Jayden de Laura was on another level Saturday against the Colorado Buffaloes.

In helping the Wildcats to a 43-20 win over CU to move to 3-2 on the year, de Laura tied an Arizona program record with six passing touchdowns. He completed 33 of his 46 pass attempts for 484 yards and six scores. He threw touchdowns to five different receivers — finding Jacob Cowing, Dorian Singer, Tetairoa McMillan, Michael Wiley, and Tanner McLachlan.

De Laura hit Wiley for his first score.

Then he hit Jacob Cowing with a dart for his second.

Then he hit Singer for No. 3.

McLachlan got No. 4.

He hit McMillan for No. 5 on a throw-back play.

And then he went back to Wiley for No. 6.


Arizona set multiple high-water marks with its offensive performance in the game. The 673 yards of offense are the most against a conference opponent in program history and the fifth-most in a single game all-time. The 495 passing yards as a team are the third-most in program history, and de Laura’s 512 yards of total offense are the third-most by an individual player in program history.

The Cats outgained Colorado 673-340 in the game and limited the Buffs to just seven points in the second half.

Even considering the quality of the opponent, it’s a night worth remembering for the Arizona offense.
