TUCSON, Ariz. -- Nic Grigsby rushed for three touchdowns, including a career-long 62-yard scoring run, and Arizona routed The Citadel 52-6 in the Wildcats' home opener on Saturday night.
Nick Foles completed 17 of 22 for passes for 214 yards and one touchdown before calling it a night early in the third quarter as the Wildcats (2-0) rolled for 489 yards in a tuneup for next Saturday's home game against No. 9 Iowa.
Grigsby rushed for 107 yards in 11 carries and boosted his career rushing touchdown total to 25, tied for third-most in Arizona history.
The Citadel (1-1), a member of the Football Championship Subdivision (formerly NCAA Division I-AA) Southern Conference, played a Pac-10 team for the first time.
Matt Thompson, freshman quarterback in the Bulldogs' triple-option offense, fumbled the ball twice to set up Arizona touchdowns late in the first half and early in the second.
