There's quite a bit to play for. While the Arizona Wildcats don't exactly control their own destiny in the race for the Pac-12 South, they certainly know what they must do to have a shot at winning the division and earning themselves a trip to the Pac-12 Championship game.
It all starts with beating the Utah Utes on the road Saturday. Utah has arguably been one of the more complete teams in the conference this year after Oregon and UCLA. Kyle Whittingham's squad has the best sack defense in the country led by end Nate Orchard and the behemoths to present trouble for an Arizona attack led by a young quarterback and a rush game that's been on-and-off of late.
Nick Wilson will have a lot on his shoulders, but it'll be on Anu Solomon to at the least stay out of the turnover column. Utah's offense has a fine run game and a passing attack that hasn't been consistent -- a lower-scoring game should be expected when it's all said and done.

- Here's the one way Arizona can win the Pac-12 South. It involves Arizona fans rooting for UCLA against USC. The only way the South is locked in by tonight is if ASU loses to WSU and USC beats the Bruins.
- Imagine (Dragons) the Wildcats beating the Utes. Here are three keys to that happening.
- It'll be blue helmets, white pants and white jerseys for the Wildcats in Salt Lake City.
- Over at Football Study Hall, Bill Connelly recaps Arizona's victory over Washington and how the Wildcats probably should not have won.
- It wouldn't have been a win for UA last week if not for hero Casey Skowron. He kicked the game-winner and that came after he rushed for a touchdown on a fake field goal. Here's how the latter worked to perfection.
- There are some injuries to consider, including freshman cornerback Cam Denson and running back Terris Jones-Grigsby.
