The Rams had a great first half which was similar to what they did against their win against UNLV. Pete Thomas had a shade over 200 yards and one touchdown in the first before ending the day with only 256 yards and a score. The running game for the Rams was alive as Leonard Mason ran for 124 yards three scores on an 8.3 yard average per carry. The entire Ram offense ran for 328 total yards, and abused the Lobo defensive line for 6.6 yards per carry.
This game was a revenge game for the Rams since last year New Mexico earned their only win against the Rams in 2010. The Lobo went through two quarterbacks with B.R. Holbrook and then a newbie freshman Stump Godfrey. Neither did anything special as both combined for only 141 yards. The only bright spot the running ability of quarterback Stump Godfrey who ran for 72 yards, but the actually leader for a running back was James Wright who had only 27 yards.
One surprising note is that if the Rams win out they can become bowl eligible. Those opponents are at San Diego State, against BYU, and at Wyoming.
