Nicolai Bornand made a 33-yard field goal in overtime, lifting UNLV to a 30-27 victory over Fresno State on Friday night in a game of missed opportunities for both teams.

Bornand also made a 46-yard field goal to tie it at 27 with 3:37 left in the regulation as UNLV ended a 10-game losing streak to Fresno State.

The Rebels (2-5, 1-2 Mountain West) had a chance to win on the last play in regulation, but short kicker Jonathan Leiva missed a 26-yard field goal from the left hash wide right.

In overtime, the Bulldogs (3-4, 2-1) did not score on their opening drive. Brian Burrell found Marteze Waller in stride in the right side of the end zone, but Waller dropped it on the fourth-down play from the 18-yard line.
