ALBUQUERQUE, NM -- Derek Carr completed 31-of-44 passes for 416 yards and four touchdowns as Fresno State overcame an early 21-0 deficit to defeat New Mexico, 49-32. The Bulldogs improve to 6-3, 4-1 in MWC play, and are bowl eligible for the 12th time in 14 years...

Adams finished with nine catches for 198 yards and two scores - the second of which gave Fresno State a 28-24 lead.

Derek Carr overcame a slow start to finish with 416 yards and four touchdowns for the Bulldogs (6-3, 4-1 Mountain West).

Kasey Carrier ran for 136 yards and a pair of scores on 19 carries for the Lobos (4-5, 1-3), but all but 20 of the yards came in the first half.

New Mexico went up 21-0 early in the second quarter after Carrier took a draw play 30 yards for a score.
