Las Vegas – Ka’Deem Carey rushed for 171 yards and two touchdowns, leading Arizona to a 58-13 win over UNLV.

The Wildcats wasted no time in establishing their presence, scoring on three of their first four possessions – all in the first quarter.

With his team ahead 17-6, Carey scored on his first touch of the season, powering through UNLV’s defensive line and finishing the run untouched for a 58-yard score with 14:28 left in the first half. Carey, last season’s NCAA-leading rusher with 1,929 yards, then capped an 11-play, 63-yard drive on Arizona’s next possession with a 12-yard scoring run.

Arizona (2-0) tallied 306 yards rushing in its season opener against Northern Arizona last week and followed that with 397 yards on the ground against the Rebels (0-2), who allowed Minnesota to rush for 221 yards in their season opener.

The Wildcats’ defense came up big for a second-straight week as well. Both of UNLV quarterback Nick Sherry’s interceptions were returned for touchdowns, including Tra’Mayne Bondurant’s third pick of the season.
