ASU’s Benjamin reaches century mark for third straight game at Colorado

Arizona State running back Eno Benjamin continued his dominant pace against the Colorado Buffaloes on Saturday.

Not only did he eclipse the 100-yard mark for a third straight game, he also found pay dirt for a seventh time in three contests.

After posting a 312-yard, three-touchdown performance on the ground against Oregon State, Benjamin continued to be a thorn in opposing defenses’ sides.

Leaping over the pile, the sophomore made it 7-0 ASU in the first quarter.

He wouldn’t have to wait long to get another crack at the end zone, either.

Tied 7-7 in the second quarter, Benjamin broke the stalemate, rumbling a yard for his second score of the day.

With the two one-yard touchdown runs, Benjamin has scored a total of five times on the ground — and one through the air — in his last two games. Averaging over four yards a carry, He chipped in 96 yards before halftime with the score tied 14-14. He wouldn’t waste any time reaching the century mark for the third straight game in the third quarter.

Injuries to wide receiver N’Keal Harry and Manny Wilkins limited the team’s offense in the second half as the Sun Devils were only able to score once more in their 28-21 loss.

Benjamin finished the day rushing for 120 yards and two touchdowns on 28 carries.

Through six games, the sophomore running back has rushed for 715 yards and seven scores on 126 carries with four games of over 100 yards. He’s also been used in the passing game, catching 23 balls for 156 yards and two touchdowns.
