Daniel Jenkins ran 91 yards for a touchdown, the third-longest rushing play in Arizona school history, and the Wildcats opened their season with a rainy 35-0 victory over Northern Arizona on Friday night.
B.J. Denker threw an 11-yard touchdown pass to Jenkins and ran 30 yards for another score. Moments after Denker left the game in the fourth quarter, backup Javelle Allen ran 61 yards for a TD.
Tra'Mayne Bondurant had two interceptions, returning one 21 yards for a touchdown.
Arizona All-America running back Ka'Deem Carey, the nation's leading rusher last season, was suspended for the game "per team policy," the school said. The punishment apparently stemmed from trouble the running back had during the offseason, including an arrest for an incident involving his girlfriend. The charges were later dropped.
