Senior slotback Deonte Williams went over the 100-yard mark for a single season school-record ninth time and scored three touchdowns as 19th ranked Cal Poly beat Idaho State, 70-14. The win on senior night at Spanos Stadium improves the Mustangs to 8-2 overall and 6-1 in the Big Sky Conference.
Williams rushed for 125 yards on 17 carries, he has 1,319 yards for the season which is the fourth best mark in school history. James Noble has the single season mark of 1,578 yards in 2005. Williams wasn't the only player to put up a big stat line. Senior quarterback Andre Broadous completed eight of 14 passes for 145 yards and three touchdowns while rushing for 49 yards. Senior middle linebacker Kennith Jackson had two interceptions in the first three minutes of the game.
Idaho State, which has given up 50 or more points in each of its last eight games, fell to 1-9 and 0-7.
Cal Poly scored the first 35 points of the game and ended with the most points since a 74-7 victory over Simon Fraser in 1969. The 56-point margin of victory is the most for the Mustangs since a 55-0 victory over Savannah State closing out the 2006 season.
Cal Poly produced a program record for rushing yards (505). The Mustangs gained 650 total yards and never punted.
The Mustangs are in a four-way tie for first place in the Big Sky with Northern Arizona, Eastern Washington and Montana. Each team is 6-1 in the conference. If Cal Poly can win its final regular season game next week at Northern Arizona it will clinch at least a share of the Big Sky title. Montana State plays at Montana and Eastern Washington plays at Portland State.
