The second-ranked Oregon Ducks come out of a bye week with the undefeated Arizona Wildcats ready to challenge them in a Pac-12 Conference showdown at Autzen Stadium on Thursday night.
While Oregon is usually undefeated this early in the season, the same cannot be said for Arizona. The Wildcats have not gone 4-0 since 2010. Doing so wasn't easy as it took a last-second Hail Mary from Anu Solomon to Austin Hill to earn them a 49-45 come-from-behind win over California last time out.
"I think this game showed that no matter how far behind we are, we have the maturity to pick ourselves up and learn from the mistakes during the game so we can make big plays and come back to get the win," Hill said after the victory. "It was a great team effort tonight."
What a mess in Michigan

Oh, how the mighty can fall.
Last weekend, during Michigan's 30-14 loss to Big Ten Conference opponent Minnesota, Wolverines sophomore quarterback Shane Morris was blasted by Gophers defensive lineman Theiren Cockran following a rollout throw. The hit to Morris' chin knocked him immediately to the ground and caused some visible damage to the quarterback, who got up slowly and seemed to stumble while making his way back to the huddle.
After remaining in the game for one more play, Morris needed the assistance of several players to get off the field back to the sideline.
