CORVALLIS, Oregon (Ticker) -- Derek Anderson and Dwight Wright helped Oregon State overcome some more kicking problems.

Anderson passed for two touchdowns and Wright rushed for 108 yards as Oregon State opened the home portion of its schedule with a 17-7 victory over New Mexico.

After a scoreless first quarter, Anderson threw touchdown passes of seven yards to Joe Newton and 11 yards to Anthony Wheat-Brown in the second quarter. He went 24-of-50 for 274 yards.

Wright paced a ball-control attack by carrying 30 times for the Beavers (2-1), who held the ball for nearly 40 minutes and garnered a 398-114 advantage in total yards.

The Beavers also had more trouble in the kicking game as John Dailey missed field goals of 43 and 34 yards. Dailey has replaced Alexis Serna, who missed three extra points in a season-opening 22-21 overtime loss at Louisiana State.

The Lobos (1-2) struggled the entire way and lost starting quarterback Kole McKamey to a concussion on the first half. Backup Tali Ena went a woeful 3-of-18 for 29 yards and an interception.

New Mexico's DonTrell Moore, who led the Mountain West Conference in rushing last season, was held to 22 yards on seven carries.
