Rich Rod said the only AZ qb who didn't score tonight was Rhett. His son. But he scored a bunch last night vs. Rincon so there.

Where do you start highlighting last night’s 77-13 victory for the Arizona Wildcats football team over NAU, a team that was ranked No. 24 in the latest FCS Top 25 poll?
The quarterbacks? Anu Solomon, Jerrard Randall, Brandon Dawkins and walk-on Zach Werlinger each scored at least one rushing touchdown (Randall had two), which must be a record but it’s not in the record book. Go ahead Arizona, just put it in there.
The five touchdown runs by Arizona quarterbacks last night topped what they scored on the ground all of last season during the Wildcats’ Pac-12 South championship effort. Solomon, Randall and former backup Connor Brewer accounted for four touchdown runs in 14 games last season.
Randall was particularly impressive, especially after he broke loose last week against Nevada on his first rushing attempt for a 57-yard touchdown. On his first touch last night, he broke though three tackles en route to a 72-yard touchdown sprint. He also scored from 73 yards. The most amazing part of that run: He stiff-armed a defender out of the way after running about 55 yards. Remember, he’s a quarterback.
