Player of the Game: Clarence Farmer

Arizona did very little right against Wisconsin on Saturday morning but it wasn't for the lack of effort from junior running back Clarence Farmer.

Clarence Farmer carried the ball 20 times on Saturday and gained a game-high 135 yards that included an impressive 70-yard touchdown run. For his performance in Madison, WI, he wins this week's Player of the Game award.

The junior halfback from Houston came into the game averaging under 50 yards per game but he showed today why he led the Pac-10 in rushing yards a year ago. Farmer tallied only three double digit yard carries but still averaged more than six yards every time he took the handoff from Wildcat QB Jason Johnson.

On the 70-yard scoring run, Farmer ran around the left side following blockers before breaking loose at the 30, then cut between several pursuers and before getting a crushing block from WR Bobby Wade. He raced the remainder of the way for Arizona's only touchdown of the game and cut the score to 24-7 Wisconsin.

Other players worthy of Player of the Game consideration were QB Jason Johnson, who did a good job despite poor offensive line play and several dropped balls by his receivers, and Bobby Wade, who once again showed why he is one of the nation's premier WRs with seven receptions and 85 yards.
