School record on senior night
With Khalil Tate at quarterback and multiple options of running backs Arizona chooses from, the Wildcats' is plain and simple: run.
It's not difficult and some could say it's predictable, but the run game hasn't slowed down for the Cats. In a 49-28 win over Oregon State Saturday, the Wildcats set a single-game school rushing record with 534 yards, breaking last season's 511-yard outing against Arizona State in the home finale.
Against the Sun Devils last season, the Wildcats set the record without attempting a pass in the second half. This time, Arizona broke the record only completing one pass in the second half.
Arizona was led by Tate and running backs J.J. Taylor and Nick Wilson. Tate finished the game with 206 rushing yards while Taylor recorded 129 yards and Wilson ended his career at Arizona Stadium with 101 yards. It was the second game this season Wilson ran for over 100 yards.
Here's what the Wildcats had to say after running all over Oregon State:
