 Tucson,  AZ  (Sports Network)  - Matt  Scott tossed  three touchdown passes on
 Saturday and No. 24 Arizona pasted South Carolina State, 56-0.
 
 Scott  completed 30-of-36  passes for  288 yards  without an  interception and
 added a rushing touchdown, as the Wildcats (3-0) wrapped up a perfect, season-
 opening homestand. They were coming off an upset of nationally-ranked Oklahoma
 State.
 
 Daniel  Jenkins, Ka'Deem  Carey and  Jared Baker  each rushed  for a  score in
 Saturday's  rout, while  Dan Buckner  caught  six passes  for 85  yards and  a
 touchdown.
 
 Richard  Cue  completed 12-of-25 passes  for 89  yards and an interception for
 the  Bulldogs (1-2). The Football Championship Subdivision competitors managed
 just 154 total yards.
 
 "The  game got  away from  us to  the  point where  it got  ugly," said  South
 Carolina  State  coach Buddy  Pough.  "I  wish  we  would have  played  better
 offensively, because if we had, we would have given ourselves a chance to keep
 the game close defensively."
 
 Richard  Morrison  recorded four  catches  for  the  Wildcats and  the  junior
 receiver opened the scoring with a 15-yard touchdown grab.
 
 In  the  second quarter, Taimi Tutogi  reeled in a 14-yard scoring strike from
 Scott before Carey's seven-yard touchdown run made it 21-0.
 
 Scott added to the lead when he notched a 10-yard touchdown run shortly before
 halftime.
 
 The Wildcats continued to dominate after the break as Scott opened the second-
 half scoring with a 27-yard touchdown pass to Buckner.
 
 Late  in  the third quarter,  Jenkins reeled off  a five-yard scoring burst to
 make it 42-0.
 
 B.J.  Denker  backed up Scott  and completed 6-of-10  passes for 78 yards. The
 junior  signal  caller found Sean Willet  for a 17-yard touchdown early in the
 fourth quarter before Baker capped the blowout with a four-yard scoring run.
 
 "As long as it counts as one victory, we're going to play," said Arizona coach
 Rich  Rodriguez. "They're an FCS opponent but you can't take them lightly. You
 can't overlook them, they play hard. The guys were business-like all week."
