LAS VEGAS (AP) — Bruce Natson's 12-yard rushing touchdown with 3:56 left in the game capped an 11-play, 82-yard drive and gave Utah State a 28-24 victory over UNLV Saturday night.
With the win, the Aggies became bowl eligible for the third consecutive season.
Utah State (6-4, 5-1 Mountain West), which won the Western Athletic Conference last season, has now won 10 straight league road games.
Quarterback Darell Garretson led Utah State's offensive attack, completing 16 of 28 pass attempts for 288 yards and one touchdown strike while registering a 155.3 quarterback rating.
The Rebels (5-5, 3-3) suffered their second consecutive home loss, and remain one win shy of being bowl eligible. The last time UNLV appeared in a bowl game was in 2000.
