2. Colorado 28, Arizona State 21
Steven Montez keeps on being Steven Montez.
He didn’t throw any picks, he cranked up 328 yards and two touchdowns, and he helped Colorado to stay perfect. But it also helped to have Laviska Shenault to work with.
Shenault isn’t the nation’s best all-around receiver in the first half of the season, he’s not far off. He hit ASU for 13 catches for 127 yards and two scores, and he ran for two more scores. The Buffs needed all the help.
ASU hung around, with Eno Benjamin rocking after his big game against Oregon State for 120 yards and two scores, and Manny Wilkins wasn’t bad – throwing for 222 yards and a score – but the defensive front didn’t so what the ASU defensive front normally does. It didn’t get into the backfield enough, and it didn’t get to Montez.
That’s where the Colorado offensive line came in.
The Buff skill guys got their chances to produce, and they came through, keeping the ball for almost seven minutes more than the Sun Devils, converting half of their third down chances and both fourth down tries.
It keeps on going for the Buffs keeping their record perfect. They’re showing they have the quarterback and receiver combo to keep it all going.
