LAS VEGAS (AP) — Lucas Johnson completed 18 of 24 pass attempts for 192 yards and threw three touchdowns, as No. 23 San Diego State survived a scare and defeated UNLV 28-20.

The Aztecs (10-1) led by just one point, 21-20, before Johnson found Jesse Matthews for a 7-yard strike with 3:33 left in the game.

San Diego State linebacker Seyddrick Lakalaka intercepted UNLV quarterback Justin Rogers with less than two minutes left in the game to thwart the Rebels’ last-ditch effort.
