ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Two teams led by strong quarterbacks will make their first college football bowl game appearance in years when they face off in the New Mexico Bowl on Dec. 21.

Running back Kapri Bibbs leads the nation with 28 rushing touchdowns and quarterback Garrett Grayson ranks among the country's top 20 in passing yards (3,327).
