By  | 

FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) -- Garrett Grayson and Kapri Bibbs accounted for six touchdowns as Colorado State held off UTEP and prolific Jameill Showers, 59-42 on Saturday.

Grayson passed for three TDs and a career-high 307 yards. UTEP's Showers passed for 365 yards and five TDs as he rallied the Miners (1-3) in the second half.

Colorado State (2-3) jumped out early on Grayson TD passes of 22 and 5 yards in the opening quarter. But the Rams needed a sack on Showers for a safety to halt a 21-point UTEP rally that tied the game 28-28 late in the third quarter. Three plays after Showers was sacked in the end zone, Grayson found Rashard Higgins down the right side for a 56-yard scoring play, making it 37-28.

Bibbs rushed for a game-high 147 yards and his final two scores, in the fourth quarter, kept UTEP at bay.
