San Diego State escapes with a narrow victory over UNLV

By

A missed 42 yard field goal from UNLV kicker Daniel Gutierrez with 37 seconds left, sealed the road victory for San Diego State. The Aztecs came out with a 20-17 win over the UNLV Rebels.  That. kick would have likely sent the game into overtime.

The Aztecs were first on the board about halfway through the first quarter when Agnew found wide reeciver Ethan Dedeaux for a 49 yard strike up the middle of the field.

Late in the first, the San Diego State scored another touchdown but this really surprising when safety Trenton Thompson blocked the punt and linebacker Caden Mcdonald recovered it for a touchdown that put the Aztecs up 14-0.

The Aztecs got on the board again with about 3 minutes left in the first. It occured when kicker Matt Ariaza kicked a 25 yard field goal.

The Rebels finally got on the board when quarterback  Kenyon Oblad pass found Randal Grimes wide open for 58 yards with 86 second left in the first half. At half, it was 17-7.

After a 3rd quarter field goals, by both the Rebels and Aztecs it went to the 3rd with the Aztecs up 20-10.  The Rebels cut the Aztecs lead to 20-17 when quarterback Kenyon Oblad found tight end Gio Fauolo Sr, for  two yards. This was set up when Ryan Agnew was picked off by cornerback Jericho Flowers.

After the Rebels defense forced a 3-out the UNLV got the ball back with about 3:44 remaining. After a huge conversion on 4 and 24 it set up UNLV in great position for a field goal. That what did happened. However, kicker;s 42 yarder hit the left goal post and was no good. The Aztecs came out victorious in this one by the score of 20-17.

The Aztecs were led on offense by quarterback Ryan Agnew. Agnew was 14-23 for 185 and one touchdown and one interception.

UNLV quarterback Kenyon Oblad played pretty well, too. He was 21-39 for 255 and two touchdowns. Next week, the Aztecs(7-1,4-1) have a bye week before welcoming Nevada on November 9th. While, next week the 2-6,0-4) UNLV Rebels head to Fort Collins to play the Colorado State Rams.
