The New Mexico State Aggies life as an independent didn’t begin as planned following a 38-22 loss at UTEP. The Aggies fell behind 24-3 at the break and were never able to catch up after being outgained 518-345 with the Miners displaying plenty of balance. Quarterback Tyler Rogers connected on 17-41 for 206 yards with Jaleel Scott and Royce Caldwell combining for 125 yards on eight receptions. Rogers was effective on the ground in giving NMSU a team high 63 rushing yards on nine totes and a score while Jason Huntley added 53 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries. The New Mexico State defense got on the scoreboard as well with DeMarcus Owens with a 50 yard fumble return for six.
