The Pac-12 South title could be on the line when Arizona travels to Pasadena to take on UCLA.
By upsetting USC last week, Arizona put itself in good position to reach the Pac-12 Championship Game despite a three-game losing streak earlier in the season. With UCLA and Arizona State still on the schedule, the Wildcats only need a little bit of help to win the division.
Meanwhile, UCLA already controls its own destiny for the Rose Bowl after defeating Arizona State 45-43 last week.
These teams are proof that the depth of the Pac-12 is as good as almost any conference in football, and this game should be a highly entertaining battle throughout.

Spread (via ESPN): Even
Arizona turned more heads with its win over USC, but UCLA was just as impressive on the road against Arizona State.
Both teams look to take that momentum into the next game and it should be a highly competitive contest.
UCLA is playing at home, and that alone should give the Bruins a slight nod in the upcoming game.

What's At Stake?
UCLA is already bowl eligible with six wins, while Arizona needs only one more to reach that plateau. However, both squads are looking for more out of the year.
Whichever team loses this game will probably fall out of contention in the Pac-12 standings, while the winner will take charge as one of the teams to beat in the South division.
The schedule gets much easier for the Wildcats after this game, but they first must focus on the task at hand.
Arizona Player to Watch: Austin Hill, WR
Austin Hill might not have gotten into the end zone in last week's game against USC, but he was one of the major reasons that Arizona was able to pull off the upset.
The sophomore finished with 259 receiving yards on 10 catches. This was only his fifth career game over the century mark, but he had over 200 yards more than the next-most on the team.
Overall, the receiver is fifth in the nation with 937 receiving yards and seven touchdowns.
He might not have another game like he did last week, but the Wildcats need him to remain productive to come out with a win.
UCLA Player to Watch: Johnathan Franklin, RB
The senior running back continues to torch opposing defenses this season and is now over the 1,000-yard mark for the second time in his career.
Franklin is currently eighth in the nation with 1,042 rushing yards and trails only Northern Illinois quarterback Jordan Lynch in yards per carry among players with at least 150 rushing attempts.
Oregon State was the only team to slow down Franklin this season, as he finished with only 45 yards on 12 carries. That performance resulted in a 27-20 loss to the Beavers.
UCLA cannot afford another bad game from the running back if it wants to keep winning.
Prediction: UCLA 38, Arizona 35
Arizona has had a hard time stopping anyone this season. The Wildcats have allowed opponents to score over 35 points in five of their eight games.
The Bruins have a very balanced attack on offense and should be able to pull out the close win at home.
