Two years later, people still talk about the flip. Sportscasters still drag out the highlight film of Ortege Jenkins launching himself into the air, head over heels, over a tackler and into the end zone. The only one who doesn't seem impressed by this touchdown feat is the man who performed it. "If you ask me," Jenkins says, "it was a lucky play." The flashy run doesn't mean much to him because this fall is all about substance over style.

Ortege Jenkins scored on a nine-yard run--somersaulting over three defenders into the end zone--with four seconds left to give No. 14 Arizona a 31-28 victory over No. 20 Washington on Saturday night. The Wildcats (5-0, 2-0 Pacific 10 Conference) won their ninth game in a row over two seasons. Arizona, which won in Seattle for the first time since 1988, drove 80 yards for its winning score to ruin Marques Tuiasosopo's big night as Washington's replacement quarterback.

Let's see, there's Carson Palmer at USC, Cory Paus at UCLA, Kyle Boller at California and Jason Gesser at Washington State. Sophomores. And Jeff Krohn at Arizona State. Freshman. A year ago, he was a walk-on. There's Joey Harrington at Oregon and Jonathan Smith at Oregon State. Juniors. Closer to what you want. There's Randy Fasani at Stanford, a senior who played mostly tight end and linebacker last season. And Ortege Jenkins, a senior who was a part-time starter at Arizona for two seasons.

Ortege Jenkins got off a slow start but was in the groove once he relaxed. Jenkins, two-for-five passing in the first quarter, got Arizona on the scoreboard with a three-yard touchdown run in the second quarter and later threw three touchdown passes as the Wildcats defeated Oregon State, 27-7, Saturday night. "It's probably the slowest start we've had this year," Jenkins said about the scoreless first quarter. "We made some adjustments. I relaxed more and stopped throwing it high.

Joe Borchard didn't have time to be nervous. With the score tied, 34-34, and less than a minute to play Saturday, the Stanford backup quarterback was on the sideline watching his team drive downfield against North Carolina. Then starting quarterback Todd Husak was knocked out of the game. "As a backup quarterback, your job is to be ready when your number is called," said Borchard, a former Camarillo High standout. "I ran to get my helmet and the next thing I know, I'm on the field with a play."

Junior quarterback Keith Smith, who lost his job to Ortege Jenkins after suffering a shoulder injury last season, made a solid bid to regain his starter status Thursday night by leading No. 24 Arizona to a season-opening 27-6 victory over Hawaii at Honolulu. Jenkins started, but was yanked after completing only two of eight passes for 14 yards. Smith came in and passed for touchdowns of 17 yards to Jeremy McDaniel and seven to Dennis Northcutt.

Whether they like it or not, sophomore Ortege Jenkins and junior Keith Smith share the No. 1 quarterback title as Arizona begins its fall football practice, and Coach Dick Tomey said it could stay that way through the season. "I'm not going to lie to you, I don't really like it," Jenkins said. But Tomey said both players have earned the right to play and there's no way to give both of them a fair chance without letting them both see action once the season begins.
