BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) — Jaquez Johnson threw a 15-yard touchdown pass to Nate Terry with 20 seconds left, lifting Florida Atlantic past UTSA 41-37 in the Conference USA opener for both teams on Saturday night.

Trailing 37-27, the Owls (2-3, 1-0) stormed back as Johnson connected with Lucky Whitehead for a 21-yard touchdown with 4:10 remaining.

FAU forced a punt, and Johnson engineered a 9-play, 93-yard drive capped by his strike to Terry.

UTSA (1-3, 0-1) wasn't finished as Kam Jones returned the ensuing kickoff to the FAU 13 with 7 seconds left, but Tucker Carter's pass was broken up by Cre'von LeBlanc as time expired.

Johnson threw for 295 yards and three touchdowns and ran for a 24-yard score in the second quarter.

Carter had 272 yards passing with a score and ran for two touchdowns, but also threw two second-quarter interceptions, one that was returned 76 yards for a touchdown by LeBlanc.
