TUCSON - Records were broken. A freshman was broken in. Arizona redshirt freshman Anu Solomon shined in his debut, throwing for a freshman-record 425 yards and four touchdowns in a 58-13 win over UNLV Friday night.
The Wildcats offense shattered the former school-record for yards in a game, compiling 787 yards of offense. The old record was 691 set in 1969.
Solomon's four touchdowns went to four different receivers. He also completed passes to 10 different receivers during the game. Running backs Terris Jones-Grigsby and Nick Wilson each topped the 100-yard mark on the ground. Jones-Grigsby scored on a two yard plunge, while Wilson broke free for an 85-yard scamper.
It's a short week for RichRod and the Cats who take their 1-0 record into San Antonio on Thursday when they face UTSA. The Roadrunners picked up a 27-7 win over Houston on Friday.
Thursday's kickoff is set for 5pm on Fox Sports 1.
