  • Aztec nips Goddard in Class 4A title game
    This was the year of the Tigers. After finishing second four times since 2003, the Aztec Tigers picked up the Class 4A football title Saturday. The Tigers squeaked past the Goddard Rockets 28-27. The win was the first ever state football title for Aztec, which has been an elite state program for most of the past decade. Aztec lost a shootout to Artesia in the 4A title game a year ago, 45-34. Also Saturday, the Lovington Wildcats came back from a 10-0 deficit against the St. Michael’s Horsemen to win 14-10 in the Class 3A state title game. That game was played at Ivan Head Stadium in Santa Fe.
  • Moore, Broncos rout Lobos in finale, 45-0
    BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Kellen Moore threw three touchdowns in the final home game of his brilliant career and Doug Martin ran for two more as No. 9 Boise State rolled over New Mexico 45-0 Saturday. Moore, the winningest starting quarterback in college football history, was nearly flawless and the Broncos’ defense had no problem bottling up the punchless Lobos. The victory gives the Broncos (11-1, 6-1) their second straight season with a single loss and looks to clear the way for another trip to the MAACO Bowl in Las Vegas, where they dismantled No. 20 Utah a year ago 26-3. Boise State’s only loss came Nov. 12 against TCU. But Saturday was clearly a landmark day for Moore.
  • UNM drops Idaho St.
    ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — New Mexico used a balanced scoring attack and a dominating rebounding performance Wednesday night to defeat Idaho State 65-41. A.J. Hardeman and Demetrius Walker scored nine points each for the Lobos (5-2) and Drew Gordon equaled a season-high with 13 rebounds and added eight points. Melvin Morgan scored 23 for Idaho State (1-5), but no other Bengal had more than five points. The Lobos outrebounded the Bengals 51-28, including a 22-9 on the offensive glass which led to a 26-8 advantage in second-chance points. That inside dominance also helped New Mexico outscore Idaho State 30-12 on points in the paint. Although the Lobos went just 12 for 24 from the free-throw line, the Bengals were just 2 for 4.
