Arizona stuns ASU in Tempe, 31-27

Even though Arizona is a disappointing 3-8, nothing is more disappointing than losing the Territorial Cup to your arch-rivals. The Sun devils let up the Territorial Cup to the Wildcats as they also let up a 10 point lead in the 4th quarter. The Sun devils fell behind early but regained the lead at 27-17. The most penalized team in the PAC 12 had many personal foul penalties even though they played at Sun devil Stadium. Nick Foles passed a TD to GinoCrump to pull within three at 10 minutes in the 4th quarter. In their next possession, Foles got knocked out and Senior QB Bryson Beirne stepped in at QB. He only threw one pass, but the pass proved to be the most important pass of his life as Juron criner caught it for a 23 yard TD. Osweiler then threw an INT to Jourdan Grandon, but the Sun devils got the ball back. osweiler drove down the field to the Cats Red Zone, but Shaquille Richardson broke up the last pass to Gerell Robinson as the time expired.

USC upsets Oregon, 38-35

USC Junior QB, Matt Barkley, passed for 323 yards and 4 TDs as the Bowl-ineligible Trojans upset the 4th ranked Oregon Ducks in Eugene's Autzen Stadium on Black-out night. USC gave Oregon more than a black eye as the Ducks were eliminated from the National Championship picture. The Ducks couldn't get a handle of anything as they fumbled multiple times. They had a chance to tie, but they missed a would be game-tying field goal at the end of regulation. The Ducks can still clinch a spot in the PAC 12 Championship game with a win in the Civil War against Oregon State.
