Arizona QB Khalil Tate breaks off 82-yard run against Washington State

Arizona QB Khalil Tate breaks off 82-yard run against Washington State”

Leading the resurgence has been Khalil Tate, who has emerged out of nowhere as the best running quarterback in the nation with 694 yards on the ground and nine total touchdowns during the winning streak.

After WSU took a lead 27-23 early in the third quarter, Arizona regained the lead with 7:35 left in the third quarter when Taylor scored on a 3-yard touchdown run after he ran 62 yards to get to the 3. He also ran for two scores but was intercepted four times, the last one returned 66 yards by Colin Schooler for a touchdown.

Washington State isn't letting Khalil Tate run wild, but the Arizona Wildcats lead the No. 15 Cougars through one quarter anyway. He was replaced by Tyler Hilinski, who seemed to spark the Cougars and led them to a brief lead in the third quarter, but the Wildcats eventually picked off Hilinski four times as they pulled away in the third and fourth quarters.

Hilinski has accounted for three touchdowns, including two rushing.

Next Up: Washington State will play their final home game of the season on Saturday, Nov. 4 when they host Stanford. The redshirt sophomore completed 45 of 61 passes for 509 yards and three touchdowns.

Arizona: Rodriguez was supposed to be on the hot seat but Tate has pushed the Wildcats firmly into contention in the Pac-12 North and must be one of the most spectacular newcomers on the college football scene this season.

Khalil Tate has 92 rushing yards - including a career-long 82-yarder - but mainly has helped Arizona move the ball with his arm. Six plays later, Luke Falk hit Isaiah Johnson-Mack for a 1-yard touchdown. Defensive lineman Hercules Mata'afa enters the weekend as the Pac-12's active leader in career tackles-for-loss (37.5) and career sacks (18.5) and will be a key part of the Cougars' plan to keep Tate in check.

The scoreboard reads Arizona 23, Wazzu 14.

The Wildcats have won 4 straight and are fighting for the top spot in the Pac-12 South.

Arizona gained a measure of revenge from its 69-7 loss last season in Pullman, the Wildcats' most one-sided defeat since 1948.

Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.at Arizona Stadium and don't forget to follow the Wildcaster Twitter for live in-game updates.
