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.

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.

New Mexico head coach Bob Davie says he will handle senior RB Teriyon Gipson's discipline internally.

Gipson, who missed the last game due to a concussion, is expected to return following the bye week against San Jose State. Arrested in January for marijuana possession and unlawful possession of a firearm, Gipson kept the news from the coaching staff. They found out last week. And the Albuquerque Journal found out that Gipson had eight outstanding warrants for traffic citations and failure to report in court. The gun charge was dropped. Gipson has a court date set for October 27 on the marijuana charge.

New Mexico senior RB Teriyon Gipson will face disciplinary action in relation to a January arrest on misdemeanor gun and marijuana possession charges

"The kid thought that because it was a misdemeanor it would just disappear and they chose to go that path rather than get us in on it right away," said HC Bob Davie, who only recently found out about the arrest. Gipson's weapons charge has been dropped, with the marijuana charge still pending. Discipline from the team has yet to be sorted out. Independent of this case, the 5-foot-7, 168-pound senior was already expected to miss this weekend's contest with Rutgers after suffering a head injury against New Mexico State on Saturday.

New Mexico senior RB Teriyon Gipson has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Rutgers due to a head injury.

Gipson suffered the head injury in Saturday's loss to New Mexico State. The 5-foot-7, 168-pounder has accumulated 243 yards rushing and four touchdowns through two games. Much of that came in a superlative 181-yard performance against South Dakota in the season-opener. Tyrone Owens figures to see the majority of carries in Gipson's absence.

New Mexico senior RB Teriyon Gipson destroyed South Dakota in Thursday's 48-21 win, rushing for 181 yards and two touchdowns on just eight carries.

Gipson was clearly ready to rock and/or roll for the start of the 2016 campaign. He jumped out of the gates on Thursday, scoring on a 75-yard scamper for his first carry, then besting even that on his second carry by bursting for an 84-yard touchdown run. Between the two teams, the first quarter saw four touchdown runs -- all of 40 yards or longer. The 5-foot-7, 168-pound Gipson has rushed for at least 800 yards in each of the past two seasons. He has already accumulated almost a quarter of that mark one game into the 2016 season. Not too shabby. He will try for similar results against in-state rival New Mexico State next time the Lobos take the field.

New Mexico OL coach Jason Lenzmeier resigned from his post.

Per a statement from HC Bob Davie, Lenzmeier will be heading into the private sector, as he would like to spend more time with his family. "We appreciate all that he has done for New Mexico Football and wish he and his family well," Davie said. Lenzmeier has now played out two stints with the Lobos. He initially served as OL coach from 2006-2008, then accepted the same position with New Mexico State in 2009. He stuck there until 2011, when Bob Davie was hired as New Mexico's head coach. Davie made Lenzmeier his first staff hire, a sign of the respect he has for the 35-year-old.

Vikings signed New Mexico RB Jhurell Pressley.

Pressley (5'10/206) was a human highlight reel in New Mexico's ground attack, wrapping his career with a 394/2,725/35 rushing line on an absurd 6.92 yards per carry. Snubbed by the Combine, Pressley put his speed on display at his Pro Day, clocking 4.4-flat and pumping 25 bench-press reps. Pressley played in an option offense at New Mexico and only had 18 career catches, but he's an intriguing flyer based on his big-play running ability.

NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt sees New Mexico RB Jhurell Pressley as a potential sixth-round selection.

"[During his Pro Day, Pressley] showed outstanding speed (his 40 time would have been the second-best mark at the combine among RBs), quickness and strength," Brandt wrote, adding, "I wouldn't be surprised if some team grabbed him in the sixth round." While the 5-foot-10, 206-pound back blazed his way through the 40-yard dash in 4.38 seconds and 4.41 seconds during his early March Pro Day, only two NFL teams actually sent representatives to the event. Those two clubs were the Cardinals and Panthers -- both teams were among the more attentive squads in making the Pro Day rounds and meeting with prospects over the last month.
