What’s Going To Happen
It’s do-or-die time for the two Mountain division also-rans. They’re each out out of the title hunt, but there’s still a shot for the winner to go bowling.
Utah State is coming off a blasting against Boise State, but it has to win two of its last three with Hawaii up next and at Air Force to close.
New Mexico has to win three of its last four games, but next week it has to go to Texas A&M and the trip to San Diego State to close. It’s going to be tough, but there’s no way to get to the post-season without a win this week.
The Lobos just can’t move the ball – they’re next-to-last in college football in third down conversions – and they can’t stop turning it over, coming off a nightmare of a performance against Wyoming.
Can they rise up at home? Utah State is wildly inconsistent, but it’s okay at time on the defensive front and it’s strong at taking the ball away. That should be enough to survive in a tough road win.
