Oregon vs. Arizona Prediction

I’m on Arizona here. This Wildcats team is just a different animal at home and have been a machine for much of the season. The Ducks have been perennial disappointments under Dana Altman and I don’t envision that changing with a trip to Tucson. I’m looking for Arizona to blow past the Ducks here as the far more talented team so I’ll lay it and play it with Arizona here.
