Anu Solomon responds to a little adversity

Sep 13, 2014

Arizona quarterback Anu Solomon was coming off a rough game against UTSA and had just thrown an early interception against Nevada, his first big mistake of his career.  A situation that would phase most young players didn't seem to nick at Solomon's confidence a bit; it's the reason coach Rich Rodriguez still calls his signal caller "unflappable" after a close, 35-28 victory over the Wolf Pack.

Solomon, a redshirt freshman, finished by completing 22-of-26 passes that included three touchdowns. After his turnover, he only got stronger.

For his first touchdown pass, Solomon found freshman Tyrell Johnson on a smooth 35-yard pass late in the second quarter. In the third, he found receiver Cayleb Jones on a play that looked like a mirror-image of his first touchdown toss. It wasn't long after that Solomon again connected with Jones for his third touchdown pass of the evening.
