ALBUQUERQUE — Jared Roberts made a 41-yard field goal as time expired and Colorado State overcame a 22-point deficit to beat Washington State 48-45 today in the New Mexico Bowl.

With less than 2 minutes left, Colorado State’s Shaquil Barrett forced Cougars running back Jeremiah Laufasa to fumble at the Cougars 33. That set up Kapri Bibbs’ 1-yard run scoring and Donnell Alexander’s two-point conversion run that tied it with 33 seconds left. Then, Washington State’s Teondray Caldwell fumbled the kickoff return at the 24, setting up the winning field goal.

Garrett Grayson threw for 369 yards and Bibbs ran for 169 yards and three touchdowns for Colorado State (8-6). The Rams overcame three early turnovers, but were helped by Washington State’s two fumbles with less than 3 minutes remaining.

Connor Halliday threw touchdown passes to six receivers and finished with 410 yards for Washington State (6-7).
