The Oregon Ducks take on the Arizona Wildcats on Saturday as they try to move one step closer to the Pac-12 championship.

The Oregon Ducks will travel to the desert on Saturday to face the reeling Arizona Wildcats in a big Pac-12 matchup for both teams.

The Wildcats have lost their last two games after a solid 6-3 start. They played tough against UCLA in a 31-26 loss but are coming off a 24-17 home loss to Washington State last week.

The Ducks bounced back from their only loss of the season with a 44-21 win over the Utah Utes in Eugene on Saturday. Oregon struggled early and was only leading 17-7 at the half. After the Utes cut the lead to 17-14 early in the third quarter, the Ducks responded immediately when running back De'Anthony Thomas returned the kickoff 86 yards for a touchdown.

The Ducks scored on three of the next four possessions to blow the game wide open. 

Oregon now controls its own destiny as it looks for its fourth Pac-12 championship since 2009. A win over Arizona would leave the Ducks needing just a win over Oregon State to secure home field in the Pac-12 championship game.
