Fresno State went ahead 7-3 early in the second quarter on a 23-yard scoring hookup between Burrell and Harper.

The Lobos regained control later in the frame with a pair of rushing scores. First Pressley ripped off an 18-yard touchdown run, then four minutes later Jordan added a 26-yard score to put the home team up, 17-7.
