Austin Hill looks like the old Austin Hill

Austin Hill was an All-Pac-12 caliber player until an ACL injury ended his 2013 season before it started. It didn't take long for him to get back on track Friday night.

Freshman quarterback Anu Solomon appeared out of sync with Hill in the first half -- the timing was off. But coach Rich Rodriguez not only brushesd the rust off, he went into full-out polish mode, giving his young quarterback another shot at connecting with Hill on the first play from scrimmage in the second half. As Hill broke in on his route, Solomon hit the veteran wideout in stride, helping Hill shed a tackler and outrun the rest of the Rebels' defense en route to a 92-yard touchdown that gave the Wildcats a 31-6 lead.

Easy enough.
