The Wildcats (4-1, 1-1 Pac-10), in the top 10 for the first time since the 1999 preseason rankings, never led to a loss that dampened their hopes for the school’s first trip to the Rose Bowl. Nick The Wildcats’ Foles completed 35 of 46 for 440 yards and three touchdowns.
Oregon State (3-2, 2-0) lost leading receiver James Rodgers to a knee injury in the second quarter. He was in street clothes on crutches in the second half after seven receptions for 102 yards, including a 33-yard score the Beavers’ first.
From 12 yards Foles’ Kelo touchdown pass Antolin cut the lead to 29-27 with 1:52 to play, but Oregon State recovered an attempt to kick in later game. Arizona had the ball at its own 20 with two seconds left and tried to use a short pass and a series of laterals to score. But Antolin was stopped in the middle of the field to finish fifth straight win at Oregon State in Tucson.

But was overtaken by Adam Hall Arizona crossing into the end zone, dropped in pain. He was helped off the field with no weight on his left knee. The score was called back for a receiver downfield penalty illegal.
Foles connected on touchdown passes of 45 yards, 33 and 12, but Katz hit him the whole way. The technical staff of the State of Oregon was held down when Katz opened his first season as a starter, but has been unleashed in the first two games of Pac-10.
