Bell rushed for over 4,700 yards while playing at Tolleson High School in Phoenix. He was named the Arizona State Player of the Year and brought his talents 110 miles south to Tucson to play college football. In only four games, he has made his impact felt as a Wildcat.

Against North Texas, Bell rushed for 48 yards on 12 carries and ran for a 14-yard touchdown. It was the only time either team cracked the end zone all night on offense.

Bell also caught two passes for an additional 36 yards to finish with 84 all-purpose yards.

Starting running back Clarence Farmer, who left late in the game with an injured left knee, rushed for 71 yards on 15 carries and was also considered for Player of the Game honors.

The Wildcats improved to 3-1 overall and begin Pac-10 play next Saturday night against 2001 Pac-10 champions and National Runner-up Oregon.
