Arizona 45, New Mexico 37
It looked like another wild, come-back victory was going into the Gildan New Mexico Bowl record book. The New Mexico Lobos were working on a potential game-winning drive after trailing by 18 when the Arizona Wildcats thwarted it with an interception to secure the 45-37 win. The Wildcats’ Anu Solomon took home the Offensive MVP award, throwing two touchdowns and rushing for another. He and the UofA offense needed just 19:38 minutes of possession to win their second bowl game in Albuquerque. Scooby Wright, III garnered the Defensive MVP honors with a game-high 15 tackles, including 11 solo, and 2 sacks.
