LAS VEGAS –– San Diego State football entered the fourth quarter against UNLV with an 11-point lead last November.

Long story short, that lead collapsed into a 27-24 Rebel victory.

Fast forward one year later, the Aztecs held a 10-point lead going into the fourth quarter.

UNLV junior tight end Giovanni Fauolo Sr. caught a two-yard touchdown to narrow the Rebels’ deficit to 20-17. After an SDSU three-and-out, the Rebels got the ball back with 3:44 remaining.
