New Mexico and San Diego State win their bowl games.

NCAA Football: Las Vegas Bowl-Houston vs San Diego State Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Jeremy and Matt are back to recap the first two bowl games which saw the Mountain West begin 2-0 with San Diego State using a strong second half to top Houston, and New Mexico topping first-time bowl participant UTSA.

We dive into how the Aztecs broke through after struggling for nearly most of the first half before they finally broke through the Houston defense. This game also saw Donnel Pumphrey become the NCAA's all-time leading rusher by surpassing former Wisconsin running back Ron Dayne.

The Lobos won their first bowl game since 2007 and their fourth bowl game ever which was won in 1946.
