SAN DIEGO -- Adam Muema rushed for a season-high 233 yards and three touchdowns as San Diego State held on for a 35-30 victory over New Mexico Saturday night.

San Diego State (4-4, 3-1 Mountain West) never trailed as Quinn Kaehler found Ezell Ruffin for a 75-yard score on the first play from scrimmage, but New Mexico (2-6, 0-4) was never far behind.

Kaehler hooked up again with Ruffin for a 24-yard score in the second quarter. Kaehler threw for 201 yards on 16-of-21 passing while Ruffin finished with 165 yards on 7 catches.

The Lobos kept the game close as Crusoe Gongbay and Teriyon Gipson each added second half touchdowns.

Trailing 35-23 with 1:50 to play, backup quarterback Clayton Mitchem went 4 of 4 to lead to the Lobos 71 yards to cut the lead to 35-30.

San Diego State recovered the ensuing onside kick before running out the clock.
