ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) New Mexico is looking to keep pushing forward coming off a 9-4 season and consecutive bowl appearances, including the program's first postseason win since 2007.
The recent success, including the Lobos' victory over UTSA in the New Mexico Bowl last December, has created a new mindset within the program and brought attention from outside.
"We won seven of our last eight last year," coach Bob Davie said. "I think there is such a feeling here within the program that we've put so much work into this, as players, as coaches, we just don't want to take a step back. We know how hard momentum is to get and there's such a fine line between winning and losing so we just don't want to step back."
