TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Arizona got off to a great start under new coach Rich Rodriguez, overcoming a few flaws to climb up the rankings.
They couldn't Saturday night in Eugene.
Plagued by mistakes near the goal line and unable to keep up with Oregon's speed or depth, Arizona was blown out 49-0 by the Ducks in its Pac-12 opener.
The loss dropped the Wildcats out of The Associated Press poll from No. 22 and left them with plenty to work on with a difficult schedule ahead.
Up next for Arizona is surprising Oregon State, which entered the poll at No. 18 after beating Wisconsin and UCLA, two ranked teams.
The Wildcats need to clean up their mistakes or it could be another long night against a team from Oregon.
