ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Boise State came into University Stadium Friday night with a score to settle against New Mexico. Afterall, it was the Lobos who took a victory on the blue turf in Boise last season. The 19th ranked Broncos got their revenge to the tune of a 49-21 thumping of the Lobos. Quarterback Brett Rypien carved up the Lobo defense for 391 yards and five touchdowns before exiting the game early.

The Broncos would score first with the Lobos answering right back in a Tyrone Owens 62 yard touchdown up the middle. Owens had 84 yards on 7 carries. After his touchdown it was all Broncos. They would score on their next five drives for a 42-7 advantage at the half. The Broncos added another score to start the third quarter.

The Lobos answered but the damage was already done. As a team the Lobos rushed for 382 yards but, did not get in the end zone enough.

With the loss the Lobos drop to 2-3 overall and 1-1 in the Mountain West. Air Force is up next for the Lobos. That game will be played in the Dallas Cowboys stadium next Saturday and has a 1:30pm start time.
