Arizona shocks the college football world, beating Oregon 42-16

TUCSON, AZ - Junior running back Ka'Deem Carey ran for 206 yards on 48 carries and scored four touchdowns as the Arizona Wildcats shocked the Oregon Ducks in Tucson. Arizona (7-4, 4-4 Pac-12) beat up on Oregon 42-16.

Carey set school records in both career rushing yards and touchdowns as the Wildcats beat a team ranked in the Top Five for the first time since 2007.

Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota threw his first interception all season on the Ducks first play from scrimmage, and Arizona jumped out to a quick 14-0 lead.

Oregon (9-2, 6-2 Pac-12) turned the ball over three times, as Arizona ended the Ducks' hopes of a national championship.

Coming off a disappointing loss at home last weekend to Washington State, the Wildcats took control early and never let up, giving the Ducks all they could handle for the entire game.

Carey finished with 206 yards rushing on 48 carries with four touchdowns, while quarterback B.J. Denker threw for 178 yards and two touchdowns.

The Ducks finished with 506 yards of offense but just couldn't find the end zone. Arizona wrapped up the game with 485 yards of offense, with 307 yards rushing.

The Wildcats win over Oregon gives Arizona State hope in the chase for its first Pac-12 Championship. If ASU can get a win over UCLA, there's a chance the Sun Devils could host the Pac-12 Title game in early December.
