Achievements and other numbers and notes from Fresno State's 42-37 victory over Hawaii in a Mountain West Conference game in Honolulu:
Players of the game
Derek Carr: Fresno State QB set school record with 14th 300-yard game, by halftime, finishing with 419 and five touchdowns.
Davante Adams: Sophomore WR followed perhaps career-worst game vs. Hawaii with maybe his best: 16 catches, 185 yards, three TDs.
Nikko Motta: Senior DE keyed 1st-team defense that pitched shutout, with one of Bulldogs' four interceptions, 11/2 of team's six sacks.
Play of the game
First quarter, 7:48 remaining: On the second drive of the game for Fresno State, Derek Carr sees Davante Adams in one-on-one coverage down the left sideline. Carr delivers a back-shoulder throw, Adams makes a one-handed catch and spins into the end zone for a 14-0 Fresno State lead — part of a 47-point half that all but buried the Vandals.
By the numbers
13: First-half catches by Fresno State's Davante Adams, a school record for any half; the old record was nine
10:54: Time of possession for Idaho in the first quarter, which still ended with Fresno State up 28-0.
46:49: Elapsed game time before Idaho scored
312: Total rushing yards by Fresno State, including career-high 157 on 19 carries by Marteze Waller
390: Derek Carr's first-half passing yards, on 31 completions

Oct. 19 vs. UNLV: Bulldogs get a bye before welcoming UNLV to Bulldog Stadium for homecoming. It will be Fresno State's first meeting with the Rebels since 1997, when both were in the Western Athletic Conference. Fresno State will be looking to go 10-0 at home under coach Tim DeRuyter.
Carr passes big bro: Quarterback Derek Carr set a school record for the most 300-yard passing games in a career with 14, breaking a tie with brother David.
The senior completed 37 of 48 passes for 419 yards and five touchdowns and one interception. It was Carr's third 400-yard game this season. He needs two TDs to tie Paul Pinegar's school record of 84.
Happy anniversary: Fresno State's 734 total yards fell 23 yards short of the school-record 757 amassed 22 years ago to the day vs. New Mexico in 1991.
Thirst for firsts: It was a day of firsts for a handful of Fresno State players.
Defensive end Nikko Motta recorded a sack on the first play from scrimmage and finished with two on the night. But the senior also made his first career interception, catching a deflected pass after safety Derron Smith blitzed and disrupted quarterback Chad Chalich.
Safety Charles Washington also got his first career pick after making the catch off a first-quarter deflection.
Cornerback Curtis Riley's first interception, off Idaho backup Joshua McCain, gave the Bulldogs the ball at the Idaho 26 and set up Fresno State's final touchdown.
Reserve running back Darryl Cash scored on a 1-yard run with 8:37 remaining for the first TD of the junior's career.
'Cat giveth, 'Cat taketh away: To help get the Bulldogs' ground game going, Fresno State used running back Malique Micenheimer in the wildcat. But after gaining 10 yards on his first two carries, Micenheimer fumbled the snap on what was the third straight direct snap. Micenheimer finished with seven carries for 47 yards.
Call to the bullpen: After building two games' worth of stats in the first three quarters, Carr sat the fourth as backups Brian Burrell and Myles Carr split reps.
Burrell, playing in just his second game, completed 1 of 2 passes for 3 yards and ran once for 11 yards — the third-down dash helping to set up Cash's short TD run. The redshirt freshman Myles, who made his college debut, threw an interception on his one throw. He did run twice for 12 yards while directing the offense in the latter half of the fourth quarter.
