SAN DIEGO - Jordan Byrd returned a punt 66 yards for a touchdown and added a 53-yard scoring run to spark San Diego State to a 38-7 victory over FCS-member Idaho State.

San Diego State (1-1) spotted Idaho State (0-2) a 7-0 lead - on a 75-yard scoring strike from Tyler Vander Waal to Xavier Guillory two plays into the game - before scoring 38 straight points.

Byrd's punt return tied the score at the 11:58 mark and Braxton Burmeister ran 47 yards for a touchdown and a 14-7 first-quarter lead.

The Aztecs stretched their lead to 21-7 in the second quarter on Byrd's long TD run.

Jack Browning's 20-yard field goal increased San Diego State's advantage to 24-7 after three quarters.

Burmeister hooked up with Tyrell Shavers for a 14-yard score and Cam Davis added a 3-yard TD run in the final period for the Aztecs.

Burmeister completed 15 of 26 passes for 108 yards and ran for 80 more on eight carries.
