SAN DIEGO (Ticker) -- Lynel Hamilton became the first true freshman in school history to rush for 100 yards in his debut as San Diego State posted a 19-9 victory over Division I-AA Eastern Washington.

Hamilton rushed for 113 yards and two touchdowns on 23 carries, helping the Aztecs break open the game in the second half after a sluggish start.

San Diego State managed only a 6-3 halftime lead on field goals of 35 and 22 yards by J.C. Mejia.

But Hamilton scored on a one-yard TD run with 6:45 left in the third quarter and 15-yard scamper with 12:46 left in the contest to make it 19-3.

Matt Dlugolecki and Adam Hall combined to complete 17-of-33 passes for 151 yards for the Aztecs.

Eastern Washington got a late score on Skyler Allen's 13-yard TD pass to Eric Kimble with 1:20 to go. Allen completed 14-of-22 passes for just 90 yards.
