New Mexico State senior QB Tyler Rogers completed 32-of-45 passes for 331 yards and three touchdowns in a 27-24 loss to Troy on Saturday.

Rogers has put up big numbers for the Aggies this year, going over 300 yards in each of his first three games with 10 touchdowns. He found wideout Izaiah Lottie twice in the end zone, and also found Jaleel Scott for a score. The 6-foot-3, 218-pound quarterback gets another tasty matchup when NMSU takes on UTEP next Saturday.

NFL Media's Daniel Jeremiah says New Mexico State redshirt senior WR Jaleel Scott "has rare size and ball skills."

Scott (6'6/215) has been a highlight machine in the early-going, with one-handed grabs and contested catches littered among his receptions. "Watching him live, I appreciated his ability to set up defenders and use his big body to wall them off down the field," Jeremiah wrote. "He belongs in the Reese's Senior Bowl and I believe he could end up being a middle-round pick."
Sep 15 - 2:54 PM

New Mexico State redshirt sophomore WR Royce Caldwell has been ruled academically ineligible and will not play this season.

Caldwell (5'8/175) has had a rough go of it over the last two seasons, missing five games last season due to a broken leg and being nixed for the current campaign due to academics back in August. He logged an 11-217-1 receiving line when healthy in 2016. While he will not suit up for game action this season, he has been allowed to practice with the Aggies.
Sep 8 - 10:50 PM

New Mexico State redshirt junior DB Malik Demby recorded 5.5 tackles for loss against Arizona State.

Demby has changed his game over the last few years, listed at 196 pounds compared to 230 pounds now. Demby barely played for two seasons but now appears to have an important role. It is rare for a defensive back to register this many tackles for loss, even for an entire season.

New Mexico State redshirt senior WR Jaleel Scott caught eight passes for 149 yards and two touchdowns in Thursday's 37-31 loss to Arizona State.

Beautiful work from Scott, who averaged a meaty 18.6 yards-per-reception in the contest. He also had what will end up being one of the catches of the year (we say that confidently), extending for a graceful, did-you-just-see-that one-handed grab in the left corner of the end zone in the second quarter. On the play, he showed a veteran's savvy in using the opposing corner as a brace for his body in order to hang up just long enough to extend his arm for the grab.
Sep 1 - 7:40 PM

New Mexico State senior RB Larry Rose III rushed for 60 yards on 13 carries in Thursday's 37-31 loss to Arizona State.

Rose just wasn't able to get on track in this one, posting a long run of 12 yards while averaging 4.6 YPC. He did chip in with three catches for 40 yards to hit an even 100 total yards for the game. The 5-foot-11, 184-pounder posted 865 rushing yards a year ago while being limited early while recovering from sports hernia surgery. We like him to veer closer to the 1,657 yards he put up in 2015, even if Thursday's debut was somewhat underwhelming.
Sep 1 - 6:31 PM

Sports on Earth's Matt Brown ranked New Mexico State senior RB Larry Rose III as the No. 32 running back in college football.

Rose (5'11/184) got off to a slow start to the 2016 campaign due to a sports hernia surgery, but picked up the pace as the season progressed, notching rushing efforts of at least 120 yards in three of his last four games. He finished the year with 865 yards on the ground. Assuming health for the coming season, we like him to finish closer to his uber-productive 2015 numbers in 2017 -- as a sophomore, Rose rushed for 1,657 yards (6.9 YPC) and 14 touchdowns while catching 30 passes for 283 yards.
Jul 2 - 2:18 PM

New Mexico State senior QB Tyler Rogers was granted a medical redshirt season.

Rogers missed most of 2015 with an injury, and he was also knocked out at the end of last season. In three seasons at NMSU, he's posted a 42/38 TD/INT rate.
Mar 3 - 2:54 PM

New Mexico State hired Washington State control coach Chase Holbrook as TE coach.

Holbrook is a former prolific Aggie quarterback who owns the school’s single-season and career records for passing, passing attempts, completions, touchdowns, total offense and total touchdowns. "We are really excited about Chase coming back to New Mexico State," HC Doug Martin said. "Having a former great quarterback that has his name written all over the Aggie record book will have a huge impact on us taking that next step. Chase really believes and cares deeply about the football program here. To have a coach of his talent join our staff makes us a better program immediately."
Feb 27 - 7:12 PM

New Mexico State junior RB Larry Rose III had only 12 attempts for 56 yards in Saturday's loss to Idaho.

New Mexico State was forced to abandon the run game in its attempts to throw itself back into the contest. Predictably poor results ensued. Rose has been one of the campaign's biggest fantasy disappointments to this point.

New Mexico State head coach Doug Martin told reporters he plans to use junior RB Larry Rose III "as much as I can" against ULL.

Rose dealt with hernia surgery that kept him out of the first few games of the season. Then, upon his return against Troy, Rose III was hobbled by a thigh issue. Martin made sure to point out that Rose looks better in practice this week than last. He was the best big-play running back in the nation last year and will look to continue that style of play against Louisiana-Lafayette.

New Mexico State junior RB Larry Rose III (thigh) participated in Tuesday's practice.

Rose injured his thigh in Saturday's showdown with Troy. That was his first game of the season -- a sports hernia surgery in August stole the first three games of the campaign from the 6-foot-1, 184-pounder. Barring a setback during the week, it does not appear that this current thigh injury will keep Rose from suiting up and playing against Louisiana-Lafayette on Saturday.

New Mexico State junior RB Larry Rose III is day-to-day with a thigh injury.

Thankfully, this thigh injury is said to be unrelated to the sports hernia surgery that forced Rose to miss the first three games of the season. He returned to action against Troy on Saturday, rushing for 56 yards on 12 carries before being lifted with this latest health concern. The 6-foot-11, 184-pound junior's status for this weekend's upcoming showdown with Louisiana-Lafayette should become more clear over the course of the practice week.

Playing for the first time this season, New Mexico State junior RB Larry Rose III (hernia) rushed for 56 yards on 12 carries in Saturday's 52-6 loss to Troy.

Rose underwent sports hernia surgery in August and he spent the first few weeks of the season in recovery mode. In his return on Saturday, he averaged 4.6 YPC with a long run of 21 yards. The 6-foot-11, 184-pounder should see an increased workload as the Aggies work him back into the fold this autumn. A year ago, he rushed for 1,651 yards and 12 touchdowns.
Sat, Sep 24, 2016 10:37:00 PM

New Mexico State junior RB Larry Rose III is expected to make his 2016 debut against Troy after healing from sports hernia surgery.

Rose is one of the most explosive runners in the country and has been sidelined for the first three weeks of the season. Head coach Doug Martin added a bit of information, stating "I wouldn't expect Larry to carry the ball 30 times, but I think certainly we can get a lot out of him and hopefully use him as much as we need to." Wednesday will be the first time Rose practices with contact. The Aggies have accounted for 154.7 rushing yards per game without Rose.
