To say Arizona running back Ka’Deem Carey had a good game against Utah Saturday would be a bit of an understatement.
The junior, who led the nation in rushing last season, produced 236 yards and one touchdown on a school-record 40 carries. The touchdown, which came in the game’s final minutes, essentially put the Utes away.
For his effort, Carey was named the Maxwell Award Player of the Week. The Maxwell Award is given annually to the college football player deemed to be the best in the country by a panel consisting of sports media members and head coaches.
On the season, Carey leads the Wildcats with 805 yards and six touchdowns on 134 carries. Arizona’s next opponent is Colorado, whom the running back gashed for 366 yards and five touchdowns on 25 carries last season.
