In charge nearly the entire way, Duke Williams and Nevada let the New Mexico Bowl spin out of control at the end.

Matt Scott threw two short touchdown passes in the final 46 seconds and college football's postseason started with a wild one when Arizona recovered a late onside kick and rallied past the Wolf Pack 49-48 Saturday.

Nevada led 21-0 in the first quarter and was ahead 45-28 entering the fourth period. The Wolf Pack (7-6) had a chance to seal the win, but a hard-spinning kick bounced off Williams' chest and was covered by Arizona's Marquis Flowers.

Scott then tossed a 2-yard TD pass to Tyler Slavin with 19 seconds left.
