On a night of upsets, why shouldn't Arizona get to join the party? The No.18 Oklahoma State Cowboys had no answer for the offense of the University of Arizona. In the second half, it seemed as if the Cowboys would gain some ground on U of A, the Wildcats would comeback and score almost always in the series after. Arizona would go on win a high-scoring upset, 59-38
Arizona quarterback Matt Scott would play the entire game, much to the dismay of OK State. Scott would beat the Cowboys on the ground and in the air. He threw 26 times for 314 yards and two TDs. In a Tebow-at-Florida-esque performance, ran for 62 yards on 20 carries and added another touchdown. Receivers Tracy Moore and Blake Jackson would combine for 223 yards in the air. Running back Ka'Deem Carey rushed for 139 yards and three touchdowns.
Oklahoma State's quarterback Wes Lunt didn't necessarily have a terrible game. The QB was 36 for 58 for 441 yards and four touchdowns. It's those three interceptions that didn't help his cause.
U of A is hoping their momentum carries into next week as they welcome South Carolina State to Arizona.
Box Score Hero: Receiver Tracy Moore had nine receptions for 117 yards and four touchdowns.
Rankings Ramifications: Losing to an unranked opponent is never a good thing in the eyes of the BCS. That No. 18 ranking is long gone come Monday.
But Did They Cover? The line was set at Arizona +10.5. They ended up not needing the extra help.
