Aggies fall to UTEP: 41-28





The NMSU Aggie football team (1-2) struggled to get out of its own way tonight, falling to the UTEP Miners (1-2), 41-28, at the Sun Bowl in El Paso, TX. UTEP has now won 8 out of the last 11 meetings between the two schools.

Things didn't start well for the Aggies from the opening kickoff. Trailing early, which has become a common sign for this team, the Aggies saw the Miners score four times in four possessions and got off to a fast lead at 27-0 with about 10 minutes to go till halftime.

The Aggies finally settled down a bit and got on the scoreboard when Aggie QB Andrew Manley hit WR Austin Franklin for a 37-yd touchdown to put the Aggies at 27-7, heading into the locker room at half.

The Aggies got off to a decent second half as they cut into the UTEP lead on a Andrew Manley to Kemote Bateman 47-yard pass to the UTEP 1-yard line. A few players later, Aggie RB Tiger Powell scored to put the score at 27-14. The Aggies would get no closer.

UTEP answered by scoring two more touchdowns to put the game out of reach. The Aggies also scored two touchdowns, but it was all academic. Final score, 41-28.

Aggie sophomore quarterback Andrew Manley was 20 of 47 for the game on 290 yards passing with three touchdowns and one interception. That lone interception early in the game set the tone for the night.

Aggie WR Kemonte Bateman and Austin Franklin both finished with +100-yard games, 115 and 107, respectively.

The Aggie running game is still struggling. Junior RB Germi Morrison had 76 yards on 12 carries and Junior RB Tiger Powell finished with 49 yards on 12 carries.

The Aggie defense once again struggled to stop the Miner rushing game and passing game. Through three games this season, they are averaging 37.0ppg in scoring defense.

Next Saturday, the Aggies take on I-25 rival New Mexico (1-2) at Aggie Memorial Stadium. Kickoff is at 6:00pm.
