Turnovers costly for Arizona in loss at Oregon to open Pac-12 play

Is it possible to feel pretty good about a performance but still lose by more than 20 points?

Arizona lost its 16th consecutive game on Saturday night, falling 41-19 at Oregon in its Pac-12 opener. But the Wildcats also hung with the No. 3 team in the country for three quarters and had a legitimate chance to pull off a monumental upset if not for some critical errors from quarterback Jordan McCloud.

McCloud, making his first start at the UA but 18th of his career, threw for 233 yards and a touchdown and ran for 64.
