Final -- Arizona 34, Oregon 24.

TUCSON, Ariz. -- The bid for the national championships is over for the Ducks. With the loss, they can stil hope for the Rose Bowl, or a BCS at-large bid, but no more championship dreams.

While they're disappointed with the loss of a possible BCS title game, the Ducks are still optimistic about their pontential bowl game. The Rose Bowl isn't half-bad, afterall.

"I'm more concerned about our team because we have two very important games left," Bellotti said. "We have to refocus for UCLA and Oregon State because we are still in contention for a Pac-10 title."

Dennis Dixon said the injury he suffered felt similar to the one he suffered against Arizona State. He believes he needs some extended rehab and he'll be okay.

"My foot got planted in the ground and my knee went the other way," Dixon said. "But I should be fine. I hope so."

Arizona gets its fifth win and will need to beat Arizona State if it wants to be eligilble for a bowl game.

Player of the Game: Antoine Cason. Arizona's senior conerback had two touchdowns (one punt return, one interception) and just shut down Oregon's passing attack once Leaf entered the game.

"Cason made some huge plays tonight," Arizona coach Mike Stoops said. "He really showed why he should be an All-American."

Play of the Game: Dixon's injury. After it happened, all the energy and trickery was sucked out of the Oregon offense. While they still had the potential to win the game, the offense completely sputtered without the senior quarterback. Leaf never had a chance against the Wildcats' pass rush.
