FRESNO, Calif. (AP) - Derek Carr threw for 536 yards and five touchdowns to make Fresno State's first Mountain West Conference game a success in a 52-40 victory against San Diego State on Saturday night.

Leon McFadden's 96-yard interception return for a touchdown gave the Aztecs (2-3, 0-1) a 40-36 lead with 9:09 remaining in the third quarter. But Carr hit Isaiah Burse with a 31-yard scoring toss to give Fresno State the lead back, 43-40. After a Bulldogs field goal, Carr found Rashad Evans for a 5-yard TD pass for the final margin.

Carr completed 42 of 56 passes for the Bulldogs (3-2, 1-0). He is the fourth quarterback in school history to throw for over 500 yards in a game, the first since his brother, David, threw for 531 yards in the 2001 Silicon Valley Classic bowl game against Michigan State.

Ryan Katz passed for 160 yards and two touchdowns and led San Diego State rushers with 89 yards on 13 carries, including a 67-yarder.
