New Mexico State football notes

A few notes about New Mexico State going into Saturday’s game at Kentucky:

  • NM State trailed against New Mexico until 5:46 left in the fourth quarter when Greg Hogan caught an 8-yard pass from Tyler Rogers.
  • OJ Clark caught a career-high six passes.
  • Tyler Rogers had a career-high 15 rushing attempts.
  • Rogers also racked up his second consecutive 200-yard passing game during the 2016 season. He now has 12 200-yard passing games in his career.
  • With 205 yards rushing, Rogers now has 4,164 yards over his career. This ranks eighth in career passing yards in the all-time Aggie record books. He has surpassed Charley Johnson, who finished his career with 4,144 passing yards.
  • Rogers is also sixth in career pass completions with 378 and seventh in career pass attempts with 647.
  • Rodney Butler smashed his previous career-high of 17 tackles with 24 against UNM. This was the most tackles by an Aggie since 2013 (Clint Barnard vs. UTEP) and just two shy of the single-game record.
  • In the second quarter, Dalton Herrington had a forced fumble, which he then recovered. This was the second force fumble (last at Georgia State, Sept. 6, 2014) and the third fumble recovery of his career.
  • Terrill Hanks grabbed the fourth interception of his career during the fourth quarter. The Aggies then scored the go-ahead touchdown on the ensuing drive.
  • Parker Davidson hit a career-long 45-yard field goal in the first quarter to put the Aggies on the board.
  • Davidson made a personal-best four field goals to help NM State win. This was the first time an Aggie made four field goals since 1998 when Nick Cecava hit four against Utah State.
  • Davidson now ranks 10th all-time in field goals made with 15.
