HALFTIME: Arizona leads Washington State 14-10

After an all-around slow start, Arizona leads WSU, 14-10 at the half.

Washington State put the first points on the board with a 15-yard touchdown run with about seven minutes left in the first quarter.

After an Arizona three-and-out, the Cougars kicked a 24-yard field goal and extended their lead to ten.

Late in the first quarter, Arizona finally showed signs of life.

Junior running back Ka’Deem Carey had a 30-yard rushing touchdown to wake up the Arizona Wildcats with :47 left in the first quarter.

Carey ended the first quarter with a whopping 63 rushing yards on five carries.

After the first, the Wildcats trailed, 10-7.

Junior safety Tra’Mayne Bondurant intercepted a Washington State pass early in the second quarter. The pick was in vain, however, as senior quarterback B.J. Denker fumbled on the very next play and was recovered by Washington State.

After a relatively quiet second quarter, Denker made a long pass to freshman receiver Samajie Grant to take the Wildcats down to the Cougars’ 10-yard line.

A pass from Denker to Carey resulted in a 7-yard touchdown. This was Carey’s second touchdown of the game and first receiving touchdown of the season.

The Wildcats took the lead the first time this afternoon, 14-10 with 7:37 left in the half.

Arizona closed out the half by missing a 40-yard field goal attempt.

Carey has 90 yards rushing on 13 carries so far. He has run for at 100 yards in 12 straight games.
