12/15/16 - Arizona QB Solomon announces plans to transfer...Arizona junior Anu Solomon, who was the Wildcats starting quarterback at the beginning of the past three seasons, announced Tuesday that he plans to transfer. The school to which he will transfer is not yet known, but he is expected to graduate before next season. That means he could play next season at an FBS school. Solomon was Arizona's starting quarterback in 2014 and 2015, and he threw for 3,793 yards with 28 touchdown passes and nine interceptions as a redshirt freshman, helping Arizona win the Pac-12 South title and earn a berth in the Fiesta Bowl. In 2015 he missed two games and parts of two others because of injuries. Solomon won the job as the starter to begin this past season as well. He started the season-opener against BYU, but suffered a knee injury during practice the next week. He did not play in a game again until the Oct. 29 against Stanford. He made his first start since the opener in the Nov. 19 game against Oregon State, but a foot injury suffered in the first half of that game ended his season. - The Sports Xchange
12/19/15 - Anu Solomon threw two touchdowns passes and ran for another score to help Arizona hold off pesky New Mexico 45-37 on Saturday in a wild New Mexico Bowl. Arizona (7-6) and its quick offense overwhelmed the Lobos (7-6) in a game that saw New Mexico surge late after being down as many of 18 points. Jared Baker ran for 107 yards and three touchdowns, and Cayleb Jones had 182 yards receiving and a touchdown. Linebacker Scooby Wright III, who battled injures all season, came back for the bowl game and made two sacks. For coach Rich Rodriguez's Wildcats, the New Mexico Bowl win came just a year after Arizona made it to the Pac-12 championship game and eyed a playoff spot. New Mexico quarterback Lamar Jordan rushed for three touchdowns and threw a 92-yard touchdown pass to Delane Hart-Johnson before leaving the game in the third quarter with an injury. The Lobos then turned to a committee of running backs to get New Mexico back in the game. Still, Arizona was able to hold star running back Jhurell Pressley to 75 yards rushing and no touchdowns. - AP Sports
09/20/15 - For a little more than a quarter of the game, No. 20 Arizona was having all sorts of trouble with Northern Arizona. Then the Wildcats overwhelmed the Lumberjacks with an avalanche of school records. Anu Solomon completed 25 of 35 passes for 285 yards and four touchdowns in a little more than a half of play, and Arizona set team marks for points and total yards in a 77-13 rout of the outmatched FCS school. The Wildcats (3-0) broke their record for points set in a 74-0 win 94 years ago over the school now known as UTEP. Arizona's 792 yards eclipsed the mark of 787 set against UNLV last season.
Their 499 yards rushing broke the school record of 492 set against Eastern Michigan in 1988. Arizona tied the team mark of 11 touchdowns in a game, also set in that 1921 win over UTEP. The Wildcats' 35 second-quarter points were one shy of the most in school history. Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez said those numbers don't mean much now, not with the Pac-12 opener against No. 10 UCLA looming next Saturday. "It will be nice to talk about for a day," he said. "After tomorrow's film, other than corrections, we'll be moving on for sure." - AP Sports
09/13/15 - Fabulous as freshmen, Arizona quarterback Anu Solomon and running back Nick Wilson are picking up where they left off last season. Wilson ran for 194 yards and three touchdowns and Solomon passed for 264 yards and two more scores Saturday to lead the No. 22 Wildcats past Nevada 44-20 and improve to 2-0. Just two games into their sophomore season, the duo now has combined for 54 touchdowns and more than 6,300 yards total offense in their young college careers. "Me and Anu have a really special relationship," said Wilson, who explained they are "like best friends - buddies on and off the field" who just seem to "click."
"Believe it or not, a lot of people don't know this, but we talk like mid-play," said the 5-foot-10, 200-pound back from Fresno, California. "We are always communicating so I know what he is doing and he knows what I am doing." As freshman last year, Solomon passed for 3,793 yards and 28 touchdowns, and Wilson ran for 1,375 yards and had 17 total TDs. Last week, Solomon passed for 229 yards and three touchdowns and Wilson ran for 97 yards in a 42-32 victory over Texas-San Antonio. - AP Sports
11/15/14 - Arizona 27, Washington 26...Casey Skowron scored on a fake field goal and kicked a last-play 47-yard field goal to lift No. 14 Arizona to a 27-26 victory over Washington on Saturday afternoon. Skowron, who missed a late 36-yard attempt in the final minute of a 28-26 home loss to USC earlier this season, got his shot at redemption after the Wildcats recovered a fumble at the Huskies 45 with 1:23 left. Arizona nearly had a 34-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Anu Solomon to receiver Cayleb Jones in the back of the end zone, but replay officials overturned the call, ruling Jones had a toe on the end line. After two runs, the Wildcats opted to kick a field goal on fourth down. Arizona (8-2, 5-2 Pac-12) stayed alive in the Pac-12 South. Washington (6-5, 2-5) still needs a win to be bowl eligible in its 13-game season. The Huskies are 0-5 against ranked teams this season. - The Sports Xchange
