ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico (Ticker) -- Katie Hnida stole Dontrell Moore's thunder.
Hnida became the first female to score in a Division I football game with a pair of extra points in the fourth quarter and Moore scored four touchdowns as New Mexico coasted to a 72-8 victory over Texas St-San Marcos.
Hnida missed an extra point in a 27-13 loss to UCLA last season in the Las Vegas Bowl, becoming the first female to participate in a Division I-A game. The 5-9, 140-pound native of Littleton, Colorado made history with an extra point in this one after Hank Baskett's 20-yard touchdown pass from Tali Ena with 5:05 remaining. The extra point gave the Lobos a 65-8 lead.
The kicker, whose blond hair streamed out the back of her helmet, added another extra point on New Mexico's final touchdown.
The outcome was long decided by the time Hnida made history since Moore scored three touchdowns in the first quarter for a 21-0 lead.
Casey Kelly threw three touchdown passes in the second quarter as the Lobos built a 42-7 bulge at intermission.
Moore carried 20 times for 109 yards and Kelly was an efficient 12-of-16 for 165 yards. The Lobos finished with 556 yards.
Texas State-San Marcos played its first game under its new name, formerly Southwest Texas State. It marked coach Manny Matsakis' debut.
