Arizona Football Rankings: Week 2

Big numbers highlighted the second official week of football in Arizona this past weekend. The top teams all posted impressive offensive totals, none bigger than Saguaro. Senior running back D.J. Foster rushed for 271 yards and scored six times in his team's 70-21 rout over Thunderbird. For the season, Foster already has more than 500 yards rushing and 10 touchdowns. Only one team fell by the wayside this week — Marcos de Niza played tough but couldn't overcome miscues in a loss to Chaparral.
