Adams left the game with a shoulder injury and was relieved by Anthony Vitto, who threw a 54-yard strike to Shaquille Hill on the next series. Mario Brown rushed for a 34-yard score to put the Eagles up by 32.
Cal Poly (5-6, 4-3) added three late touchdowns, with Chris Brown throwing a 25-yard score to Cole Stanford and running for a five-yard touchdown.
