The Arizona Wildcats and Oregon State Beavers will meet in a Pac-12 matchup on Saturday, November 11, 2017. Find game time, TV channel and how to watch online information below.
The Wildcats (6-3, 4-2) lost a very competitive game to USC at the Coliseum last Saturday and sit 1.5 games behind the Trojans in the Pac-12 South standings. This game will be Arizona’s last home game of the season before they head out of town to face Oregon and Arizona State.
The Beavers (1-8, 0-6) sit in last place in the Pac-12 North division. The Beavers have played hard for interim head coach Cory Hall and have certainly improved over the last three weeks. Oregon State will play Arizona and Arizona State before ending its season in the Civil War game against Oregon.

Arizona-Oregon State football keys to the game:
Let Khalil Tate Run
Khalil Tate, Arizona’s sophomore quarterback phenom, recently became the first QB in Pac-12 history to rush for more than 1,000 yards in a season. Tate also won four consecutive Pac-12 offensive player of the week awards. During that span he rushed for 840 yards and 8 TDs and threw for 743 yards and 6 scores, highlighted by a FBS QB-record 327 rushing yards against Colorado.
Tate is an unstoppable force at this point and one that coach Rich Rodriguez needs to keep going to as much as possible. Against USC, the sophomore struggled for most of the game before turning on the jets late and bringing Arizona back. While the Wildcats lost, it proved a point. The Wildcats are never out of a game with Tate at the helm, and Arizona’s vicious running game eventually will pay dividends in each and every contest.
Stop Ryan Nall
If Oregon State is going t0 pull off the upset, it will be on the back of Ryan Nall. Nall is a running back who ranks No. 9 in the Pac-12 in rushing yards per game. On the season Nall has rushed for 632 yards and 7 TDs.
Arizona’s defense needs to target Nall all night long and make sure he doesn’t get going. If he does get going, watch out. This game could be a little more competitive. Oregon State is not going to roll over. This is a tough team with a tough coach in Hall.
Come Out Healthy
While Oregon State could provide a bit of a test to Arizona if the Wildcats don’t take the Beavers seriously, it is likely that Tate and company easily will handle this game. It is crucial that the Wildcats come out of this game healthy because their next two games figure to be tough.
The Ducks will be waiting for Arizona next week in Eugene, which is a difficult place to play. Oregon likely will have star quarterback Justin Herbert under center after missing the past six weeks with a broken collarbone. The Ducks are a different team with Herbert and that figures to be a great game. Then the Wildcats will take on Arizona State. Nothing more need be said about that game. It’s a must-win.
