San Diego State rushed for 100 yards on 21 plays, but 66 came on two plays.

For the second straight week the Aztecs offensive line was ineffective. The vastly improved Bulldogs take on UNLV next week.

The victory gave the Bulldogs a 4-0 record in conference play and a two-game lead over the Aztecs in the West Division, plus a head-to-head tiebreaker, and the division is not full of emerging challengers.

Hokit is the first Fresno State running back with three rushing touchdowns in a game since Ryan Mathews had three in a 53-52 win at IL in 2009.

McMaryion, on the Bulldogs' next series, hit KeeSean Johnson with a 33-yard pass to set up Hokit for a third touchdown run, this one from 4 yards out.

Penny came into the contest averaging 149.43 rushing yards per game, but managed only 69 yards on 15 carries against the Bulldogs. Hokit finished with 14 carries for 77 yards, Jordan Mims had 112 yards rushing and Marcus McMaryion was 10-of-16 passing for 176 yards for Fresno State.

Fresno State defeated San Diego State 27-3 on the road Saturday, reclaiming the Old Oil Can Trophy for the first time since 2014.

A 45-yard run by sophomore running back Juwan Washington - his longest of the season - put the Aztecs into field goal position.

But that was about the only success the offense had against a stout Fresno defense. The run completed a six-play drive, which included a 30 yard pass-and-catch to junior wide receiver Da'Mari Scott.

The Bulldogs scored the last points of the first half on a 38-yard field goal by senior kicker Jimmy Camacho with 2:14 left, pushing its lead to 17-3. He combined for 122 yards rushing in back-to-back losses.
