Arizona holds off Texas San Antonio for 26-23 victory

Written By kolimtiga on Jumat, 05 September 2014 | 12.56

Nick Wilson ran for 174 yards in 30 carries and scored the go-ahead touchdown in Arizona's 26-23 victory over Texas San Antonio on Thursday night.

Cayleb Jones had an 85-yard scoring reception for Arizona on the first play from scrimmage, and redshirt freshman Anu Solomon was 17 of 32 for 231 yards after throwing for 425 yards and four touchdowns last week in the Wildcats' opening victory over Nevada Las Vegas.

Wilson's two-yard touchdown run gave Arizona a 20-16 lead with 26 seconds left in the first half. Casey Skowron made four field goals, converting from 44 and 28 yards in the third quarter to make it 26-16.

The Roadrunners, coming off a 20-point victory in their opener at Houston, pulled within three on David Glasco II's three-yard run midway through the fourth quarter.

The Wildcats had 452 yards of offense after setting a school record with 787 yards against UNLV.

It looked as if it would be another blowout shortly after the opening kickoff. On the next play, Solomon flared a conservative sideline pass at Jones close to Arizona's 30. Jones eluded a tackle and scored on the 85-yarder 18 seconds into the game.

Winston subject of investigation

An attorney said Florida State is investigating the sexual assault case involving Jameis Winston in an effort to determine whether the Seminoles quarterback violated the student code of conduct policy.

Baine Kerr, one of the attorneys for the woman who said Winston sexually assaulted her, said Thursday the university interviewed his client "early last month." He said "an investigation is ongoing."

Florida State Attorney Willie Meggs did not bring charges against Winston in the case, saying last December that there was not enough evidence to win a conviction against him.

The university would not confirm the investigation but said in a release, "While we cannot comment on any individual case, in general, complainants control the timing in our process."

Kerr disagreed with the implication that the interview occurred recently because of actions by his client, saying that the woman has been asking "Florida State to comply with federal law and expeditiously investigate and resolve her complaints."

NCAA asks for dismissal of lawsuits

The NCAA and 11 conferences that have played major college football in recent years have filed a motion to dismiss two antitrust lawsuits that accuse the association of illegally capping compensation to athletes.

The NCAA announced Thursday night that it has asked Northern California U.S. District Judge Claudia Wilken to dismiss two suits that were filed in March. Wilken ruled this summer against the NCAA in the O'Bannon case that challenged rules prohibiting college athletes from being compensated for their names, images and likenesses.

One of the suits the NCAA is seeking to dismiss was filed in New Jersey by attorney Jeffrey Kessler on behalf of four athletes, including former Clemson football player Martin Jenkins. The other was originally filed in Northern California and former West Virginia running back Shawn Alston is the lead plaintiff.

Both could eliminate the NCAA's ability to control the costs of scholarships, and the Alston suit seeks hundreds of millions in damages.

The NCAA argues that Wilken's ruling last month in the O'Bannon case, which said schools should pay players for use of their names, images and likeness, also supported the right for schools to cap compensation. Wilken's ruling set a minimum cap at $5,000 per athlete per year.


Wisconsin expects running back Melvin Gordon and defensive lineman Konrad Zagzebski to be ready Saturday for the No. 18 Badgers' home opener against Western Illinois. Both players were injured at week in Wisconsin's 28-24 loss to Louisiana State in the season opener in Houston.


Connecticut Coach Bob Diaco says starting quarterback Casey Cochran sustained an upper-body injury during the Huskies' season-opening loss to Brigham Young and won't play Saturday against Stony Brook.


Tusculum allowed minus-100 total yards and minus-124 yards rushing to set NCAA single-game records in both categories Thursday night in a 71-0 victory over the College of Faith.
