INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- San Diego's Evan Harney punished Butler for the second straight year, rushing for 181 yards and two touchdowns Saturday in a 41-12 victory over the Bulldogs.

Last year, Harney had 147 yards and scored four touchdowns in a 53-7 victory.

This time, his first TD, a 1-yard run, gave the Toreros (5-4, 2-1 Pioneer) the lead for the first time late in the second quarter. His second score, a 3-yard run late in the third period, pushed the lead to 31-12 and sealed the Toreros' third straight win.

Butler (1-8, 0-3) led 9-0 on a 1-yard TD pass from Ian Nelson to Kevin Housand and a 34-yard field goal by Eric Neumeier, but the Bulldogs' only other score came on Neumeier's 43-yard field goal early in the second half.

Todd Mortensen, who gave San Diego its first touchdown on a 13-yard pass to Michael Gasperson midway through the second quarter, also had a 2-yard TD pass to Dustin Owen in the third quarter and finished 22-of-31 for 210 yards. Gasperson had seven catches for 85 yards.

Nelson was 17-of-30 for 130 yards, along with two interceptions, and he was the Bulldogs' leading rusher with 49 yards on 14 carries.

The game marked the return to Indianapolis of first-year San Diego coach Jim Harbaugh, a former NFL quarterback with the Indianapolis Colts.
