SAN MARCOS, Texas (AP) - Gresch Jensen threw two second-half touchdown passes and ran for a third as Texas State pulled away after intermission to beat Nicholls, 24-3 in a nonconference clash on Saturday night.

Minutes later Jensen scored from a yard out, then hit Javen Banks with a 77-yard touchdown pass a minute into the fourth quarter.
Jensen finished 22 of 29 for 253 yards for Texas State (2-3). Caleb Twyford carried 17 times for 73 yards.
Chase Fourcade was 15 of 27 for 145 yards with an interception for Nicholls (2-2).
