The road proved no kinder to New Mexico Highlands’ hard-luck football team, which lost 73-0 at Chadron State this past Saturday.
NMHU struggled to contain the Eagles’ ground game (441 net yards), as Stevann Brown, Kevin Coy Derek Jackson and Cody Paul ran for two touchdowns apiece. Paul added a 70-yard punt return score for the final points with 2:22 left.
The Cowboys (0-7) were held to one third-down conversion in 17 attempts.
Three of Highlands’ remaining four games are at Perkins Stadium.
