Las Vegas – The Rebels’ bid to become bowl eligible hit a snag Saturday night as they went down to San Jose State 34-24 at Sam Boyd Stadium.

UNLV did manage to make the game interesting after a miserable first half when they trailed the Spartans 24-3.

UNLV cut the lead to 24-17 late in the third but Thomas Tucker ran for a 37-yard touchdown with 10:49 to play to extend San Jose State’s lead to 31-17. UNLV once again cut the deficit to 7 with eight minutes remaining but the Spartans responded with a drive that lasted over five minutes and culminated in a field goal.

Senior quarterback Caleb Herring led the way for the Rebels offensively passing for 265 yards, 2 touchdowns and 2 interceptions, Herring also led the Rebels in rushing with 55 yards on 14 carries and a touchdown.

The loss drops the Rebels to 5 and 4 on the season and 3 and 2 in the Mountain West, they’ll take their quest for a bowl bid back to Sam Boyd Stadium next Saturday as they host Utah State.
