Week 6 will hold very important games in deciding who will play in the Pac-12 South championship game in Las Vegas.

The Arizona Wildcats (0-4) will once again hold the nightcap on Oct. 9 on ESPN at 7:30 p.m. as they host the UCLA Bruins (3-1).

The Wildcats will have performed on ESPN three times in the first six weeks.

UCLA will be coming off a very important Pac-12 South matchup in Week 5 against Arizona State (3-1).

Arizona State will host the Stanford Cardinal (2-2) on Friday, Oct. 8 at 7:30 p.m on ESPN.

This could potentially mean more to the Devils because they will either control their own destiny in the South or run into a must-win scenario against a formidable Cardinal team who already thumped USC (2-2) 42-28 at the Coliseum.

Oregon State (3-1) travels to Washington State (1-3) on Saturday on Pac-12 Network at 1:00 p.m.

Lastly, the USC Trojans (2-2) will host the Utah Utes (2-2) at 5:00 p.m. on Fox in a battle of two teams falling far short of the season’s expectations.

The Pac-12 South may have a much clearer image after some key matchups in the league.
