The UTEP Miners drove 96 yards in 3:00 late in the 4th quarter with the game tied at 13, then Dakota Warren kicked the game-winner, an 18-yard field goal to win the game, 16-13. In what was a very sloppy game from UTEP's standpoint, the Miners improve to 3-1, 1-1 in Conference USA. Trevor Vittatoe threw for just 171 yards on 16-33 passing, while Donald Buckram saw his first action of the season, rushing 13 times for 59 yards. Marlon McClure was the star of the game, especially on special teams, when he piled up nearly 200 yards including speical teams. McClure had several kick returns for 139 yards. UTEP now heads to Albuquerque to take on New Mexico next Saturday.
