LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Since head coach Bob Davie and offensive coordinator Bob DeBesse came to New Mexico in 2012, there has been a reality for defensive coordinators in the Mountain West's Mountain Division, whether they like it or not:
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — LaJuan Hunt ran for 117 yards and two touchdowns and the Utah State defense forced four turnovers Saturday to beat New Mexico 24-10.
In a sloppy game on both sides, the Aggies (5-5, 3-3 Mountain West) did just enough to thwart a Lobos (3-6, 1-5) squad that has been impotent offensively. New Mexico didn't score a touchdown until 3:20 in the fourth quarter, giving it a streak of almost nine quarters without a TD.
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Richard McQuarley's five rushing touchdowns tied a New Mexico school record and he finished with 179 yards to help the Lobos overcome a sluggish first half to come back for a 56-38 victory Saturday over Air Force.
Four of McQuarley's scores came in the second half, including bursts up the middle of 63 and 65 yards on consecutive possessions in the fourth quarter.
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Daryl Chestnut scored two touchdowns and quarterback Lamar Jordan threw for a career-high 213 yards Saturday to help New Mexico roll over Abilene 38-14 in the season opener for both teams.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico is looking to keep pushing forward coming off a 9-4 season and consecutive bowl appearances, including the program's first postseason win since 2007.
The recent success, including the Lobos' victory over UTSA in the New Mexico Bowl last December, has created a new mindset within the program and brought attention from outside.
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Coach Bob Davie waited a long time for this moment. It had been quite a while for his New Mexico Lobos, too.
Davie earned his first career bowl victory when the Lobos, boosted by a pair of short touchdown runs from Richard McQuarley, beat Texas-San Antonio 23-20 Saturday in the New Mexico Bowl.
Davie had been 0-4 in bowls — three when he coached at Notre Dame, then last year with the Lobos in this event.
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — The pro-style offense of UTSA will try to out-duel the triple-option threat of New Mexico in the New Mexico Bowl on Saturday.
It's the Roadrunners' first bowl appearance in their brief six-year history. The Lobos have only won two bowl games in the last 55 years.
Both coaches said a bowl win will give their programs a needed push in branding and recruiting. "How we play will define us," UTSA head coach Frank Wilson said. "We came here to win."

Brian Hill ran for 126 yards and three touchdowns for Wyoming (8-4, 6-2 Mountain West).
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — The halftime fireworks in the form of a lightning storm rocked the press box and momentarily extinguished the field lights late Saturday night, a prelude to New Mexico quarterback Austin Apodaca accounting for two second-half touchdowns to help the Lobos beat Nevada 35-26.
Apodaca hit Emmanuel Harris for a 44-yard touchdown in the third quarter and followed that up with a 4-yard run in the fourth quarter to seal the game.
