TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Arizona will have a hard time replacing Ka'Deem Carey with one running back.

A two-time All-American, Carey left the desert with nearly every rushing record in the book.

The Wildcats have auditioned six players for the role in fall camp and each brings something a little different to the table.

Fifth-year senior Terris Jones-Grigsby, a walk-on in 2010, has gotten the most first-team reps so far. Junior Jared...

Using a shorter, more compact stride, the American sprinter is off to an 11-0 start in 100-meter races this season, although none have been against a certain person named Usain Bolt.
