Nevada: The Wolf Pack struggled down the stretch after a 6-1 start, dropping four of their last five games. Stefphon Jefferson paced the nation's seventh-ranked rush attack with 1,703 yards and 22 rushing touchdowns, while quarterback Cody Fajardo added 981 rushing yards and 11 rushing scores. Nevada looks to end the season the same way it started it: beating a Pac-12 opponent.

Arizona: The Wildcats averaged 37.3 points per game this season with the nation's leading rusher Ka'Deem Carey. Defensively, the Wildcats have been porous, giving up 34.3 points per game. Arizona's pass defense is ranked 120 out of 124. Arizona has signature wins over USC and Oklahoma State this season, and a win in Albuquerque would be a third.
