ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — The UNLV duo of quarterback Caleb Herring and receiver Devante Davis hooked up on three touchdowns Saturday to overcome New Mexico's record-setting ground attack in the Rebels' 56-42 victory Saturday.
The win snaps UNLV's 23-game road losing streak.
Herring, who finished with four touchdown passes, found Davis on a 7-yard scoring pass with 4:46 to go to put UNLV (3-2, 1-0 Mountain West) up to stay. And Rebels running back Tim Cornett capped his career night with a 75-yard scoring run 1:31 later for his third touchdown, finishing with a career high 179 yards on 25 carries.
The Lobos had three rushers gain more than 100 yards for the first time in school history, led by Kasey Carrier's 192 yards on 25 carries.
Carlos Wiggins had three touchdowns while combining for 176 yards rushing and receiving while quarterback Cole Gautsche completed the 100-yard trio with 108 yards on 18 carries.
Davis finished with a career-high 10 catches for 164 yards while Herring went 24-34 for 293 yards.
The Lobos (1-3, 0-1) built an early 14-0 lead with Gautsche tossing an option pitch five yards beyond the line of scrimmage, leading to a 62-yard scoring run down the sidelines for Wiggins.
UNLV began its comeback midway through the first quarter when Marcus Sullivan took an end around 69 yards for a score. Then the Rebels quickly cashed in a New Mexico fumble at its own 34 with Cornett going in from four yards out to tie it.
