Lobos fall short in opener vs. Miners

-A A +A
By Associated Press

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Aaron Jones ran for a career-best 237 yards and three touchdowns to lead UTEP to a 31-24 victory over the University of New Mexico in Saturday’s season opener for both teams.
Jones scored his final touchdown with 2:18 remaining to break a 24-all tie after Lobos’ punt returner Dameon Gamblin muffed a punt at the 6-yard line.
The Miners built a 24-7 halftime lead behind two of Jones’ scores, including a 73-yarder.
“It was fun,” said Jones, who was briefly recruited by New Mexico. “When you’re clicking on high cylinders, everything is fun. When you get the win, it’s fun.”
And it’s especially fun to foil the Lobos, he said.
“They called me and told me my senior year that they were going to do an in-home visit and they never showed up,” Jones said. “They called and told me when they were coming, my mom cooked and they never showed up. So I have to take it to them.”
Although the Miners used a revamped offensive line, they were able to pile up the yardage in the first half when they compiled 227 rushing yards.
