ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) -Gartrell Johnson rushed for a career-high 285 yards and scored two touchdowns as Colorado State rallied for a 40-35 victory over Fresno State on Saturday in the New Mexico Bowl.
Johnson sealed Colorado State's first bowl victory since 2001 on a 77-yard touchdown with 1:46 remaining, igniting a celebration by fans who made the 7-hour drive from Fort Collins, Colo.
Johnson added 90 yards receiving for 375 total yards.
The Rams (7-6) took their first lead at 33-28 when Billy Farris threw a 69-yard TD to Rashaun Greer with seven minutes left. Fresno State cornerback Sharrod Davis took a big chance but whiffed on his attempt to bat the ball. Greer made the catch at the 30 and went untouched into the end zone.
The loss capped a rough season for the injury-depleted Bulldogs (7-6), who talked in fall workouts about a possible Bowl Championship Series run. They led 28-20 early in the fourth quarter.
EagleBank Bowl
Wake Forest 29, Navy 19
WASHINGTON (AP) - Riley Skinner found a perfect way to obliterate the miserable memory of his painful performance against Navy earlier this season.
1-for-11 and threw the go-ahead touchdown pass to Ben Wooster with 7:52 left, leading Wake Forest to a comeback victory in the inaugural EagleBank Bowl to open the bowl season.
The previous school record for accuracy was a 12-for-14 effort by Mike McGlamry in 1975. Skinner added a completion on a conversion attempt.
He finished with 166 yards passing and was named the game's Most Valuable Player.
It was a rematch of a September game played at Wake Forest (8-5), when Navy (8-5) took advantage of five turnovers by Skinner - four interceptions and a fumble - to pull off a 24-17 upset.
