UNLV 44, Idaho 16

MOSCOW, Idaho - The UNLV (1-1) football team won its first road game against a non-conference opponent in nine years while earning its first victory of the season in sprinting past Idaho (1-1) 44-16 Saturday inside the Kibbie Dome.

Junior tailback Lexington Thomas, who started in place of injured Charles Williams, was electric while rushing for a career-high 190 yards and three touchdowns on just 17 carries. UNLV's defense bounced back in a big way from last week/s loss, holding the Vandals to just three scores in their home building. Linebacker Bailey Laolagi led the unit with 13 total tackles while Gabe McCoy added 10 takedowns.

UNLV led 10-3 after a hard-fought first half but took the opening kickoff right down field for a critical touchdown thanks to a 60-yard spurt by Lexington Thomas. That keyed a 17-point outburst by the visitors in the first seven minutes after the break.
