Bright scored from a yard out for the first touchdown, then Derek Wright caught a 16-yard pass from Love with 23 seconds until the half to make it 31-6 at halftime.


Defensively, Williams had two interceptions for USU — both in Aggie territory, with the second ending New Mexico’s final drive — and Tipa Galeai had five tackles and two sacks.
