New Mexico takes 7-3 lead over UTSA

Mitch Sherman ESPN Staff Writer 

New Mexico and UTSA combined for a total of one pass completion (one six attempts, all by UTSA) in the first quarter of the Gildan New Mexico Bowl -- in part because of the gusty wind and also because the Lobos run a triple-option attack directed by coach Bob Davie. New Mexico running back Richard McQuarley scored his 17th touchdown of the season on the second-to-final play of the opening quarter to put UNM on top 7-3. Here's to a bowl season full of three-hour games.

Mitch Sherman ESPN Staff Writer 

Bowl season is underway -- the first of 41 games -- with kickoff of the Gildan New Mexico Bowl. It marks the first bowl game for 6-6 UTSA, in its third year of official FBS play. New Mexico, 8-4, has played in this game in Albuquerque in each of its past four postseason appearances.
