TUCSON, Ariz. — Nick Foles threw for 291 yards and connected with Juron Criner for three touchdown passes in the first half, helping Arizona overwhelm UCLA 48-12 Thursday night in its first game under interim coach Tim Kish.
With nine days off since coach Mike Stoops was fired on Oct. 10, the Wildcats (2-5, 1-4 Pac-12) looked unstoppable, getting surprising lifts from their running game and defense to end a five-game losing streak.
Arizona ran for 254 of its season-high 573 yards and Taimi Tutogi ran for a pair of TDs as the Wildcats built a 35-point halftime lead.
The Bruins (3-4, 2-2) couldn't withstand the emotion of a team playing under a new coach and may have put theirs in jeopardy with a lackluster effort. On the hot seat before the season started, Rick Neuheisel may have taken big blow with a loss that puts a serious dent in UCLA's bowl chances.
