TUCSON, Ariz. – Ka’Deem Carey rushed for 236 yards in a school record 40 carries, capping off his night with a 44-yard touchdown run with 1:30 left to play to seal Arizona’s 35-24 victory over Utah on Saturday.

Arizona (4-2, 1-2 Pac-12) QB B.J. Denker ran for two touchdowns and passed for another.

Utah (4-3, 1-3), coming off its stunning victory over then-No. 5 Stanford, lost quarterback Travis Wilson with an injury to his right hand late in the first half.

Backup Adam Schulz threw a 55-yard touchdown pass to Sean Fitzgerald to put Utah up 21-20 early in the third quarter after Arizona led 20-7 at the half.

Carey, the nation’s leading rusher last season, amassed the second-most yardage in his career, exceeded only by his Pac-12 record 366 against Colorado last season.
