New Mexico, the Land of Enchantment. One thing they are not enchanted with in New Mexico is college football.

Summary – When you think of hotbeds for football, New Mexico is pretty far down on the list. Perhaps not even on the list. Hal Mumme and Rocky Long both were released on their own recognizance. A New Mexico fan started a “We miss Dennis Franchione” Facebook group, but no one else joined.
Best team – New Mexico Lobos 4-8, with a victory over the hated Aggies.
Worst team – New Mexico State Aggies 3-9
Highlight of the year – The Lobos nearly beat the Utes on November 1, dropping the home game 13-10. They gave the Utes a better game than Alabama.
Lowlight of the year – the Aggies 47-2 loss to Utah State spelled curtains for coach Hal Mumme. You know your team sucks when they lose to Utah State by 45.
