SAN JOSE ST 69, TEXAS EL PASO 41

11/8/2003

EL PASO, Texas (Ticker) -- San Jose State set a school record
for points as Scott Rislov passed for 543 yards and seven
touchdowns in a 69-41 Western Athletic Conference victory over
Texas-El Paso.

The Spartans (3-6, 2-4) topped the previous record of 65 set
against Fresno State on October 3, 1981.

San Jose State was on the other side of a lopsided score after
enduring losses of 65-3 to Florida and 77-14 to Boise State this
season.

Three different Spartans went over 100 receiving yards and nine
different players caught passes for San Jose State, which
bounced back from a 13-10 loss to Hawaii last week in which the
officials incorrectly let the clock run down in the final
seconds. All three catches by Courtney Anderson went for
touchdowns as he caught passes of 25, nine and 66 yards in the
second quarter.

Leon Pinky caught five passes for 109 yards, including scoring
strikes of 48 yards in the first quarter and 26 yards in the
fourth.

Tuati Wooden caught 10 passes for 136 yards, including a
six-yard strike with eight seconds left in the first half that
gave the Spartans a 48-20 halftime lead.

Damarcus Ingram and Lance Martin had touchdown runs for the
Spartans, who collected 664 yards.

Texas El-Paso (2-8, 1-4) rolled up 630 yards, but lost its
fourth straight game.

Howard Jackson of the Miners carried 17 times for 146 yards and
a touchdown.

UTEP scored 21 points in the fourth quarter, including two
touchdown passes by Orlando Cruz.
