LeBron James pays respect to Arizona QB Khalil Tate's 327-yard performance

Share

"Could someone please tackle No. 14 for Arizona?".

Tate's rushing touchdowns covered 48, 28, 47 and 75 yards. Through the air, he also completed 11 of his 12 passes for 142 yards and another touchdown.

Tate was hardly touched all night — if at all.

Asked if Tate's performance and the win at Colorado might energize the UA fan base, Rodriguez said: "I hope so".

He's been previously hampered by a sprained shoulder. "He was the first one talking to the team after the game in the locker room about what we needed to do and how we needed to do it".

Former Northern Illinois star Jordan Lynch was the previous record holder when he rushed for 321 yards in a win over Western Michigan in 2013.

What's more, it was the second-most ever in Arizona history.

The sophomore quarterback has accounted for four touchdowns and rushed for more than 200 yards as the Cats built a 35-21 lead over the Buffaloes through three quarters of their game at Folsom Field. Tate averaged 23.4 yards on 14 carries.

"I didn't even know his number to be quite honest", Moeller said.

The Buffaloes certainly do now.

Now what? Is it accurate to say quarterback-rich USC and UCLA blew it by not asking Tate to play quarterback? "He's a phenomenal player".

Colorado's Phillip Lindsay carried a school-record 41 times for 281 yards and three scores.

Colorado-Arizona is on the Pac-12 Network.

Senior defensive back Ryan Moeller wasn't necessarily expecting a performance from Tate during the week.

"Offense did a great job blocking", he said.

Dawkins was momentarily dinged after taking a late hit out of bounds that was announced on linebacker Drew Lewis.

Altenberg described Tate's game against Mater Dei this way: "It's hard to defend him".

"I've never been in a situation like that, except for a couple times against [former Nevada quarterback Colin] Kaepernick", MacIntyre said.

Tate's 58-yard run gave Arizona a 7-0 lead. He now has 4,989 yards to surpass Rodney Stewart's mark of 4,828 set from 2008-11.

"I'm really happy for Phillip for how he battled and fought", head coach Mike MacIntyre said.

Arizona: Tate or Dawkins? Tate, it seemed, wouldn't be much of a concern. "Khalil played pretty well today".

Arizona's victory on Saturday improved its record to 3-2 overall and 1-1 in the Pac-12 Conference.

UCLA has played running quarterbacks before, most recently Colorado's Steven Montez, who is more pass than run but still poses the threat of scrambling. The miss snapped a streak of nine straight field goals for the 30-year-old freshman from Australia.

Colorado tied the game at 14, courtesy of a 19-play, 85-yard drive that took 9:34 of the second quarter and culminated with a 1-yard Lindsay rushing touchdown. It was fittingly capped off by Lindsay's 1-yard TD plunge. Andthat has ratcheted up the pressure on the Buffaloes entering Saturday night'shome game against Arizona.
