New Mexico vs. Boise State: Live Score and Highlights
Brian Losness-USA TODAY Sports

Final: Boise State 45, New Mexico 17

 

Boise State is now 8-4 overall and 6-2 in the Mountain West after thumping New Mexico Saturday night in Bronco Stadium. The Lobos drop to 3-9 overall and 1-7 in the MW.

This game was never close, and it had to be bittersweet for the 16 seniors who celebrated senior night in Boise.

No senior made a bigger splash on the blue turf than Joe Southwick. The quarterback has been out with a broken ankle that required surgery. That injury happened against Nevada in week seven, but he started tonight in the season finale.

All Southwick did was lead his team on a drive that took just :58 seconds before he hit Matt Miller for the score. In total, Joe went 2-of-2 for 65 yards and the touchdown.

The night however, belonged to a sophomore. Boise State running back Jay Ajayi was the player of the game, and he had a career night.

The Broncos now wait to find out which bowl game they will be playing in this season.
