Chavez set a Lobo record with a .909 completion percentage, going 10-for-11 for 112 yards and a touchdown. The .909 was the second-best completion percentage ever in a Mountain West game. Chavez also had 49 yards on the ground to lead the Lobos in rushing. Chavez helped the Lobos stop a five-game losing skid while filling in for the injured Terry Wilson. Wilson is still recovering from a dislocated elbow.

The Lobos are on an open week and will not play again until Nov. 6, when they host UNLV.
