McDermott/Williams Lead Aggies In Tough Loss At La. Tech

Written by: NMSU Athletic Dept.

RUSTON, LA. - Freshmen quarterback J.J. McDermott threw for 319 yards and two touchdowns in his first career start for the New Mexico State football team, but Louisiana Tech came back from a 21-9 fourth quarter deficit to win, 22-21 Saturday night at Joe Aillet Stadium.

For the first three and a half quarters of the game, the Aggies had dominated the Bulldogs and held 12 point lead with under seven minutes to play. But two touchdown passes from La Tech quarterback Zac Champion put the Bulldogs up by one, 22-21, with 1:53 left to play.

The Aggies faced a fourth-and-one on their own 40 yard-line and McDermott’s pass to Chris Williams was broken up giving the Bulldogs the victory. La Tech improves to 2-4 on the year and 1-2 in WAC play while the loss pushes the Aggies record back to 3-4 and 0-2 in conference play.  Continue Reading This Post >>
