LAS CRUCES, N.M. - Devonte Lee ran for two second-quarter touchdowns and Nevada turned back New Mexico State 23-12.

New Mexico State took the lead in the second quarter on a safety, but Lee answered with a 32-yard scoring run for a 7-2 Wolf Pack lead.

Brandon Talton kicked a 28-yard field goal and Lee added a 4-yard TD run with 42 seconds left for a 17-2 halftime lead.

Freshman quarterback Gavin Frakes connected with Kordell David for a 10-yard TD with 5:19 left in the third quarter to get the Aggies within 17-9.

Talton sandwiched two fourth-quarter field goals around one by NMSU's Ethan Albertson to cap the scoring.
