Defense kept New Mexico Highlands in the game for most of the first half, but the overwhelming strength of Nebraska-Kearney prevailed in a 52-3 rout Saturday at Perkins Stadium.
UNK, which jumped from 21st to 13th in the NCAA Division II national rankings this past week, is the No. 1 team in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference at 6-1 overall and 5-0 in league play.
Highlands fell to 0-7, 0-5, and will try again for its first win Saturday when Colorado State-Pueblo comes to town.
