Arizona vs. Oregon Score Update: Nick Foles, Wildcats Rallying, Cut Ducks Lead To 35-24

The Arizona Wildcats are getting flat out obliterated in Tucson. The Oregon Ducks have run all over Arizona early on thanks mostly due to the fleet feet of LaMichael James, who has piled up nearly 200 all-purpose yards in the first half. Oregon's defense has battered Nick Foles and has kept the Wildcats offense off the field.

Foles has rallied the Wildcats though with late second quarter and early third quarter scoring drives. Foles found David Douglas for 44 yards and Richard Morrison for a 34 yard strike to give Arizona their first touchdown of the game, although the extra point was blocked. Then at the start of the third quarter, a few successful Keola Antolin rushes set up Foles's passes to Morrison, Douglas and Juron Criner, and Arizona punched it in with an Antolin rushing score to cut the Oregon lead to 19.

After Oregon was forced to go three-and-out, Foles found Criner for 31 yards, then scrambled to get Douglas for 12 yards on 4th and 10. Foles then eventually found David Roberts on second-and-goal for the touchdown, and then converted the two pointer on a throw to Douglas.
