The Arizona State senior, coming off a subpar performance in an upset loss at Oregon State, threw for four touchdowns and the No. 13 Sun Devils dominated the second half for a 52-31 victory over Washington State on Saturday.
Redshirt freshman Luke Falk, in his second start after Connor Halliday went down with a season-ending injury, passed for 601 yards for Washington State (3-8, 2-6) but was intercepted four times and fumbled the ball away once.
Sun Devils defensive end Marcus Hardison had an interception, forced fumble and sack.
Taylor, one of 11 seniors left from the Dennis Erickson era, was a three-year starter under coach Todd Graham, who stood steadfastly by his quarterback when some called for a change because of his late-season struggles.
The Sun Devils, also 13th in the College Football Playoff rankings, scored 31 straight points in the second half before the Cougars managed a touchdown with 24 seconds to play.
Washington State marched quickly downfield, though, and Quentin Breshears' 27-yard field goal as time expired gave the Cougars a 24-21 halftime lead.
The Sun Devils' hopes for a college playoff spot were dashed a week earlier in a loss at Oregon State, and Taylor had a subpar performance in that game.
