EL PASO (AP) - Ja’Gared Davis stepped in front of a Nick Lamaison pass and returned it 30 yards for a touchdown in the second quarter to help lead SMU to a 17-0 victory Saturday over UTEP.

Davis’ touchdown came with 1:52 remaining in the first half. It was the last score of the night for SMU (2-3, 1-0 Conference USA) and was one of three forced turnovers by the Mustangs defense.

Zach Line barely missed his chance at a 17th career 100-yard rushing game as a Mustang, but was still a workhorse for SMU with 84 yards on 25 carries.

Garrett Gilbert completed 22 of 44 passes for 234 yards and a touchdown, finding Darius Johnson on a 40-yard strike at the 9:42 mark in the second quarter. Johnson had five catches for 82 yards including the score.

Jordan Leslie had seven catches for 80 yards in the loss for UTEP (1-5, 0-2).
