Arizona 20, New Mexico 14:

Kelvin Eafon and Trung Canidate combined for three touchdowns and 172 rushing yards, leading Arizona to a 20-14 victory over New Mexico in the inaugural Insight.Com Bowl in Tucson, Arizona.

Recap  Gane Summary

Arizona QB Ortege Jenkins isn't all that accurate (48.9 percent completed), but with 19 TDs and only 5 INTs, he doesn't make dumb decisions. New Mexico QB Graham Leigh is even more impressive -- 23 TDs, 8 INTs and 60 percent completed. He's No 10 in the nation in pass efficiency.

Home-field advantage won't be easy to overcome for the Lobos, who must bounce back from a blowout at the hands of Colorado State in the WAC Championship game. Arizona is on the other end of the momentum swing -- the Wildcats are soaring after beating the Sun Devils. Everything seems to be in Arizona's favor.

Leigh had 3 TD passes in five different games this season.
