BOULDER, Colo. - Trenton Bourguet threw for 435 yards and three touchdowns, all of which went to tight end Jalin Conyers, and Xazavian Valladay ran for three touchdowns as Arizona State racked up 557 total yards and held off a late push for a 42-34 victory against Colorado.

The Sun Devils (3-5, 2-3 Pac-12) scored a touchdown on each of their first two drives, going a combined 139 yards in 15 plays. Bourguet completed his first nine passes for 161 yards.

On its way to a 28-17 halftime lead, an Arizona State offense that entered the night averaging 353.6 yards had put up 327 while averaging 8.4 yards per play. It finished the game with 10 plays of at least 20 yards.

Despite allowing those gaudy offensive numbers, Colorado (1-7, 1-4) remained competitive for much of the first half. On a third-and-12 late in the second quarter, Buffaloes quarterback J.T. Shrout found freshman wide receiver Jordyn Tyson in stride for a 58-yard touchdown to get within 21-17. The Sun Devils, however, responded with a nine-play, 75-yard drive, capped by a 1-yard touchdown plunge from Valladay.

Arizona State led by at least 15 points for much of the second half, but an 88-yard punt return for a touchdown from Tyson got Colorado within 42-34 with 3:50 remaining. The Sun Devils were able to mount a seven-play, 36-yard drive that ran out the clock.

Valladay, the Football Bowl Subdivision active leader in career yards rushing, ran for 118 yards, giving the Wyoming transfer more than 4,000 for his career.

Shrout was 13-of-34 passing for 222 yards with two touchdowns. Tyson had 115 yards receiving along with his two touchdowns, the third-highest total for a true freshman in program history. Deion Smith added 111 yards rushing and a score for the Buffaloes.

THE TAKEAWAY

In a battle of teams with interim head coaches, Arizona State earned its second-consecutive victory against Colorado. It scored a combined 77 points in those contests.

With the loss, the Buffaloes secured their 15th sub-.500 record in the past 17 seasons. In the previous 21 seasons, they finished with a losing record just three times.
