-A A +A

LAS CRUCES — The New Mexico State University Aggie football team began the 2014 season with a solid win, defeating the Cal-Poly Mustangs, 28-10, in its home opener Thursday night in front of 13,772 fans inside Aggie Memorial Stadium.
The Aggies gained 315 total yards in the contest.
Freshman Larry Rose III led the way for NMSU, finishing with 150 yards on the ground on 30 carries in his Aggie debut. Rose III scored twice, once on the ground and another on a touchdown catch in the second half to seal the victory.
It was a solid start for the Aggie offense Thursday. Sophomore quarterback Tyler Rogers went 18-for-27 for 118 yards, two touchdown throws and one interception.  As good as the offense was, perhaps more dominating was the young NMSU defense, especially in the second half. 
The Aggies shutout the Mustangs in the third and fourth quarters and allowed only 27 yards after halftime. The Mustangs rolled up 236 yards rushing in the first half, but were limited to 23 in the second half.
NMSU freshman linebacker Derek Ibekwe led the defense with a total of 14 tackles and half a sack in the game.
Fellow linebacker Rodney Butler also had double-digits tackles and also had a sack.
NMSU (1-0) won just two contests in all of 2013.
