Lippincott crossed the threshold on a 32-yard touchdown in the third quarter, which put Nevada (8-3, 7-0 Western Athletic Conference) up 49-6.

Kaepernick ran for 114 yards and two touchdowns while throwing for 96 yards and two more scores.

Marcus Allen had two touchdowns on five catches for New Mexico State (3-8, 1-5). Nevada outgained New Mexico State 671 yards to 232.
