Jack Browning kicked a 30-yard field goal about 5 minutes later and made a 27-yarder midway through the second quarter that gave San Diego State (3-3, 1-1 Mountain West) a 13-0 lead.

Shane Illingsworth threw a 20-yard touchdown pass to Spencer Curtis to get Nevada (2-5, 0-3) on the board with 48 seconds left in the first half.

Browning added a 23-yard field goal in the fourth quarter and Mayden’s TD scramble capped the scoring with 5:29 to play.

Illingsworth was 21-of-33 passing for 181 yards with an interception.
