Arizona rolled up 306 yards on the ground against Northern Arizona in a 35-0 win last week. And that was without Ka'Deem Carey, the nation's leading rusher last season with 1,929 yards.

Saturday night against UNLV, the junior All-American makes his return after being suspended for the team's season opener, reportedly as discipline stemming from a pair of off-field incidents during the offseason.

UNLV comes into the game on the heels of a mistake-riddled loss at Minnesota, where the Gophers used a pair of special teams touchdowns and an 89-yard fourth-quarter interception return TD to blow open a close game. The Gophers, who led 16-13 at halftime, won 51-23.
