FRESNO, Calif. -- 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.
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.
