  • Wyoming looking for second NM Bowl title
    LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming completed the majority of its game preparations before traveling to Albuquerque on Wednesday for the New Mexico Bowl, where the Cowboys will face Temple, coach Dave Christensen said. “We’re focused in and ready to go,” Christensen said, adding that he was pleased with the four practices held in Laramie since last week. The New Mexico Bowl is noon Saturday at University Stadium. It’s Wyoming’s second New Mexico Bowl appearance in three years. The Cowboys beat Fresno State 35-28 in double OT  in 2009. Both teams enter with 8-4 records, and Wyoming is looking for its first nine-win season since 1996.

  • Lobos pick up big win over USC
    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Steve Alford summed up his team’s performance in one simple word. Ugly. Despite the lack of style points, the result was all he cared about. Tony Snell hit two free throws with 1:27 left to put New Mexico ahead, and the Lobos held on to beat Southern California 44-41 on Saturday. The Lobos went without a field goal for the final 14:16, but made 11 free throws in that span to fend off the Trojans. “It was ugly,” Alford said. “We got careless. We got bored, really. But we found a way to win. And that’s all that really matters.”
