Fresno State captains: 1, 4, 13, 98
Cal Poly won the toss and deferred to the second half. Fresno State received opening kickoff and defended the south goal.
The temperature at kickoff was 100 degrees.
On the game's opening drive, Josh Quezada got the ball on five-consecutive plays for a total of 33 yards. He had three rushes and two receptions. His last reception, a 14-yard play, gave the Bulldogs a first-and-10 at the Cal Poly 21-yard line.
Colin McGuire hit a 35-yard field goal at 11:48 for the first points of the game.
Kyrie Wilson had a sack for a loss of 10 yards at the four-minute mark.
Isaiah Burse scored a touchdown on a punt return of 61-yards at 2:33, his first career punt return for a touchdown. This is the third-straight season the Bulldogs have returned a punt for a TD.
Derek Carr hit Isaiah Burse on a 15-yard touchdown pass at 14:32. It was Carr's 22nd-straight game with a TD pass and his 15th since the 'Dogs joined the Mountain West. That streak is tied for the third-longest in MW history.
This is Isaiah Burse's first career game with two or more touchdowns.
Jeremiah Toma recovered a fumble at the Cal Poly 26-yard line at 13:54. It was his second career recovered fumble.
Marcel Jensen's 23-yard catch at 9:02 gave him 66-yards receiving on three catches. That is a new career-high in receiving yardage for the senior tight end.
Austin Wentworth, the Bulldogs' left tackle who made his 30th consecutive start on Saturday, scored the first touchdown of his career on a hook-and-ladder play at 6:21.
Isaiah Burse returned his second punt for a touchdown with 30 seconds left in the half, this one from 58 yards out. He tied the school record for punt returns for touchdowns in a single-game. Clifton Smith did the same against Weber State in 2005.
Burse also became just the third player in Mountain West history to return two punts for a touchdown in the same game, joining Steve Smith from Utah in 1999 and Dallas Davis from Colorado State, also in 1999.
Cal Poly only had 44 yards of total offense in the first half, which is the fewest yards allowed in a first half under Tim DeRuyter. The previous low was 64 yards against Colorado State in 2012.
Davante Adams caught a five-yard touchdown pass at 10:52, giving him a touchdown catch in 10-straight games. That expands upon the school and MW record that he already owned.
