Cobb's kickoff return ignites Arizona rout of WSU


TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Travis Cobb returned the opening kickoff 95 yards for a touchdown to set the tone for No. 21 Arizona and the Wildcats went on to rout Washington State 48-7 on Saturday.

The Wildcats scored the first seven times they had the ball.

Arizona led 34-0 at the half, then William "Bug" Wright returned a punt 86 yards for a score the first time the Wildcats touched it in the third quarter.

Arizona (6-2, 4-1 Pac-10) stayed in the thick of the Pac-10 race. The Wildcats are the only team in the conference never to play in the Rose Bowl.

Washington State (1-8, 0-6) lost its starting quarterback, freshman Jeff Tuel, when he sprained his right knee in the second quarter.
