The Wildcats have a golden opportunity to take control of the Pac-12 South race on Saturday.
The Arizona Wildcats will look to continue their hot streak as they face the UCLA Bruins on Saturday. The Wildcats sputtered to an 0-3 start in conference play, but have since come back with consecutive wins over Washington and USC to get themselves back in contention for the division title and a trip to the Pac-12 championship game.
Arizona can take control of their own destiny for the Rose Bowl with a win and a little help on Saturday. If Oregon beats USC and the Wildcats take down UCLA, Arizona will be guaranteed a spot in the league title game if they win out. With Colorado, Utah, and ASU left on the schedule after Saturday, that could be a very real possibility.
UCLA provides a significant road block. The Bruins have a solid offense for the first time in year behind freshman quarterback Brett Hundley and stud running back Johnathan Franklin. The Bruins took down ASU last weekend on a last-second field goal. UCLA currently is in control of the division race, and can also earn a spot in the Pac-12 title game if they win out.
Game time, TV schedule: 8:30 p.m. PT, Pac-12 Networks
Spread: UCLA favored by 3 1/2.
