FRESNO, Calif. (AP) — Jordan Mims ran for two touchdowns in the first quarter and Fresno State used a fast start to cruise past FCS-member Cal Poly 35-7 in a season opener on Thursday night.

Mims sandwiched a pair of 1-yard TD runs around a 13-yard scoring run by Nikko Remigio to put the Bulldogs up 21-0 in the first quarter.

Jake Haener completed 35 of 41 passes for 370 yards and two second-half TDs for Fresno State. Mims finished with 76 yards on 15 carries. He added a 19-yard TD catch in the third quarter. Haener’s other scoring toss went to Raymond Pauwels and covered eight yards in the fourth period. Remigio had nine catches for 100 yards.

Freshman Jaden Jones completed 20 of 38 throws for 211 yards with a 9-yard TD toss to Bryson Allen for the Mustangs’ only score.
