How great is that?
Interestingly enough, the last time New Mexico State earned a bowl victory, it was a one-score win over Utah State.
New Mexico State relied heavily on the legs of Larry Rose III, who tallied 132 yards and the game-winning score on the ground. The senior added six catches for 48 yards.
Congratulations to the New Mexico State football program on the great achievement. They finish 2017 with a winning record of 7-6.
