BYU stops late SMU comeback try, wins New Mexico Bowl

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) Cornerback Jakon Robinson stopped SMU quarterback Tanner Mordecai on a 2-point conversion try with eight seconds left in the game, and BYU beat the Mustangs 24-23 Saturday night in the New Mexico Bowl.

"I'd go for it again a heartbeat," SMU coach Rhett Lashlee said of the decision. "I trust these guys and I wanted to give them a chance to win."

Mordecai, who finished with 218 passing yards and two touchdowns, tried to cut up the middle on a designed run and was dropped by Robinson, shutting down SMU's comeback attempt from a 24-10 third-quarter deficit.
