LAS VEGAS -- Senior quarterback Caleb Herring threw five touchdown passes and ran for another Saturday night, leading UNLV to a 45-19 victory over San Diego State.

After falling behind 41 seconds into the game, when San Diego State opened up a 7-0 lead after Colin Lockett hauled in a 39 yard pass from Quinn Kaehler, the Rebels scored 31 unanswered points through the 11:36 mark of the third quarter, seized control of the game and cruised to the win.

The Rebels (7-5, 5-3 Mountain West) outgained San Diego State 402-327, while their 45 points was their second biggest output of the season. UNLV was a perfect 6-0 this season when scoring 30 or more points.

Herring's five touchdown passes were not only a career-high, but also tied a school record for most in a single game. Herring's No. 1 target on the night, Devante Davis, finished with eight receptions for 171 yards and four touchdowns. Herring also connected with Marcus Sullivan on a 32-yard TD strike.

Davis' four touchdown receptions tied him for the most in a single game in UNLV history, while his 14 touchdowns in 2013 set a new single-season record for the Rebels.

Placekicker Nolan Kohorst kicked six extra points and one field goal and became UNLV's all-time leading scorer with 245 career points.

San Diego State dropped to 7-5 overall and 6-2 in conference play.

The Rebels are one of seven Mountain West Conference schools to become bowl eligible this season.
