Arizona Wildcats quarterback sets NCAA record for rushing yards in a game

And he wasn't even expected to play.

Arizona Wildcats sophomore quarterback Khalil Tate ran for 327 yards in UA's 45-42 win at Colorado on Saturday night. That number is a new NCAA record among FBS-level schools.

Tate came into Saturday's game as UA's backup quarterback, but an early injury to starter Brandon Dawkins set the state for Tate, who accomplished the feat on just 14 carries.

Tate rushed for four touchdowns, and he also threw the ball well, completing 11 of 12 passes for 142 yards and a TD. The win moved Arizona to 3-2 on the season and 1-1 in the Pac-12.
