Arizona has been on a roll lately thanks to the emergence of sophomore quarterback Khalil Tate who has put up astronomical numbers the past four weeks.

The Wildcats have transformed from an uninspiring 2-2 squad to a 6-2 team that's bowl eligible and capable of winning the Pac-12 South division.

Arizona (6-2, 4-1 Pac-12) is set to face the USC Trojans (7-2, 5-1 Pac-12) in Los Angeles on Saturday with first place in the Pac-12 South on the line.

The Trojans are slated as the No. 17 team in both major polls.

Kickoff is set for 7:45 p.m. PT and it will be televised on ESPN.
