Late field goal gives UTEP 24-21 win over Rice

Mack Leftwich threw two touchdown passes to Jaquan White, and Jay Mattox kicked a 24-yard field goal with 48 seconds left to give UTEP a 24-21 victory over Rice on Friday night.

The Miners (4-5, 2-3 Conference USA) marched 73 yards in 16 plays, chewing up 7:25, for the winning field goal. Leftwich twice connected with Hayden Pinke, for gains of 8 and 11 yards, to keep the drive alive.

The Miners knocked down a desperation pass in the end zone on the final play.

Rice (4-5, 2-3) scored twice in the second quarter, a 3-yard run by Luke Turner and a 36-yard pass from Driphus Jackson to Zach Wright, but Leftwich countered with 58- and 2-yard TD hookups with White.

Jeremiah Laufasa's 2-yard run put the Miners on top in the third quarter before Jackson hit Luke Turner for a 23-yard score to tie it again.
