Idaho beats New Mexico State 29-17

MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) Chad Chalich threw for 192 yards and a touchdown and Jerrel Brown ran for 151 yards and another score as Idaho broke a six-game slide with its first win, a 29-17 victory over New Mexico State on Saturday.

Robert Montgomery put Idaho up 7-0 early on a 4-yard run. A 49-yard touchdown pass from Chalich to Joshua McCain and a pair of field goals by Austin Rehkow gave the Vandals (1-6, 1-4 Sun Belt) a 20-10 halftime lead.

Rehkow kicked his third field goal early in the fourth to extend the lead to 23-10.

The Aggies (2-6, 1-3) then scored on a 33-yard touchdown run by Larry Rose III and New Mexico State trailed by six with 12:05 left.

But their comeback hopes were dashed when the Vandals’ Jayshawn Jordan intercepted Tyler Rose and Brown took it in from 14 yards a play later for the final score.

The win for Idaho also snaps a 13-game losing streak – the nation’s longest in the FBS – that included the final seven games of last season.
