Texas State at New Mexico

New Mexico 35, Texas St. 14


ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Kasey Carrier ran for four touchdowns and a career-high 191 yards Saturday to lead New Mexico past Texas State 35-14.

Carrier had TD runs of 37, 1, 19 and 43 yards for the Lobos (3-3). New Mexico completed only one pass on three attempts for nine yards, but the Lobos piled up 361 yards on the ground, the fourth time this season they have gained at least 300 yards rushing.

Texas State only managed 32 yards rushing.

New Mexico's - and Carrier's - first two touchdowns came 12 seconds apart after the Bobcats (2-3) fumbled the kickoff on their opening possession.

Lobos quarterback Cole Gautsche had 79 yards on seven carries and Jhurell Pressley added 78 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries.

Texas State's Shaun Rutherford finished 16 of 21 for 186 yards with two touchdowns. Andy Erickson had eight catches for 100 yards.
