NM State Football: Top 10 Plays of 2017; #3

The TD run that made history.

NCAA Football: Arizona Bowl-New Mexico State vs Utah State
EVERYBODY GO CRAZY

The countdown is...well...counting down. We’re up (or is it down?) to play number three! Have you enjoyed the list so far? I hope so because the best plays are yet to come.

Today’s installment comes courtesy of already legendary running back Larry Rose III and his TD run that made history.

How Plays Were Chosen

I spray painted my lawn with the plays and whichever square my dog peed on made the list (just kidding).

“The Run”

It’s honestly so hard for me to put this play here because, lets be honest, it was one of the most exciting plays of the year. Larry Rose III scored in overtime to beat Utah State and clinch NMSU’s first bowl win since 1960 (and keep them undefeated in bowls).

There’s really not much to say about this play. It just speaks for itself. Here’s to another bowl game in 2018! Wobble on!
