The University of New Mexico's comeback bid fell just short, losing 27-24 to Colorado State in its "Lobos Love Pink" game on Friday night despite Tyrone Owens rushing for 159 yards and a touchdown.

Overall the team outgained Colorado State 450-411 and UNM rushed for 354 yards a week after getting just 109, despite massive changes along the offensive line.

There were heroes aplenty, but the biggest was certainly Jason Sanders, who kicked a career-long 53-yard field goal with no time left to propel the Lobos to a 16-13 win in the sweltering heat and humidity at Tulsa, evening UNM's record at 2-2.

The New Mexico Lobos' defense kept them in the game, but in the end it wasn't enough to overcome a stout Boise State defense as the Lobos dropped a 28-14 decision in Boise to fall to 1-2 on the season and 0-1 in the Mountain West.

The University of New Mexico senior whose last name ends with "Lobos" and owned 12 career at-bats stepped to the plate in the most crucial situation of the season for UNM in the team's season finale.

The University of New Mexico baseball team couldn't take advantage of its chances as the Lobos fell to No. 19 San Diego 7-2 on Wednesday night at Fowler Park.
