Cats outlast Lobos in shootout

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Anu Solomon threw two touchdowns passes and ran for another score to help Arizona hold off pesky New Mexico 45-37 on Saturday in a wild New Mexico Bowl.

Arizona (7-6) and its quick offense overwhelmed the Lobos (7-6) in a game that saw New Mexico surge late after being down as many of 18 points.

Jared Baker ran for 107 yards and three touchdowns, and Cayleb Jones had 182 yards receiving and a touchdown. Linebacker Scooby Wright III, who battled injures all season, came back for the bowl game and made two sacks.

New Mexico quarterback Lamar Jordan ran for three touchdowns and passed for another before leaving the game in the third quarter with an injury. The Lobos then turned to a committee of running backs to get back in the game.
