UNDATED (AP) _ In each of Mike Stoops' first three seasons at Arizona the Wildcats have upset a Top 25 team in Tucson. Oklahoma fans will be rooting for another this weekend when the former OU defensive coordinator and brother of Sooner coach Bob Stoops sends the Wildcats against 2nd-ranked Oregon.

The Ducks are also second in the BCS, two spots ahead of fourth-ranked Oklahoma in the BCS ratings.

In 2004 Arizona upset 18th-ranked Arizona State, in 2005 it was 7th-ranked UCLA and last year it was Number 8 California.

Arizona has won two straight to improve to 4-6 overall and keep alive hopes of a bowl bid and Mike Stoops says his team has nothing to lose and will do whatever they have to do to win.

Arizona also has the confidence of knowing it can beat Oregon having knocked off the Ducks last year on the road.
