Following practice on Wednesday, the team got its first opportunity to interact with its opponent as players from both Utah State and New Mexico State visited Old Tucson, where they watched some professional bull riding, had dinner, and participated in a few competitive events, including a dance-off.

New Mexico State secured a 26-20 overtime win over Utah State in the Arizona Bowl on Friday to capture the program's first bowl win since 1960.

Interestingly enough, the last time New Mexico State appeared in the postseason it was against Utah State. They're coming off a 35-38 loss to Air Force in their last game of the season on November 25 while New Mexico State enters the Arizona Bowl riding a two-game winning streak after key wins against Southern Alabama on December 2 and against Idaho on November 25.

New Mexico State and Utah State didn't score an offensive touchdown in the first half, sending the Nova Home Loans Arizona Bowl into halftime tied 13-13.

40 killed in ISIL-claimed attack in Kabul
Ten people were also killed in a suicide bomb attack near the compound of Afghanistan's intelligence agency in Kabul on Monday. A local Shiite leader said one of the bombers was sitting unnoticed among the participants when he detonated his device.

Now, New Mexico State is the story of college football. The key play in that drive was a 40-yard run from Larry Rose III. Both teams came into the matchup with 6-6 records and it certainly showed in the way both teams played. The opponent: Utah State. According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, Utah State is a 4.5-point favorite to beat New Mexico State, which opened as a 3-point underdog. Still tied 13-13. Tyler Rogers still only has 98 yards passing. Utah State returns the ball to the NMSU 42.

But even after going 12 plays in 3:45 and tacking on a field goal, it was Utah State's turn to answer. He missed on a 29-yard field goal.

And, then there was that field goal kicking game.

"It gives me confidence because she's better than me so it's a little competition we have that makes us better as a section", Andres said. Dax Raymond also added 36 catches for 414 yards for Utah State this season.

Utah State men's basketball posted an 86-72 victory over San José State on Wednesday night, recording the 21st consecutive victory over the Spartans and opening its 2017-18 Mountain West slate with a win.

Before that, the sides' only other trips to the end zone were through special teams. NMSU will probably be a little nervous but, since I'm biased, I think they'll pull out the W and keep New Mexico State ideal in bowl games.

New Mexico State is 6-0-1 against the spread in its last seven non-conference games, is 4-0 against the number in its last four games against MWC foes and is 9-1 at the betting window in its last 10 games when playing on grass.

The teams combined for 20 punts. After winning the coin toss, Utah State's offense struggled and Eberle took the field to bail his team out. However, New Mexico State's leading passer, rusher, and receiver are all seniors.
