The Arizona Wildcats upset the tenth-ranked University of Southern California Trojans on Saturday, coming away with a 39-36 victory. The Wildcats trailed by 15 in the third quarter, but a charge led by quarterback Matt Scott would give Arizona an 11-point buffer midway through the fourth.

Scott finished the game 27 for 50 passing, throwing for 369 yards and three touchdowns before being taken out of the game late with a concussion.

The Trojans would close the Wildcat lead to three after a late offensive drive, but the Wildcat defense did just enough to force a Hail Mary on the Trojans’ last play, the result of which was an incomplete pass, giving the Wildcats arguably their biggest win of the season.

Despite the loss, Trojan wide receiver Marqis Lee had a huge game, breaking the Pac-12 record for receiving yards by halftime. He would finish the game with 16 catches for 345 yards and two touchdowns. Including a couple long kick returns, Lee ended with 469 all-purpose yards.

Former Canyon Del Oro High School star Ka'Deem Carey led the Wildcats on the ground, rushing for 119 yards on 28 carries.

The Wildcats (5-3, 2-3 Pac-12) will next face UCLA on Nov. 3.
