NEW MEXICO VS. SAN JOSE STATE
ESPN'S TAKE
Rod Gilmore There were a couple of key things: First, New Mexico had a bad matchup with the wide receivers of San Jose State. James Jones and John Broussard were a handful for the corners of New Mexico and they burned them for three touchdowns -- big plays, most of them in the first half. Secondly, New Mexico turned the ball over way too much. The Lobos had four turnovers in the ball game and that squandered a number of scoring opportunities for them. A phenomenal game for San Jose State's Matt Castelo who had 18 tackles and forced two fumbles. He was the defensive player of the game. All in all, San Jose State's speed was just a little too much for New Mexico.
-- Rod Gilmore
