ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - James Aho kicked a 38-yard field goal as time expired to lift New Mexico to a 34-31 victory over Wyoming on Saturday.

UNM's Stump Godfrey, in his first start for the Lobos (1-8, 1-4 Mountain West), completed 16 of 20 passes for 211 yards with two touchdowns throws to Lucas Reed, who finished with seven catches for 100 yards.

UNM had lost 23 of its last 24 games, but it forced four turnovers, three coming deep in its own end and one deep in the Cowboys' end.

The Cowboys (2-8, 0-6) held a 21-7 lead late in the second quarter after Alvester Alexander, who finished with 151 yards and three touchdowns, took it 94 yards for a score.

The Lobos, however, rallied behind Reed's 4-yard, one-handed touchdown reception, then an interception from Bubba Forrest at the UNM two.
