No. 22 Arizona (5-3, 2-3 Pac-12) Next » 11 of 12 « Prev
Last week: Won vs USC 39-36

Arizona QB Matt Scott ran for 100 yards and got Arizona's comeback started with a 10-yard touchdown run late in the third quarter. He threw for 369 yards, 259 of that on 10 catches by Austin Hill, and finished 27-for-50 passing.

Scott capped his day with his third touchdown pass, a 7-yarder to David Richards that put Arizona up 39-28 with just more than five minutes left. He was wobbly and unable to play on Arizona's final possession after taking a hard hit, but had already done enough to give the Wildcats their biggest win of the year.

USC's Matt Barkley put up big numbers, matching Carson Palmer's school record for 400-yard games with his third, throwing for 493 yards and three touchdowns on 31-of-49 passing. USC finished with 618 total yards and pulled within three on Silas Redd's 10-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter, but couldn't overcome five turnovers -- two on interceptions by Barkley -- and 13 penalties for 117 yards.
