After the second half near-collapse in Hawaii a week ago, Fresno State made certain there would not be a repeat in Idaho. The Bulldogs got nearly 390 yards and 5 touchdowns in just the first half from Derek Carr, and a 47-0 halftime advantage ended 61-14.
The Bulldogs scored touchdowns on their first five possessions, and looked unstoppable at times, including a stretch where 17 of 19 plays were good for at least nine yards and/or a score. When it was all over, the 734 yards of total offense were just 23 shy of tying the single game school record.
Sophomore wide receiver Davante Adams did tie a school record with his 16 receptions, and set a personal mark with three receiving touchdowns, all in the first half. The Heisman candidate Carr set a school record with his 14th career 300 yard passing game, and is now just two touchdown passes short of tying Paul Pinegar's school record of 84.
The 'Dogs also got much better run production, with Marteze Waller going for a career high 157 yards and two touchdowns, and Josh Quezada adding another 64 yards.
Defensively, Fresno State turned the Vandals over five times, and totaled six sacks, one of which counted for a safety.
The unbeaten Bulldogs now have a week off before a homecoming game against UNLV, at 7 p.m. on Saturday, October 19.
