LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) -- Chase Holbrook, returning from a two-game absence, threw for 404 yards and three touchdowns while Tony Glynn ran for two scores, leading New Mexico State to a 45-31 win over Idaho on Saturday night.
The Aggies (4-4, 1-2 Western Athletic Conference) compiled 492 total yards and didn't punt until one minute remained in the third period, breaking a three-game losing streak to Idaho (1-7, 0-4).
New Mexico State even had a little razzle-dazzle. Davon House made an interception in the end zone and returned it 100 yards for a TD.
Holbrook put the Aggies ahead for good at 17-14 with a 19-yard TD pass to Kenneth Buckley early in the second quarter. He also threw a 75-yard catch-and-run TD to Derek Dubois and a 14-yard scoring pass to Buckley.
Holbrook missed the past two games, both losses, with bruised ribs sustained in a 20-17 win over Arkansas-Pine Bluff on Sept. 29.
New Mexico State faces more injury issues, though, because Chris Williams didn't return after a second-quarter hit. The Aggies' top receiver, averaging 106.5 yards per game, has a stress fracture in his right collarbone.
Holbrook completed 36-of-49 attempts with no interceptions.
Glynn had an 8-yard scoring run early in the second quarter, then broke free on a 37-yard TD run just before halftime as the Aggies built a 38-21 lead. By halftime, they had already run 46 plays for a whopping 402 yards.
Idaho's Deonte Jackson had 143 yards rushing on 26 carries with one TD.
