Recap: San Diego St vs. UNLV

San Diego, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Donnel Pumphrey rushed for 167 yards and scored four touchdowns, as the San Diego State Aztecs defeated the UNLV Rebels, 34-17, in a Mountain West Conference showdown at Qualcomm Stadium.

Pumphrey did his damage on 22 carries and now has nine touchdowns this season for SDSU (2-2, 1-0 MWC). Quinn Kaehler was solid under center, completing 16- of-27 pass attempts for 209 yards.

Blake Decker was 18-of-31 for 346 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions for UNLV (1-4, 0-1), which has lost three straight. Decker also chipped in 38 yards and a touchdown rushing, while Devonte Boyd caught four passes for 86 yards and a score.

UNLV scored the game's first points less than three minute in on a 22-yard field goal by Jonathan Leiva, but SDSU wasted no time countering, as Pumphrey ripped off a 71-yard touchdown run on the first play of the ensuing drive.

The Rebels scored their first touchdown with 4:17 to play in the first on a 44-yard hookup from Decker to Boyd.

The seesaw continued early in the second quarter, as the Aztecs took a 14-10 lead on another touchdown run by Pumphrey, this time from one yard out. Pumphrey scored again, a 3-yard run, with just over three minutes to play in the half.

Pumphrey's huge night continued just prior to halftime with another 1-yard touchdown run. SDSU traveled 85 yards in seven plays over the course of just 32 seconds before scoring with 11 seconds left in the half.

After a scoreless third quarter, SDSU added to its lead early in the fourth on a 24-yard field goal by Donny Hageman.

UNLV halted the SDSU run at 24 unanswered points at the 10:47 mark of the fourth when Decker rushed in a 2-yard touchdown. Hageman chipped in a 31-yard field goal later in the frame to close out the scoring.

SDSU had nearly a seven-minute advantage in the time-of-possession battle and scored on all five trips to the red zone.
