The Ducks (8-2, 6-1) are the league’s only remaining team with one loss in conference play, and they would secure a spot in Pasadena by beating the Wildcats and rival Oregon State. Oregon can make sure the Pac-10 race stays very simple with a win at Arizona on Saturday.

But Arizona (6-3, 4-2) is one of three clubs – along with Stanford and Oregon State – with two Pac-10 defeats, and the Wildcats could also secure their first trip to the Rose Bowl with wins in their final three games. They visit Arizona State and USC after Saturday’s contest.

The Wildcats also likely need to improve their offense if they hope to keep up with the Ducks. Arizona averaged 37.6 points in its first five Pac-10 games before struggling against Cal, totaling season lows in points and rushing yards (73) as starting running back Nic Grigsby was sidelined with a shoulder problem.

Quarterback Nick Foles attempted 41 passes but threw for just 201 yards, his third straight game under 250 after he averaged nearly 400 in meetings with Washington and Stanford in October.

It’s possible Grigsby could return Saturday and the Wildcats also could benefit from playing at home, where they’re 5-0. Oregon lost 34-24 in Tucson on Nov. 15, 2007, but Masoli accounted for 387 yards and five touchdowns in the Ducks’ 55-45 home win last year. The Ducks, seeking their first Rose Bowl bid since 1995, also have a major threat in junior quarterback Jeremiah Masoli, who has run for nine touchdowns and thrown for 11 while leading an offense that averages 37.1 points – ninth-best nationally.

Take Oregon on the road.
