TUCSON, Ariz. -- Nick
Foles threw two touchdown passes to Juron Criner, and Arizona overcame
five turnovers to defeat UCLA 27-13 on Saturday and keep pace in the
Pac-10 race.

Nic Grigsby and Nick Booth each ran for a touchdown for the Wildcats (5-2, 3-1 Pac-10), who remain tied for second place.

Foles had a hand in all of five of Arizona's turnovers. The Pac-10's
leading passer threw three interceptions, had a fumble returned for a
touchdown and botched a handoff that led to a fumble.


UCLA's defense did everything it could to keep the Bruins (3-4, 0-4) afloat. All 13 UCLA points resulted from turnovers.

UCLA free safety Rahim Moore, the national interception co-leader,
picked off his sixth and seventh passes of the season, and strong
safety Tony Dye returned a fumble 28 yards for a score.

Bruins coach Rick Neuheisel tried three quarterbacks -- starter Kevin Prince, Kevin Craft and Richard Brehaut.
