What’s Going To Happen
San Diego State will likely have to distinction of being the best team to not be in the mix for a Group of Five conference championship or a New Year’s Six bowl.
Playing out the string isn’t fun for the two-time defending Mountain West champ, but even with the losses to Boise State and Fresno State at home killing the season, this can be a great year with 11 wins – if the Aztecs win a bowl game – with wins over Stanford and Air Force along the way.
New Mexico has lost six straight in an annoying season when the offense just couldn’t seem to do anything consistently right. As ugly as this has been, though, beating San Diego State would be a nice way to end things – even if the campaign has been a dud.
Unfortunately for the Lobos, the running game has to go against the best run defense in the Mountain West, and their defense has to deal with Rashaad Penny going for something special.
He’s not going to get any close to the Heisman than be third on several ballots, but he’s 176 yards away from hitting the 2,000-yard mark. Considering he’s blown past 200 yards on the ground in the last three games, he’s a reason to watch.
The Lobo run D has been solid for most of the season, but it just gave up 323 yards and three scores to UNLV.
