Late Interception Sends Rams Home With 4th Straight Loss

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Quarterback Caleb Herring had a 5-yard touchdown run with 1:20 remaining to lift UNLV to a 38-35 victory over Colorado State on Saturday.

In a game with eight lead changes, Phillip Payne had two TD catches for the Rebels (2-5, 1-1 Mountain West) to break the school’s career record. The senior has 25 scoring receptions.

Pete Thomas was 17 of 30 for 230 yards and a touchdown for the Rams (3-5, 1-2), but a late scoring chance was denied when his deflected pass was intercepted by Tani Maka at the UNLV 28-yard line with 35 seconds remaining.

Chris Nwoke led Colorado State with 156 yards rushing on 23 carries. His touchdown from 4 yards out, set up by a long return of a blocked field goal, gave the Rams a 35-31 lead with 4:13 remaining.

Dionza Bradford had 122 yards on 21 carries for UNLV.
