TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Matt Scott threw for 256 yards and four touchdowns, Ka'Deem Carey ran for 172 yards and Arizona raced out of its bye week with a 52-17 rout over Washington Saturday night.
Arizona (4-3, 1-3 Pac-12) went into its bye worn down and beaten up after three straight losses to ranked opponents.
Refreshed and mostly recuperated, the Wildcats had their way with Washington's defense from the opening drive, eclipsing 500 total yards (533) for the sixth time this season.
Scott finished 14 of 22, throwing two touchdowns to Austin Hill, and ran for another score. Carey scored on a 2-yard run, and Richard Morrison added a 63-yard touchdown on a punt return to give coach Rich Rodriguez his first Pac-12 win.
Washington (3-4, 1-3) had no chance against Arizona's fast-paced offense, and quarterback Keith Price had another so-so game in the Huskies' third straight loss.
