SAN DIEGO (AP) - Ronnie Hillman ran for 178 yards and four touchdowns, including the game-winner on a 2-yard run with 1:09 left, to help San Diego State to a 35-28 win over Fresno State on Saturday night.

Hillman scored touchdowns on runs of 20, 2 and 2 yards before setting up his game-winning score with an 18-yard run with less than two minutes left.

San Diego State (8-4), which is likely to get a bowl bid, overcame a 21-point deficit.

Fresno State (4-9) built a 21-0 lead halfway through the second quarter after Isaiah Green scored on a 59-yard return of a blocked field goal, and Derek Carr's two touchdown passes.

But the Aztecs cut the lead to 21-14 at halftime before the second of Hillman's three short touchdown runs gave the Aztecs a 28-21 lead late in the third quarter. Robbie Rouse's 2-yard run tied the score in the fourth quarter.
