Associated Press

SAN DIEGO -- Conner Hempel threw for 345 yards and four touchdowns as Harvard turned a close game into a runaway, defeating San Diego 42-20 on Saturday.

Defensive end Zach Hodges picked up a Mason Mills fumble and rumbled 53 yards for a touchdown to open the scoring. Paul Stanton Jr. rushed 11 yards for a touchdown in the second quarter and Harvard (1-0) held a one-point lead at half, 14-13.

Hempel took over in the second half, tossing four touchdown passes to three receivers to lead the onslaught.

Mills went 27 of 46 for 293 yards and hooked up with Reggie Bell (7 catches, 101 yards) for a 12-yard fourth quarter touchdown. Mills was intercepted on the next possession leading to Harvard's final touchdown, a 30-yard toss from Hempel to Andrew Fischer -- his second score of the day.

Harvard defeated San Diego (1-2) in its opener for the second consecutive season.
