Senior Kellen Moore closed his collegiate 24, in the Maaco Bowl Las Vegas on Thursday night.
Moore, already the Football Bowl Subdivision's all-time winningest quarterback, threw for 266 yards and two touchdowns to notch career win No. 50. Fellow senior Doug Martin returned the opening kickoff 100 yards for a touchdown and added 151 rushing yards for the Broncos (12-1), whose only loss this season came to TCU on November 12.
Arizona State, meanwhile, ended the season in disarray.
Head coach Dennis Erickson guided the Sun Devils (6-7) on Thursday night despite being told in late November that he would not be brought back for a sixth year. Brock Osweiler completed 29-of-46 passes for 390 yards, two touchdowns and an interception, as rudderless ASU finished the season with five consecutive losses.
