along with an aggressive and attacking defense, this season's Wildcats are going to be difficult for any team to beat. Oregon State must bring their A-game on both sides of the ball while making some big plays on special teams. Arizona is playing with a ton of confidence right now and definitely has the horses to challenge for the Pac-10 title this season.
