LAS VEGAS (AP) - Andy Dalton threw for 252 yards and two touchdowns, Jeremy Kerley scored running and receiving, and No. 4 TCU dominated defensively again to stay undefeated with a 48-6 victory against UNLV on Saturday night.

TCU (9-0, 5-0 Mountain West), which was also fourth in the BCS standings, heads into a huge conference showdown at No. 8 Utah (8-0, 5-0) having allowed 16 points in the last five games.

Ed Wesley ran 64 yards on 13 carries with a touchdown and Dalton finished 16 of 23 with no interceptions.

The Horned Frogs, who were the highest ranked team to ever play in Las Vegas, have won 22 straight regular-season games and nine straight on the road.

Michael Johnson caught a 10-yard touchdown pass from Omar Clayton in the second quarter for UNLV (1-7, 1-3).

Clayton finished 15 of 29 for 128 yards and two interceptions. 1/4

TCU built a 28-6 halftime lead and it could have been even worse if Matthew Tucker had not fumbled at the UNLV 1 with 5:49 left in the half.

Kerley started the scoring with a 5-yard run around the left side with 9:31 left in the first quarter, followed by Wesley's 1-yard run up the middle on the first play of the second quarter to make it 14-0.

Safety Colin Jones intercepted Clayton's pass and ran it back for 30-yard touchdown one minute later. TCU has returned five of its last seven interceptions for touchdowns, dating back to last season.

Dalton had a 1-yard dive into the end zone with a minute until halftime.

Three plays into the second half, Dalton found Josh Boyce across the middle in stride for a 54-yard touchdown pass. It was the longest play from scrimmage this season and it extended Dalton's MWC record for consecutive games with a touchdown pass to 17.

Dalton hooked up with Kerley on a 24-yard touchdown pass early in the fourth quarter.
