FRESNO, Calif. — Robbie Rouse set the Fresno State all-time rushing record on a 94-yard run that gave him four touchdowns in the first quarter as the Bulldogs rolled past winless Colorado 69-14 on Saturday night.
Rouse's long run that tied the school record for a single play helped him pass Ron Rivers as the leading rusher in Bulldogs history. Rouse ran for 144 yards on the night, giving him 3,519 to Rivers' 3,473.
Rouse started the rout with a 4-yard TD run on the first drive for Fresno State (2-1) and also caught TD passes of 9 and 12 yards from Derek Carr as the Bulldogs broke out to a 35-0 first-quarter lead and were up 55-7 at the half.
Colorado (0-3), coming off a 30-28 loss to Sacramento State of the FCS, is off to its worst start since losing its first six games in 2006. The Buffaloes got there by playing perhaps their worst half of football ever.
Colorado was outgained 516-123 in the first half, and the Bulldogs had twice as many touchdowns (eight) as the Buffaloes had first downs (four). It was the most yards allowed in any half by Colorado and one point shy of UCLA's 56-point first half in 1980 against the Buffaloes.
