After one of the toughest four-game stretches in all of college football, ASU football got an unofficial break this weekend against the Colorado Buffaloes.
Quarterback Taylor Kelly’s 233 yards and two touchdowns helped lead the Sun Devils to a comfortable 54-13 victory. Running back Marion Grice’s two touchdowns came in the first quarter, helping ASU notch its second Pac-12 conference victory.
It took ASU just less than two minutes into the first quarter to score its first touchdown of the night on a 69-yard pass from Kelly to sophomore wide receiver Jaelen Strong.
Kelly also had a rushing touchdown in the first quarter before being benched for the entire second half because of ASU’s 47-6 lead at the break.
The dominating victory came a week after ASU suffered a nail-biting loss to Notre Dame on national television.
Now the Sun Devils will turn their focus to No. 20 Washington, who are coming off a disappointing loss to No. 2 Oregon at home.
Saturday’s game against the Huskies is featured as this year’s homecoming game for ASU.
