Colorado University Vs. No. 21 Arizona State: Sun Devils Skewer Buffaloes 48-14

Going into Tempe with a slew of injuries, the Colorado University Buffaloes (1-8) had not much more than the most outside of chances to pull an upset against the No. 21-ranked Arizona State Sun Devils (6-2), and they indeed looked over-matched today as the Buffs fell 48-14 in a Sun Devils laser=light show.

Scoring 31 points in the first half alone, the Sun Devil offense hardly noticed the Buffaloes defenders. Finishing the day with 300 yards passing and two touchdowns, Arizona St. quarterback Brock Osweiler only looked human when the Buffaloes defenders nabbed his fumble for a touchdown return.

Running free and easy, Sun Devil tailback Cameron Marshall averaged over 7.5 yards per carry, slashing the Colorado defense for 117 yards and three touchdowns of his own.

The Buffaloes offense, however, could not keep the ball secured, losing three fumbles and tossing two interceptions. Quarterback Tyler Hansen, who passed for 286 yards and a late game touchdown, could never quite escape the Arizona St. defenders, whereas running back Josh Ford seemed to manage rather well against them, rushing for 72 yards on just 10 carries.

The Buffaloes will be home again next Friday night, taking on the USC Trojans.
