UNLV rallies to beat Central Michigan 31-21

Associated Press

LAS VEGAS -- Caleb Herring connected three times with Devante Davis as UNLV rallied from a 21-point deficit -- tying the biggest comeback in school history -- to defeat Central Michigan 31-21 Saturday night.

Herring's second touchdown pass to Davis, a 42-yard play, lifted the Rebels (1-2) into a tie at 21 with 2:58 left in the third.

Nolan Kohorst's 34-yard field goal early in the fourth quarter gave UNLV the lead, and Herring's 12-yard pass to Davis extended the advantage to the final 10-point margin with 6:40 remaining.

Tim Cornett, who had the other UNLV score, rushed for 94 yards to move up to third on the Rebels' career rushing list.

Davis finished with 140 yards on seven catches. Herring was 24 of 28 for 266 yards.

Cooper Rush, making his first start for the Chippewas (1-2), threw for one touchdown while Saylor Lavallii ran for two scores. Rush was intercepted twice.
