HUNTSVILLE, Texas -- Tim Flanders rushed for 101 yards and Vincent Dotson blocked a punt to help led Sam Houston State to an 18-16 win over Cal Poly in the second round of the Football Championship Subdivision playoffs on Saturday.

On Saturday, the Bearkats were outgained 387-241 but they forced three turnovers.

Sam Houston senior Vincent Dotson blocked a Cal Poly punt early in the second quarter, and the ball bounced through the end zone for a safety. Miguel Antonio tacked on field goals of 20 and 32 yards before the end of the first half, and the Bearkats led 8-0 at the break.

The Mustangs (9-3) closed the gap on two field goals by Bobby Zalud in the third quarter. Sam Houston quarterback Brian Bell then threw an 18-yard touchdown pass to Keshawn Hill late in the third quarter.
