SAN DIEGO -- Brett Smith threw two touchdown passes and ran for two scores as Wyoming held on for a 30-27 win over San Diego State on Saturday night.

Smith, a freshman, was 25 of 36 passing for 341 yards for the Cowboys (5-2, 2-0 Mountain West), who scored all of their points en route to a 30-13 halftime lead.

The Aztecs (4-3, 1-2) came back behind Ronnie Hillman's two touchdowns, one on a 99-yard run, in the third quarter to get within 30-27.

But Able Perez, who missed an extra-point try in the first half, missed field-goal attempts from 39 and 27 yards in the fourth quarter. The last miss came with 1:55 remaining.

Hillman, the nation's leading rusher, ran for 224 yards on 25 carries.

San Diego State finished with 539 yards of total offense. Wyoming, which had 396 yards in the first half, gained 500 yards, but had minus-1 yard in the fourth quarter.

The Aztecs scored on their first possession when Ryan Lindley hit Gavin Escobar with a 44-yard TD pass. Smith then led the Cowboys to touchdowns on their first four possessions.

Smith scored on runs of 2 and 20 yards. Smith also had TD passes of 26 and 11 yards to Chris McNeill, who had eight catches for 111 yards.

Daniel Sullivan hit a 33-yard field goal for Wyoming as time expired in the first half.

Hillman, who went over 1,000 yards rushing on the season, caught a 71-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter.

Lindley finished 13 of 27 for 247 yards but had the game's only turnover when he was intercepted by Tashaun Gipson at the Wyoming 5-yard line.
