In a 35-0 win last Friday over No. 6 Oak Ridge, Folsom quarterback Jake Browning had an off night - for him.
The talented junior and state touchdown leader passed for 362 yards and three touchdowns, but he also was intercepted four times.
Browning was back on target on Friday night at home in leading the Bulldogs (7-0, 2-0) to a 56-14 Delta River League homecoming win against No. 11 Jesuit (6-1, 1-1).
The junior threw for five touchdowns, giving him 38 for the season, rushed for another and did not throw an interception as the Bulldogs beat an undefeated team for the second week in a row. Oak Ridge was 5-0 coming into last week's league opener.
Browning completed 15 of 16 passes in leading Folsom (7-0, 2-0) to a 42-14 halftime lead. He finished 29 of 36 for 443 yards.
Josiah Deguara had nine catches for 128 yards and two touchdowns; Will McClure four catches for 135 yards and a touchdown; and Troy Knox seven catches for 85 yards and was selected homecoming king.
Jason Elenberger threw a 25-yard touchdown pass to Isaiah Bailey, sophomore Beau Bisharat scored on a 24-yard run and Austin Gates had nine tackles to lead Jesuit (6-1, 1-1).
The Folsom win was its 46th in the last 51 games dating back to the 2010 season in which the Bulldogs lost their opener to Grant, avenged that loss to the Pacers in the D-II section finals, then beat Serra of Gardena for the CIF State Bowl title.
Folsom, ranked No. 3 in the state by Cal-Hi Sports, will play Friday at Sheldon.
Despite the loss, the Marauders are off to their best start since starting 6-1 in 2007, a team that eventually finished 8-3 overall, 4-1 in league and lost to Vacaville in the playoff opener.
Next up for Jesuit is Pleasant Grove next Saturday in Carmichael.
