Golden Bear wipe out Aggies 41-13 as Army takes loss

AP , LAS CRUCES, NEW MEXICO

Justin Forsett ran for a career-high 234 yards and Joe Ayoob rushed for three touchdowns and threw for another score to help No. 13 California beat New Mexico State 41-13 on Friday.

Cal (4-0) scored on its first two possessions and was never in trouble, but the four-touchdown underdog Aggies (0-4) kept it interesting in the first half.

New Mexico State freshman Chris Williams' 94-yard kickoff return and Conor Foley's 28-yard field goal pulled the Aggies to 20-10 late in the second quarter.

A pair of second-half touchdowns by Ayoob from 5 and 8 yards broke it open. The Golden Bears, who came in averaging 264 yards rushing, had 311 yards rushing and 595 yards of total offense.

The Aggies made it tough on Cal kicker Tom Schneider. They blocked Schneider's first PAT attempt and Schneider missed a 40-yard attempt just before halftime after first-year coach Hal Mumme called three straight timeouts to try to ice him.

No. 22 Iowa State, 28, Army 21

At West Point, New York, Ryan Kock scored on two short runs in the fourth quarter and came back to beat Army, denying the Black Knights their first win over a ranked opponent since 1972.

Army (0-3) held Cyclones leading rusher Stevie Hicks to just 22 yards on nine carries, but the Black Knights couldn't stop Kock, a 6-1, 240-pound fullback, from bulling in from 4 and 3 yards out, the last score coming with 6:50 left in the game.

Meyer threw for 158 yards and two touchdowns but was intercepted three times. He finished 18-for-26.
