Arizona builds big lead, cruises past Cougars

Pullman, WA ( – Anu Solomon threw five touchdown passes
against a deplorable Washington State defense, leading 15th-ranked Arizona
to a 59-37 rout on Saturday.

Solomon did most of his damage in the first half, as the Wildcats (6-1, 3-1
Pac-12) jumped out to a 31-0 lead early in the second quarter. Washington
State’s potent offense woke up after that, but the damage was done.

Solomon threw for 294 yards on 26-of-38 passing efficiency, Terris Jones-
Grigsby ran 13 times for 107 yards and five different players hauled in
touchdown receptions in the dominant victory.

Connor Halliday, who set the NCAA single-game passing record earlier this

came with the game already out of reach. Halliday completed 56-of-79 for 489
yards with four touchdowns and two interceptions.

Vince Mayle led all receivers with 14 catches for 145 yards and a touchdown,
and Isiah Myers scored twice among his six grabs for 95 yards.

Washington State (2-6, 1-4) has dropped four straight home games to the
