New Mexico State never trails, stuns Auburn on road

New Mexico State received $1.85 million in what was expected to be an easy win on Saturday for Southeastern Conference member Auburn.

Instead, the Aggies left Jordan-Hare Stadium with a bag full of money and a 31-10 non-conference win to add to what has already been a magical season for the team. It was the first win in four tries for the Aggies against the Tigers.

Entering Saturday’s game the Aggies were 0-27 all-time against teams from the SEC.

NMSU earned its first Power 5 win since they beat Jerry Kill’s Minnesota team in 2012. When Tony Samuel was the head coach, the Aggies defeated Arizona State in Tempe in 1999 when the Sun Devils were ranked No. 22.
