Arizona had 323 yards at halftime in their 56-0 trouncing of the South Carolina State Bulldogs on Saturday in Tucson.

Rich Rod's men looked more than comfortable from the first whistle to the last in their last "tune up" before they take on Pac-12 and national powerhouse Oregon Ducks and their first real test of the season.

Matt Scott continued to take great strides as a starting quarterback, and looked even more comfortable in Rich Rod's no huddle spread offense. Scott completed 30 of his 36 pass attempts for a staggering 288 yards. He also scampered 9 times for a nice 61 yards, proving why he is one of the Pac-12's best duel threat quarterbacks. 

A plethora of running backs had their hand in the victory, as the Arizona bench went deep early in the game as the result was in plain sight as the game was still young. Headlining the rushing attack were Daniel Jenkins who ran for 76 yards on just 12 carries, and the feature back for the Wildcats,Ka'Deem Carey who had 71 yards on 13 touches. 

This game was a blowout, but rest assured the Wildcats will not be looking ahead with any cockiness to them for their next contest. The Wildcats play undefeated Oregon in Eugene on Saturday night on ESPN.

In front of thousands of Duck faithful and millions watching nationwide, this is the chance for Rich Rod and his men to really make a name for themselves. It will be no easy feat, as the Oregon offense is explosive, powerful and above all...fast!

Arizona will be looking to avenge its disappointing 56-31 home loss to the Ducks from just a year ago. Above all, the Wildcats need to come to play. Both teams run a high tempo offense and have strong defenses to back them up. This game is sure to be a good one, and have highlights galore. Blink and you might miss it.
