Nine games down, nine games to go for everyone in the Pac-12.
There are seven teams within two games of first place but the Arizona Wildcats know they no longer have to watch the out-of-town scoreboard.

The Arizona Wildcats don’t play but their fans will have a keen interest in the performance of four ball-carriers around the country.
