    LAS CRUCES  — The University of New Mexico football team used what coach Bob Davie called its biggest game of the year to get the biggest monkey off its back.

    Kasey Carrier rushed for 129 yards and the Lobos snapped a 24-game road losing streak with a 27-14 victory over New Mexico State on Saturday night.

    New Mexico’s previous road win also came in Las Cruces when they defeated New Mexico State 35-24 on Sept. 27, 2008. The four-year road skid had been the longest current FBS streak in the nation.

    City Attorney Dave Romero characterized the moratorium as insurance against fracking, a process whereby a large amount of pressurized water with chemicals is injected into wells and bores to crack rock and free oil or gas. The previous moratorium expired about six months ago.
