TUCSON, Ariz. -- There will be a lot of fast dudes on the field at Autzen Stadium on Saturday night.

That's when No. 22 Arizona, with the nonstop no-huddle offense coach Rich Rodriguez helped innovate, takes on No. 3 Oregon and Chip Kelly, the coach who put a rocket booster on RichRod's original idea.

The Wildcats and Ducks are two of college football's most prolific teams, averaging a combined 100 points and 1,200 yards heading into the game.

They're among the fastest teams in the country, too, with Arizona averaging 93 plays per game and Oregon not far behind at 86.

Scoreboard operators, get your fingers ready. Officials, loosen up your legs. Fans, don't look away for too long. This could be the fastest game in the West -- or anywhere.
