FRESNO, Calif. (AP) — Jake Haener completed 24 of 29 passes for 327 yards and four touchdowns and Jordan Mims had 123 yards rushing and a TD on 18 carries to help Fresno State beat Hawaii 55-13 Saturday night.

Abraham Montano kicked a 31-yard field goal to open the scoring midway through the first quarter and Cam Lockridge returned an interception 31 yards for a touchdown before Jordan Mims scored on a 22-yard run to make it 17-0 going into the second.

Haener threw second-quarter touchdown passes of 7 yards to Jalen Moreno-Cropper and 16 yards to Erik Brooks to give Fresno State (5-4, 4-1 Mountain West Conference) a 31-0 lead at halftime. Moreno-Cropper finished with five receptions for 93 yards and two TDs.

The Bulldogs have won four in a row following a four-game losing streak.

Nasjzae Bryant-Lelei scored on a 1-yard run to get Hawaii (2-8, 1-4) on the board with 3:46 to play and Tamatoa Mokiao-Atimalala caught a 4-yard touchdown pass from Brayden Schager in the closing seconds.

The Rainbow Warriors have lost three in a row for the second time this season.
