And You Care Because … Donnel Pumphrey went off, running for 246 yards with a 49-yard scoring run in the second quarter and a 93-yard dash late in the third to help San Diego State overcome a mistake-filled day for the win. Lamar Jordan connected with Carlos Wiggins for a 45-yard touchdown, and Teriyon Gipson ran for a one-yard score to keep New Mexico in the game, but it was Pumphrey’s run, and the Aztec defense, that put the clamps down over the last 20 minutes.
