FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) - Abelardo Perez kicked a 37-yard field goal with 5:49 left and Ryan Lindley threw for 154 yards and a touchdown on a record-setting night as San Diego State defeated Colorado State 18-15 Saturday night.

Lindley improved to 11,494 career passing yards to pass former BYU quarterback Max Hall's 11,365 for the Mountain West Conference record and Todd Santos' 11,425 for the San Diego State mark.

Ronnie Hillman, the nation's second-leading rusher, ran for 80 yards on 24 carries for San Diego State (6-3, 3-2 Mountain West). But Colorado State's Chris Nwoke had better numbers, rushing 22 times for 232 yards and a touchdown.

Nwoke got Colorado State (3-6, 1-3) on the board first with a 63-yard touchdown run midway through the first quarter. The 63-yard scamper wasn't even Nwoke's longest run of the day, he later added a 67-yard run but was unable to finish in the end zone.

The Rams lost quarterback Pete Thomas to a strained left knee early in the second quarter. The Rams have lost five straight.

A 1-yard score by Colorado State's Garret Grayson early in the fourth quarter tied the game at 15-15 before Perez, who had missed from 22 and 44 yards earlier, was right down the middle.
