TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - Brock Osweiler threw for 307 yards and two touchdowns, Cameron Marshall added three scores on the ground and No. 23 Arizona State avoided a letdown with a 48-14 rout over Colorado on Saturday.
In control of the Pac-12 South, Arizona State couldn't afford a slip-up against an injury-riddled, 31-point underdog.
The Sun Devils (6-2, 4-1 Pac-12) made sure there wasn't one with a dominating performance, manhandling the Buffaloes on both sides of the ball while jumping out to a 21-point lead in the first quarter.
Marshall finished with 114 yards on 15 carries, Arizona State had 522 total yards and its defense forced five turnovers to stay ahead of UCLA in the division race.
Colorado (1-8, 0-5) couldn't stop Arizona State's passing, its running or hold onto the ball on offense for its 22nd straight road loss and sixth straight overall.
