Snapshot: Wildcats continue to tumble

Yell all you want, Mike Stoops. It isn't going to help.
The Wildcats have been outperformed and beaten in nearly every aspect all season. Stoops needs to figure out what's going on with his team, as that chopping block looms ever larger. Arizona needs to develop a run game in a hurry. The Wildcats' four backs combined for 17 carries, the exact same amount carried by Oregon State's Jovan Stevenson, who also had more yards than all of the Wildcats rushers combined. The passing game continues to be the strongest portion of the Wildcats team. Quarterback Nick Foles went 31-for-45 and 378 yards. He also completed a touchdown pass, but gave up two picks. With a quarterback like Foles, the Cats need to keep the ball in his hands. Defense continues to be a problem for the Wildcats. Oregon State quarterback Sean Mannion threw for 267 yards, two touchdowns and two picks. The interceptions were more of a consolation for Arizona, as they gave up 408 yards.
