New Mexico State has been waiting 57 years for Friday's Arizona Bowl

New Mexico State has been waiting 57 years for Friday's Arizona Bowl

The New Mexico State Aggies didn't take long to put points on the board in the Arizona Bowl.

Rogers, who was second nationally with 347 yards passing per game during the regular season, threw for 191 yards and touchdown with two interceptions.

"That game couldn't have ended any better".

The Aggies left the Border Conference in 1962 to become independent, then, in 1971, joined the first of several mid-major leagues.

Utah State senior RB LaJuan Hunt rushed for 133 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries in Friday's 26-20 overtime loss to New Mexico State in the Nova Home Loans Arizona Bowl. New Mexico State's players arrived at Thursday's news conference in sparkling white Under Armour jackets featuring their "Pistol Pete" mascot and an Arizona Bowl logo.

Utah State's 44 points were the most in the first half for the Aggies this season, besting the previous season best of 42 at Gonzaga on November 18.

The recent downturn of the program in Logan could be traced to a victory over Texas-El Paso in the 2014 New Mexico Bowl, completing a 10-win season.

Utah State was also plagued by special teams miscues during the middle two quarters. Not to be undone, New Mexico sophomore running back Jason Huntley returned his kickoff 100 yards for a touchdown on the very next play. The Aggies also finished the game with a season-high-tying 23 assists and a season-low four turnovers. New Mexico State drove down the field on the first drive but was held to a redzone field goal by Utah State.

Before that, the sides' only other trips to the end zone were through special teams.

Utah State is a 4.5-point favorite, according to Vegas Insider. He missed on a 29-yard field goal. After winning the coin toss, Utah State's offense struggled and Eberle took the field to bail his team out.

Both teams should be proud of their work this season. New Mexico State entered the game with 587 pass attempts, second most ever for a season.

Utah State men's basketball posted an 86-72 victory over San José State on Wednesday night, recording the 21st consecutive victory over the Spartans and opening its 2017-18 Mountain West slate with a win.

"It gives me confidence because she's better than me so it's a little competition we have that makes us better as a section", Andres said. With freshman quarterback Jordan Love returning next year, the future is bright for Utah State. It's a big chance for New Mexico State to show that the football team has a following and that they are capable of competing against Mountain West teams. Next year will determine if Martin's success is a fluke or the result of a strong foundation.
