EL PASO, Texas -- Trevor Vittatoe threw for 263 yards and three touchdowns to lead Texas-El Paso to a 58-13 win over Central Florida on Saturday night, halting a streak of nine consecutive losses.

Jose Martinez kicked a 64-yard field goal for the Miners (1-3, 1-0 Conference USA).

Cornelius Brown, who had two interceptions and blocked a punt, led the UTEP defense as it forced UCF (1-3, 0-1) into six turnovers, including two fumbles recovered for touchdowns.

Vittatoe's second-quarter scoring pass to Jamar Hunt gave UTEP a 17-point lead, and Martinez' 64-yarder gave the Miners a 27-7 lead at halftime.

Rob Calabrese, making his first start for UCF, threw for 167 yards and a touchdown.
