New Mexico redshirt freshman S Marcus Hayes has announced his intention to transfer from the program.

Hayes (6'0/199) had a noteworthy impact on the New Mexico defense in his first season on the field, accounting for 51 total tackles, 1.5 tackles for loss and two interceptions. For his efforts the redshirt freshman, who also led the nation in punt return average (21.2 yards), was named second team All-Mountain West. This week UNM has also bid farewell to LB Rhashaun Epting, who led the team in sacks (5.5).

New Mexico HC Bob Davie will return for the 2019 season.

Davie and the Lobos went through a tumultuous offseason which included multiple investigations and a 30-day spring suspension of the coach due to culture concerns. The season itself was a poor one, with New Mexico posting a second straight year with a 3-9 record. Davie holds a 33-54 record since taking over as head coach prior to the start of the 2013 season. You would assume that he won't have much of a leash next year.
Dec 1 - 1:04 PM

New Mexico redshirt sophomore LB Rhashaun Epting will transfer.

It's a big loss for the Lobos, as Epting lead the team in sacks (5.5) and also had 8.5 tackles for loss for New Mexico. It's the second transfer in as many days departing the program, as redshirt freshman Marcus Hayes also announced his decision to leave on Monday. Epting will have to sit out a year if he transfers to an FBS program unless he leaves with his degree.
Nov 28 - 4:38 PM

New Mexico junior QB Sheriron Jones completed 8-of-13 passes for 104 yards with an interception and ran for 56 yards in a 45-14 loss to Boise State on Friday.

Jones (6'3/196) had some moments on Friday that suggested there's reason for optimism going forward, but there were just as many moments that reminded you why New Mexico is 1-5 in conference play. It's worth mentioning that the former Tennessee quarterback is still getting used to this system, but he has to be more of a threat with his arm for the Lobos to compete with teams like the Broncos. New Mexico will take on Wyoming to close out the year next Saturday.
Nov 17 - 12:38 AM

New Mexico junior RB Ahmari Davis (undisclosed) is considered to be doubtful for the team's November 10 game at Air Force.

Davis (5'10/182) has missed two of New Mexico's last four games, the most recent absence coming in the Nov. 3 loss to San Diego State. With the chances of the junior running back being able to play against Air Force appearing to be slim, Daevon Vigilant stands to see a lot of playing time Saturday. Vigilant rushed 11 times for 45 yards in the 31-23 loss to San Diego State.
Nov 5 - 5:29 PM

New Mexico redshirt senior QB Coltin Gerhart is expected to make his second start of the season when the Lobos meet Air Force November 10.

Gerhart struggled mightily in the Lobos' Nov. 3 loss to San Diego State, completing 9-of-20 passes for 41 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. While the redshirt senior appears to be in line to start against Air Force, New Mexico HC Bob Davie did say Monday that there's a good chance UNM plays two quarterbacks. Which means Sherrion Jones is likely to get some reps as well.
Nov 5 - 5:08 PM

New Mexico redshirt senior QB Coltin Gerhart completed just 9-of-20 passes for 41 yards in Saturday's 31-23 loss against San Diego State, but he did manage two touchdowns strikes.

Gerhart rose to starter status in late September when Lamar Jordan and Tevaka Tuioti suffered concussions and he now has sent Sheriron Jones to the bench. Of course, after this stinker from a yardage perspective, the job is likely wide open again heading into the next Saturday's game at Air Force. The Lobos have to win out at Force, home against Boise State and home against Wyoming if they want to go bowling.
Nov 4 - 3:35 AM

New Mexico redshirt senior LB Evahelotu Tohi has been suspended indefinitely after getting into a fight with redshirt sophomore LB David Brown which sent Brown to the hospital.

Tohi (6'2/227) and Brown got into an altercation during a party on Saturday, with the former linebacker allegedly landing at least two hard punches to his teammate's head. Brown was hospitalized for five days following the fight, and in the police complaint, his mother said that her son had to be treated for "internal bleeding on the right side of his brain." He was released from the hospital on Thursday. On the field, Tohi's suspension will be a tough one for New Mexico to paper over. The redshirt senior has registered a team-leading 56 tackles with a pair of interceptions and a pair of passes defensed in eight games this season.
Nov 2 - 2:38 PM

New Mexico redshirt senior QB Coltin Gerhart replaced Sheriron Jones in Saturday's 61-19 loss to Utah State.

Jones throw three interceptions, including one right after halftime when the score was 52-5, so the New Mexico coaching staff put in Gerhart. The redshirt senior was much better than Jones, but he was playing in garbage time, so his performance needs to be taken with a grain of salt. It's unclear who will start next week against San Diego State, but nobody has had success for the Lobos yet.
Oct 27 - 9:14 PM

New Mexico junior QB Sheriron Jones completed 10-of-25 passes for 110 yards and three interceptions in Saturday's 61-19 loss to Utah State.

Jones (6'3/196) was benched after throwing a touchdown right after halftime when the Lobos were losing 52-5. After struggling all year long, New Mexico may try to see if Coltin Gerhart, who replaced Jones on Saturday, has anything to offer. In his limited action in complete garbage time, Gerhart threw for 110 yards with one touchdown and one interception on 12 pass attempts. The Lobos will face the San Diego State Aztecs next time out.
Oct 27 - 9:11 PM

New Mexico redshirt sophomore WR Anselem Umeh will miss the game against Utah State on Saturday to attend the wedding of his older sister.

We applaud New Mexico HC Bob Davie for not only agreeing to this, but encouraging Umeh to do so. "It’s the first time in coaching that I’ve been in this situation," Davie said. "He can’t be in two places at one time. There will be other games. There won’t be another older sister’s wedding." Umeh is considered the team’s best route runner, according to the Albuquerque Journal.
Oct 27 - 1:53 PM

New Mexico junior QB Sheriron Jones completed 15-of-32 passes for 147 yards with one touchdown and one interception in Saturday's 38-7 loss to Fresno State.

Jones' (6'3/196) was at least able to pick up 42 yards on 10 carries tonight, but Jones returned to early season form in the blowout loss. There was some optimism that New Mexico's offense had figured things out since Jones had thrown 10 touchdowns in the previous three weeks, but it's fair to question if those big passing numbers were reflective of the poor opponents and not the New Mexico offense. The Lobos will look to get back on track versus a good Utah State team next Saturday.
Oct 20 - 11:46 PM

New Mexico senior RB Zahneer Shuler was ejected for targeting during the first half of Saturday's game against Fresno State.

Due to the timing of the ejection, which was handed down after a blindside block, Shuler (6'1/232) will not miss any game time during New Mexico's October 27 game at Utah State. The senior running back entered Saturday's game with 171 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns on 28 carries.
Oct 20 - 9:07 PM

New Mexico junior QB Sheriron Jones completed 12-of-20 passes for 165 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 20-18 loss to Colorado State.

Jones (6'3/196) connected on scoring tosses of 23 and five yards in the third and fourth quarters, respectively. The latter score put the Lobos up 18-17, but CSU managed to come back to win it via a 23-yard field goal at the end of regulation. Jones had thrown for four touchdowns in each of his last two games (against Liberty and UNLV) before coming back to earth by degrees on Saturday. A showdown with Fresno State shows next on New Mexico's schedule.
Oct 13 - 9:27 PM

New Mexico redshirt senior RB Tyrone Owens rushed for 41 yards and one touchdown on 17 carries in Saturday's 50-14 win over UNLV.

Owens and the Lobos scored the most points against UNLV in it's school's history. The redshirt senior wasn't efficient (2.4 YPC) but he was able to convert a goal line touchdown in the second quarter. Owens, who led the team in carries, now has 20 career touchdowns and will continue to be the New Mexico's leading rusher next week against Colorado State.
