UNM Football loses to NMSU for the first time since 2017

NEW MEXICO (KRQE) – UNM Football suffered a tough loss Saturday night in Las Cruces, 21-9. This is their 4th straight loss and also their first in the Rio Grande Rivalry since 2017 (ending a 3 game win streak against the Aggies).

“We can’t get out behind the chains ourselves when the ball isn’t moving when you get penalties you kill yourself as a football team and that’s the most disappointing part of the night. I thought the communication was better on the sideline but it wasn’t. they’re getting better results. So obviously we have to fix that if we’ll have a chance in the next 6 weeks,” UNM head coach Danny Gonzales said.

UNM didn’t find the end zone once in this game, as Miles Kendrick and this offense struggled to produce, once again. UNM committed 11 penalties in this game and Kendrick was sacked 4 times.

Now 2-5 on the year, UNM will host Fresno State on Saturday at 4:30 p.m.
