CAL POLY, Calif. (AP) -- Anthony Garnett passed for four
touchdowns and ran for another to lead undefeated Cal Poly past
Texas State 38-21 Saturday.
Garnett threw a 25-yard touchdown pass to Jason Holmes less than
five minutes into the game and followed that two minutes later with
a four-yard touchdown run to go up 14-0. The Mustangs (6-0) were at
least two touchdowns ahead the rest of the way.
Garnett, who went 11-for-15 for 326 yards passing and ran for 74
yards, completed touchdown passes of 88 and 11 yards in the second
quarter to give Cal Poly a 35-14 halftime lead.
Texas State's Barrick Nealy threw three touchdown passes,
including two to John Tyson. Nealy finished 13-for-28 for 290 yards
with one interception.
In a second half where both teams were slowed by driving rain,
Cal Poly managed just a field goal, and Nealy threw his second
touchdown pass to Tyson for Texas State (2-4).
Cal Poly's Geno Randle ran for 102 yards on 11 carries, the
fifth 100-yard rushing performance of his career.
Darrell Jones led the Mustangs with six catches for 145 yards.
