Fresno State loses perfect season in wild shootout

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - David Fales threw for 547 yards and six touchdowns in an entertaining showdown with Derek Carr and San Jose ended No. 16 Fresno State's run toward a possible BCS bowl with a 62-52 victory Friday.

Fales was every bit as good as the more heralded Carr, matching his six first-half touchdown passes in a near perfect performance that made the Spartans (6-6, 4-4 Mountain West) bowl eligible with their first win over a ranked opponent since 2000.

Carr threw for 519 yards and six touchdowns, but threw a fourth-quarter interception for the Bulldogs (10-1, 7-1). Davante Adams caught 13 passes for 264 yards and three scores.

The loss ended Fresno State's chances to beat out Northern Illinois for a spot in a prestigious BCS game. The Huskies are the only undefeated team from a non-automatic qualifying conference.

The Bulldogs will still play in the Mountain West title game next week.
