SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. (AP) Sam Huard passed for 333 yards and two touchdowns, including a go-ahead 4-yard scoring strike to Bryson Allen in the fourth quarter, and Cal Poly beat Northern Colorado 24-17 Saturday night to snap a four-game skid.

Huard completed 31 of 39 passes with two interceptions. Allen finished with seven receptions for 90 yards and Mark Biggins had 77 yards rushing, including a 1-yard TD, on 14 carries for Cal Poly (3-5, 1-4 Big Sky Conference).

Logan Booher caught an 8-yard touchdown pass from Huard that made it 14-10 early in the second quarter and the Mustangs never again trailed. Noah Sema kicked a 36-yard field goal to make it a seven-point lead at halftime.

Northern Colorado (0-7, 0-4) has lost eight in a row dating to last season and 13 of its last 14 since a 35-14 home win over Idaho State on Sept. 24, 2022.

Northern Colorado's Jamarii Robinson caught a 16-yard touchdown pass from Jacob Sirmon to make it 17-all with 8:03 left in the third quarter, but the Bears went three-and-out on each of their three remaining possessions.

Cal Poly's final drive began at its 24-yard line with 8:12 to play and the Bears used a 16-play, 68-yard drive - including three third-down conversions - to bleed the rest of the clock.
