The New Mexico Lobos are making things interesting against the Boise State Broncos, as they have scored 14 straight points in the third quarter. Heading into the final frame, it's very much a game, with Boise State holding a 25-14 advantage. The Lobos used their rushing attack to move the ball against a mediocre Broncos rush defense.
New Mexico got a break on the opening kickoff in the third quarter as Boise State return man Dallas Burroughs fumbled the ball, giving New Mexico the ball at the Broncos 26-yard line. The Lobos drove inside the 5-yard line and on a 3rd-and-1, Ty Kirk fumbled the ball, but recovered it himself, and it was good enough to get the first down. Jhurell Pressley drove it in for a Lobos touchdown.
Boise State tried to put the game away as they went for it on 4th-and-1 at the Lobos 4-yard line, but failed to convert. The alternative statement is that the Broncos do not trust their kicker.
New Mexico then gashed the Boise State defense, driving the ball 96 yards on just seven carries to make it an 11-point game. Backup quarterback Cole Gautsche greatly aided the drive by having a 40-yard run on that drive to get New Mexico down the field. Kasey Carrier scored from five yards out to make it 25-14.
