LARAMIE, Wyo. -- Brett Smith ran for two touchdowns, both in the fourth quarter, and passed for another, leading Wyoming past New Mexico 38-31 on Saturday.
Smith rushed for 138 yards, scoring on runs of 3 and 48 yards, and passed for another 247.
Shaun Wick rushed for 116 yards and two TDs for Wyoming (4-2, 2-0).
New Mexico, which entered the game averaging 367.8 rushing yards a game -- tops among major colleges -- finished with 257.
Wyoming scored on three of its first four possessions for a 21-0 lead, but the Lobos fought back, tying the game 24-24 early in the fourth quarter.
Gautsche led the comeback with a 49-yard TD run and a 24-yard TD pass to Carrier.
But Smith capped off an 11-play, 75-yard drive with a 3-yard TD run to put Wyoming ahead again 31-24 with 10:34 left.
On New Mexico's ensuing possession, Jesse Sampson intercepted a pass by Gautsche, setting up Wyoming's offense at the Lobos 48-yard line.
