San Diego State 27, Nevada 10

SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Matt Dlugolecki passed for 262 yards and two touchdowns, as San Diego State topped Nevada 27-10 Saturday night.

The Aztecs, who held a 17-3 halftime lead, recorded their fourth-straight home victory for the first time since 1998-99.

Nevada (2-2) came into the game averaging 39.3 points per game this season, 17th best in the nation. But the Wolf Pack needed a late touchdown to avoid being held to its lowest total in 284 games.

After a scoreless third quarter, San Diego State (2-1) increased its lead to 24-3 on a 19-yard touchdown reception by Ramal Porter with 9:30 left in the game. It came two plays after an interception by Marviel Underwood as part of a quick exchange of turnovers.

Nevada's Chris Barry first recovered a fumble at the Wolf Pack 21. But two plays later, Underwood had his interception off a deflection to give the Aztecs the ball at Nevada 25.

The Wolf Pack, down 27-3, scored with 53 seconds left on a 3-yard touchdown run by Chance Kretschmer.

Nevada starting quarterback Jeff Rowe, who was pulled late in the fourth quarter, went 19-for-40 for 204 yards with two interceptions.

Dlugolecki completed 23 of 40 attempts with two interceptions. Jeff Webb helped lead the Aztecs with nine catches for 101 yards, including a 23-yard touchdown reception in the first quarter.
