Lobos outscore, outlast Air Force

........................................................................................................................................................................................

On a  night the University of New Mexico retired the jersey of one of football’s all-time defensive greats, there wasn’t much defense. But the Lobos nonetheless defeated visiting Air Force 45-37 in a nationally televised Friday night game at University Stadium.

As Lobo All-American and retired Chicago Bear star linebacker Brian Urlacher looked on, the Lobos improved to 3-6 overall, 1-4 in the Mountain West Conference. Air Force is 2-8, 0-6.

Urlacher’s No. 44 Lobo jersey was retired during halftime ceremonies.
