A two-week layoff had no effect on the UA football team, as it rolled to a 38-21 victory against UNLV at Arizona Stadium Saturday night.
In just his third start as a collegian, junior quarterback Jason Johnson led the charge for Arizona (3-0), completing 18 of 30 passes for 247 yards and three touchdowns.

Fans display their patriotism during the football game Saturday night at Arizona Stadium. Many fans at the game were waving flags, and many had American flags painted on their body. The entire stadium observed a moment of silence before the singing of the Star-Spangled Banner.
Student security not a factor in decision, officials say
Residence Life has hired two new resident assistants to oversee more than 40 students living in a hotel near the UA, in anticipation that some students may have to live there for the entire fall semester.
When the final whistle blew ending Saturday night's game at Arizona Stadium, it was apparent the high-powered offense UA head football coach John Mackovic promised when he was hired in December had arrived.
