FRESNO, Calif. (AP) - Marcus McMaryion threw two of his three touchdown passes to Jamire Jordan and finished 13 of 23 for 299 yards to help Fresno State beat New Mexico 38-0 Saturday night.

Fresno State (4-2, 3-0 Mountain West) has won three in a row and its two losses came on the road against then-No. 1 Alabama and then-No.6 Washington.

Jamire Jordan’s 70-yard touchdown reception opened the scoring with 4:30 left in the first quarter and McMaryion hit KeeSean Johnson on back-to-back plays of 70 and 12 yards - the latter a one-handed catch in the corner of the end zone - to make it 14-0. New Mexico (3-3, 1-1) was forced to punt on its next possession and, on third-and-17, McMaryion went 57-yards on a draw play, setting up a 4-yard touchdown run by Ronnie Rivers and the Bulldogs led 21-0 at the half.

After Jimmie Camacho made a 37-yard field goal, Jordan added a 32-yard scoring catch late in the third and Josh Hokit’s 12-yard TD run midway through the fourth quarter capped the scoring.

New Mexico converted 2 of 14 third downs, committed three turnovers and was scoreless for the first time since a 45-0 loss to Texas in 2012.

The Bulldogs have two shutouts- the first, a 66-0 win over Incarnate Word in the opener, was Fresno State’s first since 2009 - in a season for the first time since 1988.
