Welcome to the Deadspin 25, a college football poll that strives to be more democratic and less useless than every other preseason poll. Leading up to the college football season kickoff, we will give you previews of the 25 teams that you, the readers, voted to be most worthy of writing about. Now, No. 9 New Mexico…
One unlucky New Mexico State student was knocked over by a horse during Thursday's pregame ceremonies for the Aggies' season opener against Cal Poly.
A wild night of overtimes got longer after New Mexico State scored five points in the final 15 seconds to force overtime against San Diego State.
Utah Valley stayed atop the WAC with a 66-61 overtime win tonight against New Mexico State, but it's what happened after the game that's the real news as NMSU's K.C. Ross-Miller chucked the basketball at UVU's Holton Hunsaker amidst an attempted court-storming.
