ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- Tevaka Tuioti threw for 327 yards and four touchdowns to lead New Mexico past Incarnate Word 62-30 in the season opener.
New Mexico vowed to open up the offense this season and showed it right away as Tuioti had 192 yards passing in the first quarter, surpassing the entire-game totals for nine Lobo games last season, including the final six.
Tuioti's touchdown total was the most for a Lobo quarterback in 20 years.
New Mexico's wide receiver Q' Drennan was hurt while making a leaping, twisting catch in the first quarter. He lay motionless for about 10 minutes before he was loaded into an ambulance. His status was not immediately available.
New Mexico had 361 passing yards and 319 rushing for the game. Incarnate Word countered with 244 rushing and 322 passing.
