SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. (AP) -- Sophomore quarterback Cameron Higgins threw for 399 yards and two touchdowns, and Trevyn Smith rushed for 137 yards and two scores as Weber State downed Cal Poly 49-35 in the first round of the Football Championship Subdivision playoffs.

Higgins connected with Tim Toone 10 times for 199 yards and a touchdown.

Backup quarterback Brendon Doyle even added a nine-yard touchdown pass to Cody Nakamura as the Wildcats rolled up 564 yards of total offense.

Cal Poly, which took Wisconsin to overtime a week earlier, had 548 yards of offense but make five costly turnovers after making just six during the regular season.

Jonathan Dally was intercepted four times, going 11 of 30 for 185 yards with two touchdowns. He did rush 23 times for 177 yards, but the Mustangs struggled to do much else offensively.

Ramses Barden caught both of Dallys touchdown passes, settling for 108 yards on two catches in the Walter Payton Award candidates final game with the Mustangs (8-3).

Weber State (10-3) travels to Montana in the second round.
