Tags: fresno hokit yard

Fresno, Calif. (AP) — Josh Hokit accounted for three touchdowns and the Fresno State defense limited Incarnate Word to minus-7 yards rushing on Saturday night to help the Bulldogs beat the Cardinals 66-0 in the season opener for both teams.

Hokit, a sophomore running back, had two short rushing touchdowns and hit Jared Rice for a 65-yard score.

Emeka Ndoh recovered his own strip-sack of Taylor Laird and, six plays later, a 1-yard touchdown run by Hokit gave Fresno State a 7-0 with 6:51 left in the first quarter.

Incarnate Word went three-and-out on each of its next seven possessions and the Bulldogs took a 34-0 lead into halftime.

Fresno State sandwiched back-to-back safeties — the second of which came on another sack by Ndoh — around a 30-yard touchdown run by Ronnie Rivers to open the third quarter and make it 45-0.
