Pierre-Louis's late interception seals win, Colorado State tops New Mexico 28-21


ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico — Nick Stevens passed for 264 yards and a touchdown, and Kevin Pierre-Louis's interception late in the fourth quarter sealed Colorado State's 28-21 win over New Mexico Saturday night.

Izzy Matthews' 1-yard TD run with 8:41 left broke a 21-all tie and capped off a 12-play, 87-yard drive for Colorado State (6-5, 4-3 Mountain West).

Lamar Jordan was intercepted on the next play from scrimmage, but the Lobos defense pushed Colorado State back 9 yards and Braxton Davis missed a 52-yard field-goal attempt.

New Mexico (6-5, 4-3) got the ball back at its 35 with 6:02 left, but Jordan could only drive the offense 10 yards in 10 plays before Pierre-Louis's game-saving pick with 1:11 left.

The loss knocked New Mexico out of contention for the conference's Mountain Division championship and gives the title to Air Force outright.

Jordan was 4 of 9 for 58 yards and three interceptions, and he rushed for 97 yards and a TD on 23 carries. Jhurell Pressley ran for 75 yards and two TDs.
