The University of Arizona Wildcats versus the Oregon State University Beavers
Arizona Stadium: Time TBA
Oregon State Facts: Remember the Dick Tomey days when it seemed like every season the Cats would finish in third or fourth place? Well that's what it's been like for the Beavs since they went from a nobody to a somebody in 2000. Since 2002 OSU has been to the Insight Bowl twice, plus the Vegas, Sun, and Emerald bowls. Who would have thought Oregon State and Arizona would switch places like that.
Good Cat News: Another home game in November allows Arizona to play at home, rather then having to play in Corvallis, another one of the most brutal places to play in the Pac-10. The Beaves only bring back three starts from last year defense which make Arizona look bad, in the mean time Arizona's offence should be much better.
Bad Cat News: Oregon State has had Arizona's number over the last few years. Arizona is going to have to make sure to change that. Can they do it? Not sure. The only other team to dominate over the Stoop years the way the Beavers have (besides USC) are the Sun Devils. And we'll get to them tomorrow.
