SAN DIEGO — Glasco Martin ran for three touchdowns, Nick Florence threw for two scores and ran for another, and Baylor overwhelmed UCLA, 49-26, in the Holiday Bowl on Thursday night.

Lache Seastrunk rushed 16 times for 138 yards and one score for Baylor, which outgained UCLA 494-362. The Bears came in leading the nation in total offense with 387.7 yards per game.

Florence’s 188 yards passing gave him 4,309 for the season, breaking Robert Griffin III’s 2011 school season record of 4,293.

Baylor’s defense came up big, too. The Bears sacked Brett Hundley six times, including two by Chris McAllister.

Baylor (8-5) won its final four games and five of six. UCLA (9-5) lost its final three.

The Bruins were never in this one. Baylor raced to a 21-0 lead by early in the second quarter on Glasco’s 4-yard run and Florence’s TD passes of 8 yards to Antwan Goodley and 55 yards to Tevin Reese.

Military Bowl

No. 24 San Jose State 29, Bowling Green 20: At Washington, David Fales, who led the nation in completion percentage during the regular season, completed 33-of-43 passes for 395 yards and two touchdowns to lead the Spartans to their 11th win of the season.

Fales led the drive that set up Austin Lopez’s 27-yard field goal with 4:43 remaining, and De’Leon Eskridge’s 1-yard run with 2:34 left provided the insurance.

San Jose State (11-2), in the national rankings for the first time since 1975, capped the year with a seven-game winning streak for its first 11-win season since 1940, a remarkable turnaround for a program that was 1-12 just two years ago in Mike MacIntyre’s first season as coach.

But MacIntyre left earlier this month for a bigger payday at Colorado, leaving defensive coordinator Kent Baer in charge for the bowl. Baer was interested in the job full-time, but the school instead hired San Diego’s Ron Caragher, who attended the game as an observer.

San Jose State defeated UC Davis, 45-13, on Sept. 8

Belk Bowl

Cincinnati 48, Duke 34: At Charlotte, N.C., Duke running back Josh Snead fumbled at the Cincinnati 5 with 1:20 left and Brendon Kay threw an 83-yard touchdown pass to Travis Kelce with 44 seconds to go, lifting the Bearcats to an improbable win over the Blue Devils.

Kay threw for 332 yards and his four scoring passes were a Belk Bowl record.

Duke appeared to have the game in hand and was driving for the go-ahead score — and its first bowl victory since 1961 — but the final 80 seconds proved disastrous. With the game tied at 34 and the Blue Devils positioning themselves for a winning field goal, Snead fumbled with 1:20 left and Bearcats defensive lineman John Williams recovered.

Kay then connected with Kelce down the middle for the go-ahead score.

Cincinnati (10-3) sealed it on the next series when Maalik Bomar came crashing into Duke quarterback Sean Renfree, forcing a deflection that Nick Temple returned 55 yards for a touchdown.

Renfree threw for 358 yards — another Belk Bowl record — for the Blue Devils (6-7).
