New Mexico State had a 57-year bowl drought going into their game against Utah State. Not only did they break that streak by getting into the Arizona Bowl, but they won the game in the most perfect way possible. Larry Rose III rushed for a touchdown in overtime to get a walk-off 26-20 victory.

And the fans went nuts and rushed a field that wasn’t even their own!
