Freshman Ryan Taylor blocked a Dixie State punt, scooped up the ball and ran two yards for another touchdown. Then freshman linebacker Kenny Jackson recovered a Dixie State fumble and ran 32 yards for the third score and a 37-0 Mustang lead.
With the victory, Cal Poly improved to 4-3 on the year, while Dixie State fell to 4-5.
