The Lobos briefly led the game with a field goal after holding Utah State to a punt on the opening drive. The Aggies then reeled off 49 straight points to put the game away before halftime. By the time both teams hit their respective locker room for the break, the score was 52-5.
At the conclusion of the game, the Aggies had 701 yards from a scrimmage, a new school record.
Love Continues Strong Play
Quarterback Jordan Love had a short and extremely effective day, throwing for 448 yards and four touchdowns all in the first half. He spread the ball around to plenty of his targets, with Ron’quavion Tarver and Justen Hervey both finishing with over 100 yards receiving.
“We’re super excited, the whole team is,” said Love postgame. “We needed to go out there and put up points like that. The defense totally set the team up (for the win). It’s fun to be out there, especially when other people get to play that usually don’t play. It’s fun just being out there.”
Aggies Stingy On Defense
The Utah State defense also came to play, forcing New Mexico into five turnovers, including four interceptions. Shaquez Bond took his interception the length the field on a 100-yard pick six.
