No, the Miners did not light up the Sun Bowl scoreboard for 42 points Saturday night.  Instead they scored only 16, but still edged out Memphis by a field goal.  The UTEP D was the story, limiting the Tigers to just 107 total yards in the 2nd half.

When was the last time two teams each racked up 288 total yards of offense?

How about Saturday night.

Donald Buckram returned to the field for the first time in 2010, but needed 3 quarters to get comfortable. The win was not a thing of beauty, but head coach Mike Price knows he'll take any kind of win that he can get. The Miners are 3-1 with an excellent chance to be 5-1.  First, they need to beat one of the worst teams in college football, the UNM Lobos. It should be a cake walk, but Miners fans know that nothing is ever easy.
