New Mexico defense thwarts Wyoming in 14-3 win | national
LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) – Isaiah Chavez completed 10 of 11 passes for 112 yards and a touchdown and New Mexico beat Wyoming 14-3 on Saturday.
Chavez took advantage of a first turn from Wyoming, treading the Lobos by 77 yards, covering the last 43 with a score with Trace Bruckler.
After throwing an interception on their first possession, the Cowboys (4-3, 2-3 Mountain West Conference) entered the board with a 27-yard field goal from John Hoyland at 4:30 of the second quarter. That practice was good for 62 of their 255-yard tally.
New Mexico (3-5, 1-3) quickly recovered that with a 75-yard run, capped by a 2-yard run from Aaron Dumas just 29 seconds before halftime.
The Lobos had 152 of their 259 yards on their two scoring records. They had only 83 yards in the second half.
Wyoming saw a turnaround and was sacked twice in the fourth quarter as the New Mexico defense took the win.
