Arizona’s Anu Solomon named National Freshman of the Week
It’s fair to say Anu Solomon’s debut as the Arizona Wildcats’ starting quarterback could not have gone much better.
The redshirt freshman completed 25-of-44 passes for 425 yards and four touchdowns. He also rushed for 50 yards while leading the Wildcats to a 58-13 victory over UNLV.
For his efforts, Solomon was named the Athlon Sports National Freshman of the Week.
Solomon, who was the first freshman to ever start Week 1 for the Wildcats, had touchdown passes of 39, 63, 13 and 92 yards, and his 17.0 yards per completion set a new single-game school record for a QB with 20 or more completions.
