LAS CRUCES -

Back-to-back champions.

The Las Cruces High School Football team won the New Mexico state 5-A title beating  its bitter, cross-town rival Mayfield.

The Bulldawgs beat the Trojans, 27-26, in sub-freezing conditions Saturday afternoon at Aggie Memorial Stadium in Las Cruces.

The two met just week prior for the district title, which Mayfield won.
