BUIES CREEK, N.C. (AP) - Jonah Hodges carried it 19 times for 158 yards and two touchdowns, and San Diego returned two interceptions for scores en route to a 57-21 win over Campbell on Saturday for the Toreros’ first undefeated Pioneer Football League season since 2006.

San Diego (9-1, 8-0) led 23-14 at halftime, but Campbell pulled to 23-21 after Syd Holt’s 21-yard fumble return early in the third. Campbell (5-5, 3-4) forced a punt on the Toreros’ next possession, but Devyn Bryant intercepted Anthony Robbins’ pass and returned it 63 yards to give San Diego a 30-21 lead.

Jereke Armstrong’s 1-yard TD run with 4:31 left in the third made it 37-21, and the Toreros got a 32-yard pick-six from KJ Mahoney three plays later.

Hodges’ second TD run went for 80 yards and gave San Diego a 23-7 lead with 2:40 left in the first half.

Robbins passed for 208 yards and two touchdowns but had three interceptions. Aaron Blockmon caught six passes for 161 yards and a score.

San Diego is the first undefeated PFL champion since Dayton finished 8-0 in conference in 2010.
