What’s Going To Happen
New Mexico State pulled off a huge win in the rivalry game last year, and now, in its last season as a Sun Belt team, can it pull off something special again with an offense that gave Arizona State fits last week?
The Aggies bombed away late to make it interesting in the fourth quarter, but the Sun Devils were able to hold on. Now the O has to crank it back up again against a New Mexico team that has to be a whole lot sharper.
The Lobos were trying to throw the ball a little more in the opener, putting up 18 times – a lot for them – in the 38-14 win over Abilene Christian. But the running game was still the running game, averaging 6.5 yards per carry and hitting the big home runs to put the game away.
But now the Lobo secondary has to hold up.
ACU’s quarterbacks combined to throw for 274 yards, and now New Mexico has to deal with Tyler Rogers, who was on fire late vs. ASU to finish with 398 yards and three touchdowns.
New Mexico won’t mess around. It’ll go to what it knows with the running game early on, it’ll control the clock and keep Rogers on the sidelines for way too much of the game, and it’ll get revenge for last year.
But it’ll be an entertaining revenge. The Aggies will make this tough.
