Bob Davie has New Mexico playing tough
- by Doug Samuels 1 year ago
Bob Davie has two wins in his first five games at New Mexico, which is more than they had all of last season, and is just one win shy of their win total from the previous three seasons (3).
The last week of 2011, Boise State routed New Mexico 45-0. Last weekend was a different story as Davie and the Lobos gave Boise State all that they could handle before falling 32-29.
Boise took a 25-0 lead into the half, before New Mexico put together a 29 point second half to rally back within three points before the final buzzer sounded. They had a chance to win it after getting the ball back with just over three minutes left to play, and ended up throwing an incomplete pass on 4th and 4.
Davie has got New Mexico (2-3) playing tough, and should lead them to handful more wins as they continue conference play. Their three losses have come to Texas (4-0), Texas Tech (4-0) and Boise State (3-1).
This weekend, they've got Texas State (2-2) at home and will head to Hawaii (1-3) next week. Their remaining eight games feature only two teams currently sitting above .500 (Fresno State who is 3-2 and Nevada who is 4-1).
