Transfer Dee Hart rushed for 139 yards and two touchdowns in his Colorado State debut to help the Rams rally for a 31-17 win over Colorado on Friday night.

Colorado State's Treyous Jarrells finished with 121 yards, giving the Rams two 100-yard running backs in a game for the first time since 1996.

Trailing most of the contest, Garrett Grayson put Colorado State on top for good with a 16-yard TD pass to Rashard Higgins early in the fourth quarter. Hart extended the lead minutes later with a 3-yard rush as the Rams beat the Buffs for a second time in three seasons.

Sefo Liufau threw for 241 yards and a pair of touchdowns to Nelson Spruce for Colorado.

Hart spent three seasons at Alabama, where he appeared in 17 games and carried the ball 43 times for 172 yards. He joined the Rams this fall as a graduate student.
