Back-to-back road wins also have included 2004 (beat Northwestern 30-21 on Sept. 11 and then won at Oregon 28-13 on Oct. 2 en route to a 9-3 mark) and 2002 (won at San Diego State 39-28 on Sept. 14 and then had one of the best wins in school history with a 45-42 win at No. 6 Oregon on Oct. 19 as it went 8-6).
New career high
Taylor Kelly set a new career high with five passing touchdowns. Four of them went to running backs and one went to wide receiver Richard Smith. He found Grice three times and DJ Foster once. His five touchdowns are tied for fourth all-time for touchdown passes in a single game.
Taking care of the ball
Kelly hasn't thrown an interception in 99 attempts since throwing a pick on the final play of the Missouri game (26 attempts vs. Utah, 45 attempts at Cal, 28 attempts at Colorado)
Stopping the run
ASU held Colorado to a season-low 75 net rushing yards. They had 32 attempts and averaged 2.3 yards per carry. The previous season low was 88 yards against NAU.
Thrice for Grice
Marion Grice had three receiving touchdowns and five receptions for 101 yards. Grice has touched the ball 50 times this season and has nine touchdowns. That means that 18 percent of the time Grice touches the ball, he finds the endzone.
Ross goes 100 yards...in high altitude
Rashad Ross took the opening kick of the second half back for a 100-yard touchdown. Ross is just the fifth player in school history to record a 100-yard kickoff return. He also returned the opening kick of the second half against Boise State back 98 yards for a touchdown.
