LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Senior quarterback Caleb Herring threw five
touchdown passes and ran for another Saturday night, leading
UNLV to a 45-19 victory over San Diego State.
After falling behind 41 seconds into the game, when San Diego
State opened up a 7-0 lead after Colin Lockett hauled in a 39
yard pass from Quinn Kaehler, the Rebels scored 31 unanswered
points through the 11:36 mark of the third quarter, seized
control of the game and cruised to the win.
The Rebels (7-5, 5-3 Mountain West) outgained San Diego State
402-327, while their 45 points was their second biggest output
of the season. UNLV was a perfect 6-0 this season when scoring
30 or more points.
Herring's five touchdown passes were not only a career-high, but
also tied a school record for most in a single game. Herring's
No. 1 target on the night, Devante Davis, finished with eight
receptions for 171 yards and four touchdowns. Herring also
connected with Marcus Sullivan on a 32-yard TD strike.
Davis' four touchdown receptions tied him for the most in a
single game in UNLV history, while his 14 touchdowns in 2013 set
a new single-season record for the Rebels.
