Oregon has two games left on the schedule and must win both to host the Pac 12 Championship Game on December 7th. Arizona would like nothing more than to, again play the Ducks close at home and pull out a victory. One thing we may see today is Oregon QB Marcus Mariota using his feet to get some ground game yardage. He says that his MCL Sprain is close to 100 percent recovered. He has not ‘taken off’ when he has had the chance over the last few weeks. It is not known if it was due to the Defensive Coverage he was seeing or he was hampered from the injury.
For Arizona it is Senior Day with 17 Seniors playing in their final game in Tucson, which should be emotional and have the crowd into this game early. One man is the difference for Arizona. Running Back Ka’Deem Carey is one to watch. He now has 13 consecutive games with 100+ yards or more going back to last season and scored twice last week in the loss to Washington State. Like 2009 the Ducks may have to fight for this one, but likely not to the end as the did then. Oregon’s Offense and Stifling Defense should be able to handle the Wildcats.
The Oregon Ducks will be sporting white/gray uniforms and silver helmets for the game today. Kickoff is set for 12:30 on ABC/ESPN2. Here is a look at our coverage from This Week and What others are saying about the matchup.
