New Mexico RB Jhurell Pressley accepted an invite to the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

Pressley will be one of the more prolific names to play in the annual draft showcase, having scored 35 touchdowns for his career. Over the course of the 2015 campaign, the 5-foot-10, 203-pound redshirt senior rushed for 907 yards (6.2 YPC) and 11 touchdowns. That per carry average is shiny, but even shinier is the 9.5 YPC mark that he notched in 2014.

New Mexico signed HC Bob Davie to a two-year extension.

Davie was already under contract through the 2019 season prior to the extension. Make that 2021, now. He'll also receive a $50,000 bump in annual salary starting July 1. That'll bring his annual number to $422,690. This past season, the Lobos finished 7-6. This might seem relatively unspectacular, but it's their first winning season since 2007. In a statement, Vice President for Athletics Paul Krebs said, "Under the leadership of Coach Davie, our football program has transformed both on and off the field. We have a healthy future for our program, and I’m excited to have Coach Davie lead us."

New Mexico sophomore S Markel Byrd was killed in a single-car accident on Tuesday.

Driving home for the holidays with his girlfriend, the car Byrd was driving suffered a blowout. He and his girlfriend were ejected from the vehicle. Byrd died immediately while his girlfriend is currently listed in critical condition. "This is an absolute tragedy. Markel Byrd was an outstanding person and student-athlete and we will miss him," New Mexico head coach Bob Davie said in the statement. "I was with the family late Tuesday night and obviously they are devastated. Our thoughts and prayers go to them. Markel will forever be a member of our family." Byrd tied for the Lobos lead in interceptions with three this year.

New Mexico redshirt senior RB Jhurell Pressley rushed for 170 yards and three touchdowns on 17 carries in Saturday's 47-35 win over Air Force.

Fantastic work by Pressley, who averaged a mouthwatering 10 YPC in the win. He's posted yardage efforts of 100-plus in two of his last three games while scoring six touchdowns across that span. The 5-foot-10, 203-pound redshirt senior has racked up 846 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns for the 2015 campaign.

New Mexico redshirt senior RB Jhurell Pressley rushed for 132 yards and a touchdown on nine carries in Saturday's 31-24 win over Boise State.

Pressley had the chunk yardage going against the Broncos on Saturday, ripping off a 74-yard touchdown run in the first quarter and a 40-yard (non-scoring) run in the second quarter. The 5-foot-10, 203-pound redshirt senior's other seven rushes netted him just 18 yards. For the season, Pressley's rushed for 601 yards and six touchdowns. Saturday's contest marked his second game of at least 100 yards rushing. Given the lack of consistent production, he should be considered a deep DFS option at best.

New Mexico reinstated RB Crusoe Gongbay and CB SaQwan Edwards.

Lobos athletic director Paul Krebs confirmed the news. Gongbay and Edwards saw rape and kidnapping charges dismissed in June, but the DA retained the possibility that they could be refiled. The Bernalillo County District Attorney's Office recently chose to drop the case, allowing Gongbay and Edwards to return to the team. Gongbay, previously slated to be the Lobos’ starting running back as a senior, had a career-high 592 rushing yards with six touchdowns as a junior last season.

Former New Mexico WR Chase Clayton's "length and athleticism are enough to warrant investigation but he's unlikely to be drafted" in Thursday's supplemental draft, wrote CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

Clayton was academically ineligible in 2013. He earned Honorable Mention All-Mountain West honors as a sophomore in 2012 by averaging 30.4 yards per kickoff return, ranking No. 5 in the nation. "He signed with New Mexico as a defensive back but his agility and vision pushed him to the offensive side of the ball, where he saw time at fullback and running back in the Lobos' pistol option offense," Rang wrote. NFL.com also predicts Clayton (6-foot-3, 202 pounds) won't get taken.

The Albuquerque Journal has reported that New Mexico RB Crusoe Gongbay has been charged with two counts each of second-degree criminal sexual penetration and one count each of kidnapping.

Gongbay was suspended indefinitely from the team after the 20-year-old turned himself in to the police on the charges. At the moment, there is also a third suspect that may also be tied to the incident. Gongbay is currently jailed in lieu a $50,000, while the second suspect is being held on a $100,000 bond. New Mexico head coach Bob Davie released the following statement: 'We are aware of the allegations involving Crusoe Gongbay. Due to the obvious serious nature of these charges, he has been suspended indefinitely from our football team. Once this process is complete and all the details have emerged, we will handle the outcome appropriately. As this is an ongoing situation, we will not be able to comment any further at this time." Gongbay, who was slated to be the Lobos’ starting running back as a senior, had a career-high 592 rushing yards with six touchdowns as a junior last season.

New Mexico redshirt senior C Dillon Farrell accepted an invitation to play in the East-West Shrine Game.

Farrell, a team captain, was named to the Rimington Award preseason watch list, an honor given annually to the best center in college football. The senior led an offensive line that helped the Lobos rank seventh nationally in rushing yards per game (308.8). Farrell has experience at both center and tackle. While his best bet to earn an NFL roster spot is likely at center, the versatility will help his cause.

New Mexico senior TE Lucas Reed has been invited to the East-West Shrine Game.

Statistically speaking, Reed had his worst collegiate season in 2012, catching five passes for 37 yards. Most importantly, the tight end has the frame that will intrigue evaluators and possibly land him a draftable grade if he impresses during the process.

New Mexico sophomore CB Devonta Tabannah has been reinstated to the program following a suspension, but he will not play this Saturday against Texas.

Tabannah was arrested last month for a DUI, driving without a license or proof of registration, expired/not displayed license plate and for running a red light. The sophomore should return next week versus Texas Tech.

There is some chatter that former Virginia Tech recruit and New Mexico transfer Ricardo Young could be on his way to Maryland.

A lot of things add up here. Young is from D.C., former New Mexico coach Mike Locksley landed in Maryland as Randy Edsall's OC in December and Danny O'Brien has transferred out of the program. O'Brien's departure leaves C.J. Brown as the only experienced QB on the roster. After redshirting with the Hokies in 2010, Young transferred to New Mexico where he sat out last season per NCAA transfer rules.

It seems as though New Mexico tight end Lucas Reed either does nothing offensively or he has a day like he did against Wyoming, where he had 100 yards receiving and two touchdowns on seven catches.

He is either boom or bust but if you need to hit the homerun, he might be worth a play.

New Mexico tight end Lucas Reed had a breakout game against San Diego State as he hauled in six passes for 100 yards and two touchdowns.

With this performance, Reed definitely put himself on several watch lists, but take a wait-and-see approach.

New Mexico quarterback Tate Smith has decided to leave the team.  Smith has dealt with injuries and has slipped down the depth chart. 

Regardless of who is named the starting Lobo quarterback (which looks to be B.R. Holbrook), they are not worth drafting in any league.
