SHREVEPORT, La. — B.J. Denker threw for 275 yards and two touchdowns, Ka’Deem Carey rushed for 169 yards and two touchdowns and Arizona had an easy time today in beating Boston College 42-19 in the Advocare V100 Bowl.
Arizona (8-5) never trailed, leading 21-6 by halftime and 42-6 early in the fourth quarter. Carey had his 16th straight game with at least 100 yards rushing while Denker added a 14-yard touchdown run.
The game was billed as a matchup between two of the nation’s top running backs — Arizona’s Carey and Boston College’s Andre Williams. But the duel between AP All-America first team selections was one-sided.
Williams, who won the Doak Walker Award over Carey, was held to 75 yards rushing and a touchdown. Boston College (7-6) didn’t score a touchdown until Williams’ 4-yard run early in the fourth quarter.
Arizona’s Nate Phillips caught nine passes for 193 yards while Trey Griffey caught two touchdown passes.
