Aggies Unable to Pull Off Comeback, Fall to No. 24 Boise State
Sept. 29, 2012
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico scored 22 unanswered points in the second half, but it wasn't enough to take down Boise State, losing 32-29 on Saturday. Joe Southwick passed for 311 yards and three touchdowns and Timmy Smith knocked down a fourth-down pass with two minutes to go Saturday to help No. 24 Boise State escape with a victory against the Aggies.
Boise State (3-1, 1-0) led by 25 points at half time after turning three Lobos' fumbles into 18 points.
New Mexico (2-3, 0-1) turned two Broncos' second-half fumbles into touchdowns to help close the gap. The Lobos did not throw a pass in the second half until its final play, but baffled the Broncos with their triple-option offense.
