Pasadena, CA (Sports Network) - Jordon James ran for 164 yards and two scores in No. 13 UCLA's 59-13 rout of New Mexico State.

Brett Hundley was 23-of-36 passing for 281 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions for the Bruins (3-0), who tallied 38 unanswered points in last week's 41-21 win over Nebraska in Lincoln.

Steven Manfro caught a touchdown pass and ran in for a score, while Devin Fuller and Shaquelle Evans each hauled in a TD pass in the triumph.

Brandon Betancourt ran for 95 yards and a touchdown for New Mexico State (0-4).

James' 4-yard TD run in the opening frame accounted for the only scoring in the first, but the Bruins' 24-point second turned the game into a rout.

Manfro hauled in a 20-yard score and ran for a 12-yard TD to make it 21-0 midway through the stanza. Ka'imi Fairbairn nailed a 38-yard field goal late in the half and Hundley's 21-yard TD strike to Fuller with 39 ticks to go until intermission gave the hosts a comfortable 31-point cushion at the break.

Hundley flipped a 7-yard TD pass to Evans and following a New Mexico State three-and-out, James ran for 13 and 23 yards before finishing the brisk 3-play sequence with a 19-yard TD run to make it 45-0 late in the third.

Andrew McDonald found Adam Shapiro for a 33-yard score early in the fourth to get the Aggies on the board.

A pair of Malcolm Jones 3-yard TD runs, sandwiched around a Betancourt 4-yard TD plunge, concluded the scoring. Maxwell Johnson missed the extra point on the Aggies' touchdown.
