TUCSON, Ariz. — Ka'Deem Carey scored four touchdowns, Matt Scott threw for 320 yards and two scores, and Arizona knocked off No. 18 Oklahoma State.
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.
Carey ran for 147 yards in his debut as the featured back last week and followed it up by scoring on two 1-yard runs, another from 25 yards and on a 13-yard screen pass. Scott finished 28 of 41 and ran for 55 yards with another score.
Oklahoma State had nine penalties for 110 yards in the first half. The Cowboys, coming off a ridiculously easy 84-0 rout of Savannah State, settled down in the second half and closed to 30-28. But the Wildcats got two TDs for a 45-31 lead and Carey sealed it late.
