New Mexico senior QB Lamar Jordan ran for 116 yards and two scores in a 38-35 loss to UNLV on Friday.

Jordan attempted four passes, and completed zero. The Lobos had zero yards passing, but were able to run for an impressive 482 yards, with three players -- including Jordan -- going over 100 yards. It looked like he was going to end his last game in New Mexico on a high-note, as he took a keeper 41 yards to give New Mexico a 35-30 lead with just over a minute left. The Lobos defense couldn't get it done over the last possession, however. Jordan will try to get a victory in his last game next week against San Diego State.
Nov 18 - 1:11 AM

New Mexico redshirt junior RB Tyrone Owens ran for 164 yards on 15 carries with a touchdown in a 38-35 loss to UNLV on Friday.

Owens isn't going to come close to getting to his numbers last year (1,097 yards, seven touchdowns), but he looked like that type of runner on Friday. His rushing touchdown was a two-yard dive into the end zone that gave the Lobos a 28-27 lead over the Rebels in the middle of the fourth quarter. The Lobos and Owens will close their year next week against San Diego State.
Nov 18 - 1:05 AM

New Mexico senior RB Richard McQuarley (leg) has been ruled out for Friday's game against UNLV.

McQuarley (5'11/179) suffered the leg injury in Saturday's 55-14 loss to Texas A&M. Tyrone Owens and Daryl Chestnut will see more touches out of the backfield in his absence against the Rebels.
Nov 14 - 2:29 PM

New Mexico redshirt freshman QB Tevaka Tuioti is dealing with a hamstring injury, according to HC Bob Davie.

It seems that Tuioti picked up the injury in Saturday's loss to Texas A&M. Senior quarterback Lamar Jordan will start on Friday against UNLV, with Coltin Gerhart his backup.
Nov 14 - 12:26 PM

New Mexico senior QB Lamar Jordan (undisclosed) started the second half.

Jordan was forced out by injury in the first half, but after being taken to the locker room for examination, he's been cleared for the second half. Tevaka Tuioti will be waiting in the wings should Jordan come down injured later in the contest.
Nov 4 - 7:46 PM

New Mexico senior QB Lamar Jordan was taken to the locker room for examination following an undisclosed injury in Saturday's game against Utah State.

Jordan dealt with a concussion earlier this season, but it is unclear at this juncture whether his current injury concern is an aggravation of the previous head injury. Tevaka Tuioti took over for the senior after he left the game. Consider Jordan questionable to return.
Nov 4 - 7:17 PM

New Mexico redshirt junior RB Tyrone Owens rushed for 159 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries in the school's 27-24 loss to Colorado State on Friday.

Owens produced two outstanding plays. One was his 54-yard run, a tight scamper between the tackles that saw him weave between defenders and show long speed. The next was a 20-plus yard touchdown run, displaying incredible patience to avoid two tacklers at the line of scrimmage.
Oct 21 - 10:37 AM

New Mexico senior RB Richard McQuarley ran for five touchdowns and 179 yards on just 11 carries in a 56-38 victory over Air Force.

Well, that's an efficient day. McQuarley (5'11/179) and the Lobos offense ran all over the Falcons defense with little resistance, running for 363 yards. Amazingly, they're the first five touchdowns of the season for the senior tailback. Considering he ran for 18 scores last year, it's probably not the last time he finds the end zone in 2017.
Sep 30 - 11:45 PM

New Mexico senior QB Lamar Jordan (concussion) is expected to be able to play against Air Force on Saturday.

Jordan sat in Saturday's win over Tulsa due to a concussion sustained on a late hit against Boise State the prior weekend. Third-stringer Coltin Gerhart started in his place for that contest (backup Tevaka Tuioti was out with a concussion of his own). In two-plus games this season, the 6-foot, 190-pound Jordan has thrown for 328 yards with a 1/2 TD/INT ratio while rushing for 64 yards on 20 attempts.
Sep 26 - 7:58 PM

New Mexico redshirt junior QB Coltin Gerhart ran for 156 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 16-13 win over Tulsa.

Gerhart was a one-man show this afternoon against Tulsa's shoddy run defense. Through the air, he went 9-of-14 for 108 yards and an interception. Formerly New Mexico's third-string quarterback, Gerhart ascended to the QB1 post with both Lamar Jordan and Tevaka Tuioti ruled out due to concussions.
Sep 23 - 4:57 PM

New Mexico redshirt junior QB Coltin Gerhart will start Saturday's game against Tulsa.

With both Lamar Jordan and Tevaka Tuioti ruled out due to concussions, Gerhart draws the start. The younger brother of former Stanford RB Toby Gerhart, the 6-foot, 205-pound redshirt junior mostly struggled when called upon for relief duty against Boise State in Week 3 after Jordan went out injured in the first half, completing 7-of-13 passes for 67 yards, a touchdown and an interception. He showed a little more friskiness as a runner, carrying eight times for 49 yards.
Sep 20 - 9:22 PM

New Mexico redshirt freshman QB Tevaka Tuioti (concussion) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Tulsa.

The Lobos are a mess at quarterback right now, with both starter Lamar Jordan and backup Tuioti unavailable for Saturday's showdown with Tulsa due to concussion concerns. Coltin Gerhart will start this weekend with the other two young men out for the time being. There is no current timetable for Tuioti's return to action. Prior to suffering the concussion, the redshirt freshman had completed 11-of-20 passes for 160 yards and a 2/0 TD/INT ratio in two games.
Sep 20 - 9:10 PM

New Mexico senior QB Lamar Jordan (concussion) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Tulsa.

Jordan (6'0/190) took a scary late hit in the first half of Thursday's loss to Boise State, as he was driven into the turf on the play in question and looked obviously wobbly when walking off the field. Third-stringer Coltin Gerhart took over for him to finish out that loss (second-string QB Tevaka Tuioti is also dealing with a concussion). Gerhart will again start against Tulsa on Saturday. There is no current timetable for Jordan's return.
Sep 20 - 8:06 PM

New Mexico redshirt junior RB Tyrone Owens ran for 46 yards on 14 carries with a touchdown in a 28-14 loss to Boise State on Thursday.

Owens ran for 1,097 yards and seven scores with an incredible 8.0 YPC last season, but has struggled to find any running room during the current campaign, including Thursday. Outside of a 24-yard run, he managed just 22 yards on 13 carries against a stout Boise State defense. He was able to score a touchdown, however, finding the end zone when Lamar Jordan found him on an option pitch from five yards out to tie the game at 7-7 in the first half. He'll look to get back on track when the Lobos travel to Tulsa for their Week Four contest.
Sep 14 - 11:25 PM

New Mexico senior QB Lamar Jordan left Thursday's game against Boise State after a late hit.

Jordan (6'0/190) was hit in the upper-area, and was wobbly as he left the game. Coltin Gerhart replaced Jordan with just over a minute left in the first half. Freshman Tevaka Tuioti is Jordan's normal backup, but is out with a concussion.
