PAC 10 FOOTBALL AT A GLANCE

ARIZONA AT No. 10 OREGON STATE

Kickoff/TV: 7:15 p.m., Fox Sports Net.

Matchup: The Beavers (8-1, 5-1) are getting used to the whole idea of playing meaningful football games in November, and winning this one at home means next week's ``Civil War'' against Oregon could decide the Pac-10 title. ``How incredible would that be?'' said offensive guard Jared Cornell. ``You can't ask for much more.'' OSU is at the top of the Pac-10 for the first time since Sept., 1968. But, warns receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh, ``If we lose, then the big picture is over . . . our goals basically go down the drain.'' Arizona (5-4, 3-3) has a chance to qualify for a bowl, but its status was diminished by close losses to Oregon, UCLA and Washington.

CAL AT No. 6 OREGON

Kickoff: 12:30 p.m.

Matchup: In spite of themselves, the Ducks (8-1, 6-0) remain in control of the Pac-10 race and its automatic berth in the Rose Bowl. Two furious fourth-quarter comebacks in their last two games to defeat Arizona State and Washington State keeps their title hopes fresh, and they've won their lat three games by a total of eight points. Oregon has won 19 straight at Autzen Stadium, 11 straight overall in the Pac-10 and is one of just three teams (with Florida State and Nebraska) to win 14 of its last 15 games. But Cal (3-6, 2-4) beat both UCLA and USC and came close to upending Washington and Oregon State, the two second-place teams in the Pac-10.

ARIZONA STATE at STANFORD

Kickoff: 2 p.m.

Matchup: With a two-point loss to UCLA last week, the Cardinal (3-6, 2-4) become the third team to win the Pac-10 title one year and fail to make a bowl game the next. ``It's more difficult to play without postseason possibilities,'' Stanford coach Tyrone Willingham said. ``A bowl game is not in our future, but there are other things we've set our sights on that we can do before the season ends. We can still impact the scenario for Arizona State.'' The Sun Devils (5-4, 2-4), who come off a double-OT loss to USC, need one more win to become bowl eligible.
