Freshman halfback Walter Kazee rushed for 101 yards on 22 carries and scored a touchdown Saturday as San Diego State defeated New Mexico State 34-17.
The Aztecs (2-3) scored half of their points in final 7 minutes with the help of Kazee's TD carry and a scoring pass by Ryan Lindley to Willie Watters.
Lane Yoshida also connected for a field goal, his second of the game, during the final minutes.
The Aggies (2-3) tied it at 17 early in the fourth quarter when quarterback Trevor Walls connected with wide-receiver Todd Lee.
However, the Aztecs took the ensuing kickoff and marched 78 yards on nine plays for the TD.
The Aztecs' Vincent Brown, who came into the game No. 3 in the nation in receiving yards, caught three passes for 84 yards including a 21-yard touchdown. Teammate Dey Juan Hemmings also ran in a fumble recovery.
