The list of accomplishments for New Mexico State this season just seems to keep growing.

Aggie kicker Ethan Albertson pushed a 52-yard try through the uprights in the closing seconds on Saturday. It gave NMSU a 20-17 win over Jacksonville State and 10-3 overall record...all just one week after their first ever win over an SEC program at Auburn.

The Aggies now have double digit wins for just the second time in program history. The only other year? 1960, when New Mexico State had an 11-0 season and finished #17 in the AP Poll.

New Mexico State also finish the season with five home wins for the first time since 2002.

The Aggies overcame four turnovers by their offense on Saturday to get the win. They partially made up for their own turnovers with interceptions by Myles Rowser and Dylan Early.

NMSU will travel to Liberty next week looking for a CUSA title in their first year in the league. Fans can watch the the CUSA championship game on Friday, December 1 at 7 PM on CBS Sports Network.
