UNLV 34, New Mexico 17

BY foxsports • October 25, 2009

The Rebels (3-5, 1-3 Mountain West) finally ended their school-record 20-game losing streak in conference road contests and took some of the pressure off coach Mike Sanford, who has faced recent criticism because he has just 14 wins over five seasons.

Mike Locksley, New Mexico's first-year coach, wasn't at the stadium while he served the final night of a 10-day suspension for his role in a physical altercation with an assistant last month. Defensive backs coach George Barlow wore the main headset for the Lobos (0-7, 0-3).
