Two teams who are winless in the PAC 12 conference take to the field on Saturday as Mike Stoops brings his Arizona Wildcats north for a showdown in Corvallis. Desperation is in the air as both teams need a win.
Here's how the position groups match up heading into Saturday's 12:30pm PT kick off.
Arizona quarterback Nick Foles is having a great season despite his teams record. The senior is quickly climbing the Arizona all-time passing record list and through five games this season is 170-236 for 1877 yards, 14 touchdowns and two interceptions.
