LAS CRUCES, N.M. -- Charles Ross rushed for a career-high 167 yards and one touchdown as Rice rolled past New Mexico State 45-19 on Saturday night.

Taylor McHargue had 179 total yards with one touchdown through the air and three more on the ground for Rice (5-2, 3-0 C-USA). The Owls led 21-3 after one quarter and had a season-high 409 yards rushing and five rushing touchdowns. The 45 total points was also a season-high for Rice.

New Mexico State's (0-7) first touchdown came on an 85-yard reception by Austin Franklin. The Aggies defense gave up 515 total yards and their offence committed three turnovers.

Chris Boswell kicked at 50-yard field goal at the start of the fourth quarter, the 13th in his career at Rice from that distance or more.
