Over on the Arizona side, they’re 15-8 this year. Since losing to Arizona State, the Wildcats have gotten victories in consecutive games over Washington and Washington State.

USC has had a few tough matchups lately, and all things considered they’ve performed pretty well. The four-point win over Utah was a solid game, and the Trojans were able to hang around in a nine-point defeat at Oregon.
As for Arizona, they’ve bounced back pretty well following their 66-65 loss to AZ State, though the Washington game was pretty close (three points). Still, I’m going to go with the Wildcats on the cover here.
