Stevens' 2 TDs lead Colorado State past New Mexico 27-24

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) Nick Stevens threw for two touchdowns in Colorado State's 21-point second quarter and the Rams defense forced a fourth-quarter turnover in a 27-24 victory over New Mexico on Friday night.

Colorado State linebacker Patrick Elsenbast forced a fumble by New Mexico running back Richard McQuarley and defensive lineman Jakob Buys made the recovery. The Rams went on a five-minute drive, capped by Wyatt Bryan's 52-yard field goal with 5:05 left in the fourth quarter.

Aaron Molina's 12-yard touchdown catch with 24 seconds remaining pulled New Mexico within three points and the Lobos recovered the onside kick. Evan Colorito, on his birthday, ended it with a sack of Tevaka Tuioti on fourth-and-4 from near midfield.

Stevens threw for 231 yards and Izzy Matthews ran for 116 yards and one touchdown for Colorado State (6-2, 4-0 Mountain West).

New Mexico (3-4, 1-3) gained 318 yards on the ground, including 159 yards and a score from Tyrone Evans.

THE TAKEAWAY

New Mexico's loss eliminates the Lobos from contention in the MWC's Mountain Division.

The win for Colorado State, the eighth straight in the series, gave it a comfortable two-win advantage over Boise State and Wyoming.

STAT OF THE DAY

New Mexico's second-quarter sack of Stevens was just the third of the year.

UP NEXT

Colorado State hosts Air Force next Saturday. The teams have split the last four meetings, but the Falcons had won the previous seven straight.

New Mexico plays at Wyoming next Saturday. The Lobos have won the three meetings in the series.
