New Mexico football not resting on its laurels over bye week

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – New Mexico's strong offensive line helped bolster the running game in last week's victory at New Mexico State.


The Lobos finished just shy of 200 rushing yards in their first win over the Aggies since 2015. The O-line paved the way for the running backs to reach the endzone five times.

Despite a bye week this week, UNM is staying busy as they prepare for Liberty. Senior captain Aaron Jenkins says he wants the offensive line to keep the momentum going through their break.

"I just feel like the offensive line, we came together as a unit and said, 'The game was on us,' and it was. We rushed for almost 200 yards," Jenkins said. "We finally got T.O. (Tyrone Owens) going, he had 100 yards. Amari Davis had four touchdowns. I mean, it's a testament to how hard we came out here and worked throughout the entire week."

UNM kicks off against Liberty at 4 p.m. Sept. 29 at Dreamstyle Stadium.
