SHREVEPORT, La. (AP & - B.J. Denker threw for 275 yards and two touchdowns, Ka'Deem Carey rushed for 169 yards and two touchdowns and Arizona defeated Boston College 42-19 in the Advocare V100 Bowl.

Arizona (8-5) never trailed, leading 21-6 by halftime and 42-6 early in the fourth quarter. Carey had his 16th straight game with at least 100 yards rushing while Denker added a 14-yard touchdown run.

The game was billed as a matchup between two of the nation's top running backs - Arizona's Carey and Boston College's Andre Williams. But the duel between AP All-America first team selections was one-sided.

Williams, who won the Doak Walker Award over Carey, was held to 75 yards rushing and a touchdown. Boston College (7-6) didn't score a touchdown until Williams' 4-yard run early in the fourth quarter.

Chase Rettig threw for 189 yards on 26 attempts.

Arizona's Nate Phillips caught nine passes for 193 yards while Trey Griffey caught two touchdown passes.
