DALLAS -- Teriyon Gipson rushed for 140 yards with a touchdown and caught a pass for another score, leading New Mexico to a 45-40 victory over Air Force on Saturday.Playing at the historic Cotton Bowl not far from his Dallas high school, Gipson ran 60 yards down the sideline on an option pitch to give the Lobos (3-3, 2-1 Mountain West) a 14-3 lead in the first quarter. New Mexico never trailed.Nate Romine threw for 280 yards and two touchdowns for the Falcons (4-2, 1-2), who lost their second straight since a victory over service academy rival Navy.The neutral site game at the Texas state fair featured teams with a combined 51 players from the Lone Star State, including 17 starters.New Mexicos nation-leading rushing offense had 373 yards against an Air Force defense that was No. 2 nationally against the run and had allowed 401 yards all season coming in.The teams combined for 974 yards -- 443 for New Mexico and 531 for Air Force -- and eight scoring drives of 70-plus yards.But both defenses stiffened in the fourth quarter, when the Lobos had just 9 yards rushing and punted four times. Romine was sacked three times after halftime, and Air Force stalled twice in the final 3 1/2 minutes when trailing by five.Lamar Jordan had a career-high two touchdown passes for the ground-oriented Lobos. After a 12-yarder to Gipson midway through the second quarter, he floated one to a wide-open Q Drennan for a 45-yard score .

But consecutive Mountain West losses have changed their outlook.UP NEXTNew Mexico: Home against Louisiana-Monroe next Saturday.Air Force: Home against Hawaii next Saturday.---This story corrects previous versions to show 9 yards rushing in the fourth quarter for New Mexico instead of 10 and 182 yards receiving for Jalen Robinette instead of 169.

Wholesale Custom Diamondbacks Shirts . 8 Iowa State on Saturday, sending the Cyclones to their third consecutive loss. The Longhorns (14-4, 3-2) got their biggest win of the season with their third in the row in the Big 12. A patient crowd in Mirpur waits for VIP movement to pass through, beyond the barricade. This is the Dhaka term for a motorcade that is given high priority in traffic and the one that is about to pass through, the England cricket team convoy, is of the highest importance.It starts with an advanced team of police packed in pick-up trucks, followed by similar vehicles containing a Rapid Action Battalion and then the convoy starts with a long line with two buses in the middle. It is followed by more armed security men and women, a couple of minibuses, and then a fire brigade truck to round off.The convoy of about 10 to 12 different type of vehicles speeds through the emptied 8 km path from the Radisson hotel to the Shere Bangla National Stadium. The scene was similar in Chittagong where the roads at times were narrower than Dhakas.The most convenient location, of course, was the 20 yards the players walked to cross the road from the Chittagong hotel to the MA Aziz Stadium for Englands practice matches. But the longest the convoy had to travel was from their Dhaka hotel to the Fatullah Cricket Stadium which was 25km cutting right through Dhakas main artery from north to south.This was the scene for more than four weeks. Crowds waited patiently in front of every alleyway and street leading to the main road that connects the team hotel and stadium. It was inconvenient for hundreds of thousands of people, who were backlogged in various traffic jams linked to the convoys movement.Security was the most critical end of the bargain for England touring Bangladesh, and it was settled in mid-August when the ECB gave the go-ahead for the tour after a comprehensive security inspection****If the adjudicators of the man-of-the-series award took a wider view of events leading up to Englands tour of Bangladesh, Mehedi Hasan and Ben Stokes would have found competition coming from Reg Dickason, the ECBs director of security management. Although he says that it wasnt his job to convince the England players to tour Bangladesh, it was Dickasons iron-clad assurance that encouraged the ECB to give the green signalI didnt have to convince them, it wasnt my job Dickason told ESPNcricinfo. The awareness was heightened by the terrible attack on July 1. Where we travel throughout the world theres potential for such an attack as is shown in Germany, Belgium and France. Bangladesh was no different. From our point of view, it didnt really materially change the programme that we were going to put around the team.He said that Bangladeshs track record of delivering security as promised helped in building trust for Englands tour.History of previous performance definitely comes into play. Everyone is always well intentioned. I think what we have to establish is the ability of the organisers to do what they have said. A lot of trust came from the U-19 World Cup.The main purpose of the risk assessment for the Under-19 World Cup was to see if the event was safe to go ahead, and we deemed that it was. We came out here to see what the BCB and the government was actually going to provide. It went very well. They did everything they said they were going to do, said Dickason.Like most places in Dhaka after the July 1 terrorist attack in Gulshan, the BCB headquarters in Mirpur came under heightened security. The following month, Dickason, ECBs director of cricket operations John Carr and PCA chief executive David Leatherdale travelled to Bangladesh for the inspection.We met with the BCB and the local police, intelligence agencies, three overseas diplomatic missions and finally the Prime Minister. So based on what we were told and what we had witnessed in the U-19 World Cup, we had some degree of confidence we decided that this tour should go ahead and that was the recommendation, said Dickason.So on September 30, was Dickason nervous when the plane carrying the England players landed in Dhaka? I wasnt nervous but I am always concerned. I am conservative by nature. It is a fairly heavy responsibility with peoples safety.We got out just before the team. With the help of the BCB, we made sure things would be done exactly the way they said it would. It was done that way. In all of our tours we pplan for worst, hope for the best - thats the underlying methodology, he said.dddddddddddd****You can understand why a player might think the security issues would disrupt their focus. Its not that there is any apparent hole in the cordon; its more that you can never escape a reminder of the need for it. When they open their curtains in the morning, they see armed police preventing cars from approaching the hotel. When they open their hotel door, they have armed police patrolling the landing. If they look up at training, they see a marksman on the roof of every adjacent building. The hotels are very good, but some of the players have been here a month and they arent allowed out. At every moment you are reminded: there have been threats; there is an issue. Focusing all your concentration on the ball at such moments might well be difficult.The most remarkable aspect of this is the convoy. Every time the team (and accompanying media) need to go anywhere, the roads are cleared and closed, a cordon of several hundred police line the route to ensure pedestrians cannot approach and a convoy of buses, people carriers, fire trucks and heavily-armed swat teams drive as quickly as possible past bewildered - and presumably frustrated - onlookers. Thats not as easy as it sounds: some of the roads are poor and the speed bumps in these parts are viciously effective. So, in both Chittagong and Dhaka, there are moments when the convoy slows to a crawl. Those points on the journey are especially well patrolled by army and police personnel, with the swat team vehicles driving alongside the team bus to ensure that anyone trying to reach the players will have to go through them first.The most dangerous it ever felt was when an over-zealous driver has struggled to stop. With no seat belts in the van, it is fair to say he gave the Test Match Special team - and your ESPNcricinfo correspondent - a bit of a wake-up.Generally, though, it felt well organised and safe. And, once you try and venture out on your own (a 5kms journey took two hours in a taxi one night), you realise the benefits of the escort. England have been looked after exceptionally well.****Dickason observed that despite the heightened security provided in Bangladesh which he called gold standard, it would probably not be similar in other cricketing destinations.I dont think it is a one-size fits all. Risk tolerance in different countries varies. I have been in international sport for 20 years and the road closures in Dhaka and Chittagong and the government input is as good as I have ever seen.I dont know if this will be standard but it is certainly the gold standard at the moment. I dont know if it will be rolled out in tours in places where the perception of risk and the actual risk is a little bit lower, he said.England staying in Bangladesh for the full tour has been a major boost for the BCB. A visit from Sean Carroll, Cricket Australias head of security, last week was the first sign that Australia are actively thinking of visiting Bangladesh next August.We have been very happy with the level of security. Each country will have their list of criteria. Sean Carroll is a very competent chap in his field. He is having a close look at things and will make a recommendation to his board, said Dickason.What has also been encouraging is the sensitivity shown by the touring side to the sacrifices made by the people who get caught up the convoys movement. I think it is a sacrifice. We have probably inconvenienced them.Our players were very conscious of that, and we were always on time. If we were a minute late, it would inconvenience another hundred thousand people. The Bangladeshi people have been absolutely sensational, he said.There is little doubt that the tour basically saved Bangladesh from a long isolation of hosting international cricket. It would have deflated the general mood of the country further but now there is a bit more to look forward to. After all, they have just defeated England in a Test match. Even the unseasonal heat of November doesnt seem to bother anyone. ' ' '
