Arizona and Colorado each returned two interceptions for touchdowns against UNLV and Central Arkansas, respectively. Colorado’s Jered Bell grabbed a deflected pass and went 79 yards for a score early in the fourth quarter, when Central Arkansas was leading 24-17 and driving. The Buffaloes beat their FCS opponent 38-24.
In addition, Utah’s Mike Honeycutt returned a fumble for a touchdown against Weber State.
