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.

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.

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.

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.

New Mexico commissioned an outside investigation into allegations of player mistreatment by HC Bob Davie and questions about the integrity of the team’s drug-testing program.

"I can confirm there is an investigation underway in Athletics," said UNM spokesperson Cinnamon Blair, who declined to comment further. UNM Fishbowl previously reported that Davie wasn't liked by players and was described in exit interviews as aloof and having "no personal relationship with players." We'll have more on this story as it develops.

New Mexico AD Paul Krebs will retire on June 30.

Krebs has been under heavy fire for spending public money on a golf trip with private donors and athletic department officials in 2015. The university is currently under special audit as the state attempts to unravel how money is being spent in the athletic department. In a statement, acting school president Chaouki Abdallah said, "His tenure will go down as the most productive and successful in school history. Paul has tried to retire several times over the last year, and now I finally have reluctantly agreed to accept his retirement."

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline "cannot understand" why New Mexico OL Reno Henderson "doesn’t receive move love in the scouting community."

Henderson played left tackle for the Lobos but is likely to kick inside at the next level. "Henderson is an explosive blocker effective at the line of scrimmage or on the second level," Pauline wrote. "I graded Henderson the past two seasons and believe he’s a terrific developmental prospect as a zone blocking guard."

New Mexico signed three-star 2017 S Nico Bolden.

Bolden had committed to Vanderbilt in November, but HC Derek Mason was unable to hold onto his pledge when all was said and done. The 6-foot-4, 195-pounder ranks as the No. 2 safety prospect in the state of Minnesota for the current cycle. Scout.com sees him eventually playing linebacker due to his frame. "In order to fully transition to linebacker," the outlet notes, "he will have to get stronger and get used to taking on blocks when closer to the line of scrimmage." They believe that his work as a safety at Woodbury High will benefit him should he make that transition, as he figures to have a good eye as a coverage backer with that experience.

New Mexico RB Teriyon Gipson accounted for 96 total yards and a touchdown in Saturday's NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

Gipson rushed for 64 yards and added three catches for 32 additional yards in Saturday's early draft prepper. This past season, the 5-foot-7, 168-pounder turned in his best all-around collegiate campaign, rushing for 1,269 yards (8.8 YPC) and 13 touchdowns. During the draft process, he will have to answer for some off-the-field shenanigans, as he was arrested last January on marijuana and firearm charges. He kept that information from the New Mexico coaching staff, but this being the year 2017, the team found out midway through the season. Gipson should be considered a longshot to be drafted this spring.
Jan 21 - 7:41 PM

New Mexico junior RB Richard McQuarley rushed for 68 yards and a pair of touchdowns on 17 carries in Saturday's 24-21 New Mexico Bowl victory over UTSA.

The resurgent Lobos did what they do here, grinding out 246 yards on the ground in the victory (New Mexico gained just 77 yards on only six pass attempts). It was only the school's second bowl victory in 55 years, and it secured a rare nine-win season. As for McQuarley, he returns next year as the designated bruiser and goal line back of this attack. He finished with 656 yards and 18 touchdowns this season.

New Mexico will play UTSA in the New Mexico Bowl at University Stadium in Albuquerque, N.M.

For the second straight year, the Lobos (8-4, 6-2 Mountain West) will try to defend their homefield in the New Mexico Bowl. Last time around, they were respectable in a loss to Arizona. This time, they come in on a heater, having won six of seven. The triple-option running Lobos boast a pair of 1,000-yard rushers in Teriyon Gipson and Tyrone Owens (19 combined touchdowns). S&P+ ranks the offense No. 28, while New Mexico checks in at No. 22 in the FBS with 37.8 points per game. The other side of the ball has been a year-long struggle; S&P+ pegs the lousy defense No. 120. The Roadrunners (6-6, 5-3 Conference USA), meanwhile, are bowl eligible for the first time in the program’s six-year history. S&P+ pans both the offense (No. 98) and defense (No. 89). This team does one thing well, and that strength will give UTSA at least a shot here: S&P+ lists the run defense No. 49.

New Mexico HC Bob Davie said that he expects that redshirt sophomore RB Tyrone Owens (foot) should be able to play in the New Mexico Bowl against UTSA.

The Lobos will be playing in one of the earlier bowl contests this month, but even that December 17 kickoff should allow Owens the requisite time to heal up from a foot injury which prevented him from playing in last weekend's regular-season finale against Wyoming. In 11 games this year, the 5-foot-9, 187-pound redshirt sophomore has rushed for 1,084 yards (at a stellar 8.1 YPC clip) and seven touchdowns.

New Mexico senior RB Teriyon Gipson rushed for 140 yards and a touchdown on nine carries in Saturday's 45-40 win over Air Force.

The Lobos offered up two phenomenal rushing performances in this one. Gipson finished with 140 yards on the ground while Tyrone Owens was hot on his heels with 125 yards of his own. For his part, the 5-foot-7, 168-pound Gipson averaged 15.5 YPC. His touchdown came on a 60-yard flash to glory with 9:31 remaining in the first quarter. He sat out New Mexico's loss to BSU last weekend due to a hamstring injury, but showed no signs of any hampering on Saturday. He has surpassed 100 yards rushing in three of four games played to date.

Uncommitted three-star 2017 S Nico Bolden is planning to take official visits to Vanderbilt, Washington State and Syracuse.

Bolden's Vanderbilt official is set in stone for November 17. His visits to Washington State and Syracuse don't have dates to them, yet, but the 6-foot-4, 195-pounder figures to be settling on those in the coming days. In addition to these three contenders for his commitment, two other players are pushing hard -- those being Wyoming and North Dakota State. Scout.com notes that the Woodbury, Minnesota, native "[d]oes a nice job of reading plays and getting to the ball" and that he "[c]hanges directions well and takes good angles." The outlet believes his best collegiate fit would come at linebacker.
