Continued from Page 81 to tie the game at 28 with left in the third quarter The Lobos then forced TCU to punt and after UNMs ensuing drive stalled the Lobos attempted a 51yard Kenny Byrd field goal that missed wide right That was the end of the come back I really appreciated the heart and effort they put in fighting themselves back into the ball UNM head coach Rocky Long said We went for the long field goal and didnt get it then blew two assignments on defense that ended up being big plays Once we fought back in the ballgame I thought we were going to So did the small red vein of UNM fans who arose in the stands as soon as the Lobos did on the field But four plays later on fourth andone TCU went for it and backup quarterback JefFBallard threw as he was hit to a wide open Chad Andrus Tor a 38yard touchdown Two UNM defenders bit on the inside allowing the 6foot4 tight end to sneak by and make the catch that put TCU up 3528 After the Lobos were forced to punt Ballard on the very next play ran a quarterback sneak left 56 yards for another touchdown for 4228 with left in the third quarter Ballard replacing injured start ing quarterback Tye Gunn had a night football players only dream about He did a really good Long said He had it pretty easy early on Its really easy to hand the ball off from the 6yard line and its real easy to fake it in there and run the naked bootleg and take it in from the 7 But he made a couple of bigtime plays late in the Easy or not Ballard ran nine times for 79 yards and four touch downs and completed 16 of 28 passes for 192 yards and two touchdowns in his first career start Ballard a 61 junior also engi neered a quickstrike TCU offense that had three oneplay scoring drives and four touchdowns in 10 seconds or less of possession time

ball that was intercepted by TCUs Quincy Butler and returned 41yards to set up an 8yard touchdown run by tailback Robert Merrill The Horned Frogs 41 overall 30 Mountain West scored touch downs on four of their first seven possessions and turned the three New Mexico firstquarter turn overs two McKamey picks and a Moore rumble touch downs I hate to admit that Ive been around that kind of stuff several times in my coaching Long said Sometimes thats just the way it goes Sometimes things dont go your way and the ball starts rolling their way and theres not much you can do about it Obviously we made a couple bad throws that turned the ball over inside our 10yard line and youre not going to stop them inside your 10 very TCUs average starting field position in the first quarter was the New Mexico 36 But the Lobos recov ered in the second quarter get ting a 3yard TD from tailback DonTrell Moore to cap an 80yard drive and a 6yard score on a pass from McKamey to Hank Baskett Moore had a

senior nose tackle Marcus Parker said We got ourselves in it but we didnt have enough to come back and to get a lead to where we couldve won the McKamey recovered from his two early interceptions he threw two in UNMs first three possessions of the game to go 25for43 for 245 yards and two touchdowns But the bad stat was the four interceptions Its one of those things where games like this test the true char acter of your McKamey said Down 28nothing you cant give up It looked pretty grim but we called a few plays executed and its all about passion and heart We came back and made a valiant effort but we cant make that many mistakes and expect to McKamey threw two more interceptions trying to make something happen in the fourth quarter You cant get outside the he said You cant make too much hap
