Rogers 5 TDs lead New Mexico St. past Texas St. 50-10
LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) Tyler Rogers accounted for five touchdowns and Larry Rose III ran for 123 yards as New Mexico State defeated Texas State 50-10 on Saturday.
The game was delayed after Texas State's team was involved in a minor bus accident. There were no serious injuries, but wide receiver Elijah King was sent to the hospital for precautionary reasons, Bobcats spokesman Rick Poulter said.
Rogers had a hand in all four of New Mexico State's (3-7, 2-4 Sun Belt) first quarter touchdowns. He threw scores to Royce Caldwell and Tyrian Taylor, ran for a score himself and caught a touchdown from Jonathan Boone for a 28-0 lead.
The Bobcats' lone touchdown came on Anthony Taylor's 10-yard run with 5:54 left to play.
Tyler Jones passed for 97 yards and was intercepted three times in a game where Texas State (2-8, 0-6) used three quarterbacks.
