San Diego State 38, Arizona 14

TUSCON, Ariz. - Senior Jordan Brookshire threw for two touchdowns and ran for another, Greg Bell broke a 55-yard scoring run on the fourth play from scrimmage and San Diego State beat Arizona 38-14 to extend the Wildcats' losing streak to 14 games.

Brookshire, who won the starting job late in fall camp, completed 9 of 11 passes for two scores in the first half as the Aztecs took a 35-7 lead.

"I think this (offense) can be very dangerous," Brookshire said. "We have so many playmakers. First of all, we have a great line. We have so many guys we can go to."

Brookshire finished 10 of 14 for 183 yards and Bell had 125 yards rushing in 17 carries as the Aztecs opened 2-0 for the third straight season.

San Diego State had 454 total yards, 271 rushing.

Bell's 55-yard touchdown burst over the right side was an early indicator.

After Arizona (0-2) went three-and-out, Brookshire completed a 73-yard pass to Daniel Bellinger to set up a 3-yard scoring run. Bellinger had three catches for 113 yards.

"Some of the plays getting Bellinger off was something that was a little different that they haven't seen," San Diego State coach Brady Hoke said.

San Diego State's Tyrell Shavers returned a blocked punt 27 yards for a score after Arizona's second three-and-out, and it was 21-0 less than eight minutes into the game.

"We just never could get in the game," Arizona coach Jedd Fisch said. "We couldn't do anything on offense, and when you can't do anything on offense, it is really hard on the defense."

Arizona's Gunner Cruz, who threw for 336 yards in a season-opening 24-16 loss to BYU last week, was 10 of 19 for 70 yards with a 43-yard scoring pass to Stanley Berryhill III and an interception.

Will Plummer was 8 of 17 for 109 yards and a 7-yard touchdown pass to Tayvian Cunningham in the fourth quarter after replacing Cruz late in the third.

"I am completely unsure go what we will do at the quarterback position," Fisch said. "One of them will start (next week). I wanted to see if we could get a spark. A different dynamic with Will."
