(AP) Derek Carr threw for 412 yards and connected with Davante Adams on four touchdown passes on a record-setting homecoming night as No. 17 Fresno State beat UNLV 38-14 on Saturday for its best start in 12 seasons.


Carr and Adams set the tone against the Rebels (4-3, 2-1 Mountain West) with a 75-yard touchdown on the opening play of the game. The Bulldogs (6-0, 3-0) equaled their start in 2001 when Carr's older brother, David, led the team to six straight victories to open the season.


That streak ended 12 years to the day before this game in an upset loss to Boise State. Carr and Adams made sure there would be no similar disappointment this year and have the Bulldogs in their best position since then to get that long-awaited BCS berth. The first BCS standings will be released Sunday.


Carr completed 33 of 46 passes, breaking Paul Pinegar's career school records for completions and touchdowns with 849 and 85, respectively.
