  • Kansas cruises past New Mexico...

    LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — D.J. Beshears was a defensive back last season as a Kansas freshman, but he played multiple roles on offense Saturday night.

    Beshears was a running back, wide receiver and kick returner as he scored three touchdowns, including a 96-yard kickoff return, in the first half to propel Kansas to a 42-16 victory over the New Mexico State.

    "I guess we've going to have to give him slash, slash," said Kansas quarterback Jordan Webb.

  • UNLV storms to 45-10 victory...

    LAS VEGAS (AP) — Omar Clayton hit Michael Johnson for three touchdown passes in leading UNLV to an 45-10 win over New Mexico on Saturday night.

    The two connected for scores from 10, 43, and 35 yards as coach Bobby Hauck won his first game with UNLV (1-3, 1-1 Mountain West).

    Clayton finished 14 of 20 with 194 yards passing, while Johnson had 138 yards on eight catches as the Rebels scored 45 straight points after trailing New Mexico (0-4, 0-2) by a touchdown in the first quarter.

  • Eagles run over Hilltoppers

    While the Hilltoppers offense showed flashes of where it can be when it grows up, the defense had no answer for Belen’s running attack.
    Daniel Jarmillo rumbled for 178 yards on 19 carries behind a monster line led by 338-pound Samson Chavez in just three quarters.  The Eagles other first-team running back, Steven Contreras, also found plenty of openings in the Hilltoppers porous defense.
