FRESNO, Calif. (AP) - KeeSean Johnson had seven receptions for 104 yards and a career-high tying three touchdowns and the Fresno State defense forced six turnovers - including three on downs - to help the Bulldogs beat Nevada 41-21 on Saturday night.

Marcus McMaryion completed 24 of 32 passes for 296 yards and two touchdowns and Ronnie Rivers had 12 carries for 82 yards and a score for Fresno State (2-2, 1-0 Mountain West).

Jamire Jordan returned the opening kickoff 71 yards to set up a 10-yard scoring catch by Johnson on the fourth play from scrimmage. After James Bailey blocked Nevada’s 45-yard field-goal attempt, Fresno State’s Jimmy Camacho hit a 29-yard field goal at the end of the first quarter. Nevada went three-and-out on its next three drives - during that span, Josh Hokit hit Johnson on a halfback pass for a 16-yard touchdown - before Jaron Bryant’s 18-yard interception return for a touchdown made it 24-0 with 5:05 left in the first half.

Wyatt Demps had a career-high 10 receptions for 96 yards and a touchdown for Nevada (0-5, 0-1). The Wolfpack finished with 23 carries for 61 yards.
