ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- Demarcus Rogers scored a 2-yard touchdown with 1:15 left Saturday as New Mexico defeated UNLV 21-14 for its first victory of the season.

Rogers' run capped a 34-yard drive set up by Jaymar Latchison's fumble recovery with 1:58 remaining.

New Mexico (1-9, 1-4 Mountain West) opened the game with an 80-yard touchdown catch-and-run from wide receiver Deon Long, then Rogers added a 1-yard touchdown midway through the first quarter as the Lobos topped their first-quarter scoring output for the entire season.

Crusoe Gongbay had a career-high 93 yards on 13 carries for New Mexico, while quarterback B.R. Holbrook was 15 of 23 for 274 yards.

UNLV's Dion Bradford rushed for a career-high 152 yards on 20 carries, but the Rebels (2-7, 1-3) could only manage 61 yards through the air.
