LAS VEGAS -- Oregon State kicker Justin Kahut converted a 33-yard field goal with seven seconds left to give the Beavers a 23-21 win over UNLV on Saturday night.
Teammate Jacquizz Rodgers rushed for 166 yards and a touchdown on 26 carries and had 65 receiving yards on 10 receptions. His brother, James, finished with 109 total yards and a receiving touchdown for the Beavers (2-0).
Backup quarterback Mike Clausen rallied UNLV (1-1) with two fourth-quarter touchdown passes which gave the Rebels a 21-20 lead with 4:16 left.
Oregon State, though, answered with a 12-play, 87-yard drive that culminated with Kahut's game-winning kick. It was redemption for Kahut, who in the first half missed a 47-yarder off the left post and an extra point.
The Beavers built a 20-7 lead on third-quarter touchdowns by the Rodgers brothers and a 1-yard pass from Sean Canfield to Brady Camp with 1:04 left in the second quarter, the only points of the first half.
Canfield was 25-of-31 for 198 yards and two touchdowns.
Phillip Payne caught the last Clausen touchdown pass, a 10-yarder, while Rodelin Anthony had a 13-yard reception with 10:53 remaining. Clausen was 6-of-9 for 58 yards in the quarter and replaced Omar Clayton, who left with a sore knee, to start the fourth quarter.
Clayton threw for 170 yards and a touchdown on 18-of-26 passing.
Rebels receiver Ryan Wolfe had 91 yards on nine receptions.
