By The Associated Press LAS CRUCES, N.M. – Redshirt freshman Colin Kaepernick threw a 31-yard touchdown strike to Mike McCoy with a minute remaining, lifting Nevada to a stirring 40-38 victory over New Mexico State on Friday night. The Wolf Pack (5-4, 3-2 WAC) won their third straight and held on after Brett Jaekle missed the extra kick after McCoy’s touchdown. The Aggies (4-6, 1-4) drove to Nevada’s 27 on their final possession, but Paul Young’s 44-yard field-goal attempt sailed low and wide left.
