New Mexico St powers past Idaho 24-16
NEW MEXICO ST 24, IDAHO 16
LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) -- Andrew McDonald threw for two TD's as
New Mexico State avoided the FBS-Independent cellar by beating
Idaho 24-16 on Saturday.
Idaho and New Mexico State-both trying to avoid the cellar
position of FBS Independent schools-held nothing back in the
first half trading passing TDs and field goals and Idaho (1-11)
led 13-10 going in to the break.
McDonald tossed a 7-yard TD to Austin Franklin and Adam Shapiro
ran for another Aggie TD in the fourth quarter giving New Mexico
State (2-10) an advantage Idaho could not overcome. In fact, the
Vandals scored only three points in the second half. Idaho
launched a final drive with two minutes left that ended with
three incomplete passes from inside the New Mexico red zone.
Idaho outgained the Aggies 459 to 371 yards, but New Mexico
State had only one penalty while Idaho gathered eight for 95
