Colorado State defeats New Mexico 38-14

Oct 31, 2010 - 1:32 AM FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) -- Freshman quarterback Pete Thomas ignited a 21-point first quarter with a touchdown pass, Leonard Mason ran for 124 yards and three scores, and Colorado State defeated winless New Mexico 38-14 Saturday night.

New Mexico lost starting quarterback B.R. Holbrook to a right shoulder injury late in the first quarter. He was hit by nose tackle Guy Miller and drilled into the turf as he released a pass that fell incomplete. The force of the blow sent Holbrook's helmet flying.

Thomas, standing up to the rush, delivered a 43-yard pass to Lou Greenwood for Colorado State's first touchdown, starting a 31-7 run that carried the Rams (3-6, 2-3 Mountain West) to a 31-14 halftime lead.

New Mexico (0-8, 0-4) fell to 1-19 in two seasons under coach Mike Locksley and have yet to win on the road. The Lobos' lone victory came against Colorado State last November, a 29-27 decision in Albuquerque.

Colorado State didn't leave the door open for late-game heroics this time around.

Thomas, who was 17 of 25 for 256 yards, hit tight end Eric Peitz for a 32-yard completion, helping set up Mason's first touchdown run. His 3-yard score snapped a 7-7 tie.

Tony Drake shook free on a reverse for a 34-yard touchdown run, giving Colorado State its first 21-point first quarter since Sept. 24, 2005, against Nevada.

After New Mexico's Stump Godfrey passed 10 yards to Ty Kirk for a score to pull the Lobos within 21-14, Colorado State answered with 27-yard field goal by Ben Deline and a 38-yard touchdown run by Mason, who had his sixth-career 100-yard rushing game and third this season.

Mason, who had 15 carries, added his career-best third rushing TD on a 2-yard run late in the third quarter. Freshman Chris Nwoke added 99 yards rushing on 19 carries.

New Mexico scored the game's first TD on James Wright's 1-yard run, set up by Holbrook's 41-yard completion to Kirk.

Holbrook was 4 of 6 for 59 yards. Godfrey was 8 of 16 for 82 yards and a touchdown.
