Record: 5-4, 2-4 Pac-12

Last week: Lost at home vs. UCLA, 66-10

Arizona, a team that ranked 110th nationally in total defense before this game, certainly didn't do much to help their defensive game. They allowed UCLA to run, pass and kick all over them in their most lopsided loss of the season.

Wildcats head coach Rich Rodriguez said he was embarrassed by his team's performance. Ka'Deem Carey, the nation's 12th-best rusher, was held to 54 yards on 16 carries. Before Arizona even had managed to get a first down, UCLA had put them into a 21-0 hole.

To make matters worse, Arizona linebacker Hank Hobson was carted off the field in the fourth quarter with a serious injury and taken to a local hospital. Rodriguez said he has movement in his arms and legs, but as of the game's end didn't have any idea on Hobson's diagnosis. Additionally, Arizona QB Matt Scott got his bell rung halfway through the third quarter, had to leave the game and didn't return. Initial reports were concussion-like symptoms. As of yet it's unclear if he will play in Arizona's next game, but Rodriguez said he'd be OK.

Fortunately, things will get a little easier for them next week.

Next up: Saturday, Nov. 10 vs. Colorado

Who edits this? USC's loss was in LA, not Eugene, and UCLA was the one ranked 22nd heading into their game against Arizona, not the wildcats.
