Ka'Deem Carey's sophomore season for Arizona got better Thursday night - even though it's already over. Oregon's Kenjon Barner failed to catch Carey in rushing yards in the Fiesta Bowl, giving the UA running back the NCAA rushing title.

Carey's final totals of 1,929 yards and 148.38 yards per game are tops in the nation and won't be eclipsed. Barner needed 306 yards and finished with 143 on 31 carries.

Carey is the first UA player in 57 years to lead the nation in rushing. Art Luppino rushed for 1,313 yards in 1955 en route to his second consecutive title.
