It was supposed to be easy, but it was far from that.

The No. 22-ranked BYU Cougars escaped University Stadium with an 24-19 victory over the winless New Mexico Lobos on Saturday afternoon, but only after struggling most of the day to put away the feisty but still frustrated home team.

New Mexico pulled within 17-13 in the third quarter, but the Cougars scored right before the end of the quarter take a 24-13.

The Lobos scored with 4:07 left to cut the lead to five, 24-19, but failed on their two-point try.

New Mexico had one field goal blocked and two other attempts hit the uprights and bounce away. A PAT attempt also hit an upright and was no good.

BYU quarterback Max Hall threw for more than 300 yards, but was intercepted in the first half.
