Run game stepping up

Well, Arizona is running the ball.

And it looks like Stoops was right.

Arizona finished with 264 yards on the ground against UCLA on Saturday and dominated the line of scrimmage to finish with nearly 15 minutes more time of possession.

Keola Antolin finished with 111 yards and a touchdown while Matt Scott got in the act, finishing with 7 total yards.

In the past two games, Arizona has 500 yards of rushing and much of that is due to the success of Antolin, as Grigsby has been inconsistent.

With the Wildcats set to face the top three offenses in the conferences (besides the UA), it will need to keep those offenses off the field as much as possible.

If Arizona can't run the ball, it will not be able to defeat anybody in these next three games. However, if the potent running attack keeps up, this could be a special season for Arizona.
