Herring’s 6 TDs lead UNLV past San Diego St, 45-19

Senior quarterback Caleb Herring threw five touchdown passes and

ran for another Saturday night, leading UNLV to a 45-19 victory

over San Diego State.

After falling behind 41 seconds into the game, when San Diego

State opened up a 7-0 lead after Colin Lockett hauled in a 39 yard

pass from Quinn Kaehler, the Rebels scored 31 unanswered points

through the 11:36 mark of the third quarter, seized control of the

game and cruised to the win.

The Rebels (7-5, 5-3 Mountain West) outgained San Diego State

402-327, while their 45 points was their second biggest output of

the season. UNLV was a perfect 6-0 this season when scoring 30 or

more points.

Herring’s five touchdown passes were not only a career-high, but

also tied a school record for most in a single game. Herring’s No.

1 target on the night, Devante Davis, finished with eight

receptions for 171 yards and four touchdowns. Herring also

connected with Marcus Sullivan on a 32-yard TD strike.

Davis’ four touchdown receptions tied him for the most in a

single game in UNLV history, while his 14 touchdowns in 2013 set a

new single-season record for the Rebels.

Placekicker Nolan Kohorst kicked six extra points and one field

goal and became UNLV’s all-time leading scorer with 245 career

points.

San Diego State dropped to 7-5 overall and 6-2 in conference

play.

The Rebels are one of seven Mountain West Conference schools to

become bowl eligible this season.
