TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Ka'Deem Carey scored four touchdowns, Matt Scott threw for 320 yards and two scores, and Arizona knocked off No. 18 Oklahoma State 59-38 on Saturday night.
Arizona (2-0) fell into a quick 14-0 hole before scoring the next 30 points as Oklahoma State (1-1) unraveled under a shower of yellow flags. The Cowboys had 15 penalties for a school-record 167 yards before settling down enough to rally within two points late in the third quarter.
The Wildcats wouldn't let them any closer behind Carey, who ran for 126 yards and scored on two touchdown runs in the fourth quarter to seal an impressive second win under new coach Rich Rodriguez.
Oklahoma State's Wes Lunt threw for 436 yards and four touchdowns to Tracy Moore, but also had three interceptions, including one returned 48 yards for a touchdown by Jonathan McKnight in the fourth quarter.
