The New Mexico Lobo football team hammered the New Mexico State Aggies 66-17 on Saturday at University Stadium.

New Mexico (2-3) snapped its two-game losing streak after putting on its best offensive performance of the season.

The Lobos only had eight pass attempts the entire game, but the running game dominated the New Mexico State defense.

Running back Kasey Carrier and quarterback Cole Gautshe both ran for over 100 yards for the second straight week.

Carrier finished with 14 carries for 126 yards and three touchdowns.

Gautsche had 12 carries for 127 yards and a touchdown.

The Lobos finished with 541 total rushing yards and 7 touchdowns on the ground.

Gautshe threw one touchdown pass to receiver Carlos Wiggins.

New Mexico State (0-6) is still searching for its first win under new head coach Doug Martin.

The Lobos will travel to Wyoming next Saturday.
