The senior completed 22 of 31 passes with eight completions going for more than 20 yards. He had TD passes of 52, 45, 20 and 15 yards with no interceptions.
Grayson has thrown for more than 400 yards in two consecutive games and is the first Colorado State player to do so since Terry Nugent in 1983. CSU improved to 2-1 on the season.
“Last week we lost, so it didn’t really mean much to me,” Grayson said. “It means a little more that I could help us get a win. … All I care about is winning, so I was very happy with the way we executed today.”
