FORT COLLINS, Colo. — Kapri Bibbs ran for three touchdowns, Garrett Grayson threw for 395 yards and three TDs and Colorado State clinched its first bowl bid in five years with a 58-13 rout of Air Force on Saturday.

Bibbs leads all FBS players with 28 touchdown runs, two more than Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds. His seven games with three or more TD runs is an FBS record.

Grayson topped Terry Nugent's school record for yards passing in a season with a 49-yard touchdown toss to Jordon Vaden in the third quarter, which gave him 3,327 yards on the season.

The Falcons were in danger of being shut out for the first time since 1992 and of their biggest margin of defeat in their history until scoring two TDs in the final five minutes. But this still was their worst loss to the Rams in this series that dates to 1957.
