In Arizona’s 31-26 loss against UCLA last week, junior running back Ka’Deem Carey continued the pace necessary to reach Trung Canidate’s school career rushing mark.
Carey also had one rushing touchdown to draw closer to Art Luppino’s career rushing touchdown mark.
Carey gained 149 yards on 28 carries against the Bruins. He is now only 249 yards from reaching Canidate’s school record of 3,824 yards. That’s reachable against a Washington State defense today that ranks 10th in the Pac-12 with 183.9 yards a game.
Carey has 40 career rushing touchdowns in only 32 games. Luppino scored a school-record 44 rushing touchdowns from 1953-56.
Carey passed Ontiwaun Carter last week in career rushing yards to move to No. 2 on Arizona’s career charts behind Canidate. Carey has 3,575 rushing yards. Carter is now No. 3 with 3,501.
Entering the UCLA game, Carey needed to average 99.8 yards and 1.3 touchdowns to reach Canidate and Luppino, respectively, in the regular season. Now that Arizona (6-3) is bowl eligible, the averages will slightly be reduced if the Wildcats receive an invitation.
