BOULDER, Colo. (AP) — Ka'Deem Carey rushed for four touchdowns and Arizona extended Colorado's Pac-12 losing streak to a dozen games with a 44-20 win over the Buffaloes on Saturday night.
Carey, the nation's leading rusher, ran for 119 yards on 23 carries. But it was his quarterback, B.J. Denker, who surprised the Buffs on the ground with a career-best 192 yards on 15 keepers.
He got 100 of those yards on two scampers up the middle, a career-long 54-yard gem and a 46-yarder that got the Wildcats (5-2, 2-2) out from the shadow of their own goal line.
Carey, who came in averaging 160 yards a game, scored from 1, 7, 1 and 6 yards out — one TD in each quarter. He's now reached the end zone in nine straight quarters against the Buffaloes (3-4, 0-4). Last year, he rolled up a conference record 366 yards and five TDs on the Buffaloes.
