Terris Jones-Grigsby scored the tiebreaking touchdown with 2:54 left, plowing into the end zone from a yard out, and
True freshman Nick Wilson ran for a pair of touchdowns and caught another for the Wildcats (5-0), who have won their first five games for the first time since 1998. It was the second consecutive season that an unranked Arizona team upset the Ducks (4-1).
With his team trailing 24-14 going into the final quarter, Oregon's Matt Wogan made a 21-yard field goal.
With Arizona driving downfield, the Ducks sacked quarterback Anu Solomon on third-and-8, but Tony Washington was called for unsportsmanlike conduct to give the Wildcats a first down.
A pass interference call got Arizona closer for Jones-Grigsby's go-ahead touchdown.
Michigan's Hoke seems safe for now
Michigan Athletic Director Dave Brandon said Thursday he prefers to wait until the end of the season before evaluating his coaches, suggesting Brady Hoke is safe for now at the helm of the school's storied football program.
Brandon and Hoke have both received criticism for the handling of injured quarterback Shane Morris in last weekend's loss to Minnesota — and that's not the only issue facing the athletic director following a rough September. Michigan is 2-3 and showing little progress in Hoke's fourth season as coach. Attendance at Michigan Stadium has dipped and there was even a student protest this week calling for Brandon to be fired.
Hoke has been criticized for not immediately sitting Morris for the rest of the game after the sophomore took a hard hit in the fourth quarter of Saturday's 30-14 loss to Minnesota. On Thursday, Brandon reiterated that communication was a problem — both during the game when Morris was hit, and over the next couple days.
"When Brady went out at whatever time it was on Monday, we were still gathering facts and trying to create a clear depiction of the sequence of events that took place on that bench on Saturday," Brandon said.
