College Football 2012 Schedule: Arizona and Arizona State can cement bowl cases this week

The two schools in Arizona can cement their cases for bowl bids with two winnable games this week.

Stephen Dunn

Both the Arizona Wildcats and the Arizona State Sun Devils have a good chance to help their bowl arguments this week as they take on the bottom feeders of the Pac-12.

Arizona State gets their hands at the winless-in-conference Washington State Cougars. The Cougars are one of the better passing teams in the nation under Mike Leach but the team has come under distractions after ex-receiver Marquess Wilson accused the coaches of physical, emotional and verbal abuse. The Sun Devils sit 3-4 in the Pac-12 South standings behind Arizona.

Arizona is now bowl eligible, but needs to be sure to keep winning to stay that way. The Wildcats rebounded from a 66-10 thrashing by UCLA by walloping everyone's favorite Pac-12 punching bag in Colorado. They will be heading on the road to take on a Utah team that is coming off of a 34-15 road loss against the Washington Huskies.

Elsewhere in the Pac-12 there are great games but none better than the SoCal grudge match between No. 18 USC and No. 17 UCLA.
