SMU 36, San Jose State 13

DALLAS (AP) -- Chris Foster caught two touchdown passes for
Southern Methodist, which defeated San Jose State 36-13 on Saturday
night and snapped the nation's second-longest losing streak.

The Mustangs (1-3, 1-0 Western Athletic Conference) won for the
first time since a 24-21 victory against Tulsa on November 23,
2002, prompting fans to rush the field.

SMU's victory celebration was marred when fans tore down a goal
post. According to school officials, the goal post hit a student in
the head. The student was taken to a hospital by ambulance. His
name and condition weren't immediately available.

Army, a 40-3 loser to Connecticut on Saturday, has the longest
Division I-A losing streak at 18 games.

The 22 first-half points allowed by the Spartans (1-2, 0-1) were
more points than the Mustangs had scored in any game during their
15-game losing streak.

Foster had touchdown receptions of 5 and 33 yards.

Tony Eckert, a junior college transfer, started his first career
game at quarterback in place of the injured Chris Phillips. Eckert
led the Mustangs to touchdowns on the team's first two possessions.

SMU's Foy Munlin had a game-high 114 yards rushing, including a
32-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter.

The Mustangs put 36 points on the board after being outscored
103-7 in their last two games.

Backup quarterback Jerad Romo, who split time with Eckert,
caught a 22-yard touchdown pass from wide receiver Matt Rushbrook
on a reverse play in the second quarter.

Chester Coleman caught a 15-yard touchdown pass from Dale Rogers
for the Spartans' only touchdown late in the fourth quarter.
