New Mexico State (3-8) vs. Liberty (4-6) Game Preview
What’s Going To Happen
These two misfit parts did this a several weeks ago, with New Mexico State winning a fun 49-41 shootout. Now, on a three-game losing streak, Liberty needs this win and to beat Norfolk State to keep hopes alive to win six games.
New Mexico State is ending its season hoping for a fourth win. But when two are against one team, and one is against Alcorn State, and the other is against UTEP … yippee.
Neither team’s defense has done much lately, with Liberty getting hammered for 41 points or more in seven of the last eight games, while New Mexico State has allowed 41 or more in eight of the last ten.
But the Flames have a good enough ground game to crank up at least 200 yards against an Aggie defensive front that’s getting torched, allowing 300 yards or more five times with teams ripping off huge gashes. Liberty can do that.
It’ll be payback time for the earlier fun. NMSU QB Josh Adkins threw for 402 yards and four touchdowns in the earlier win, but at home, the Flames will generate more pressure and the offense will be far more effective.
Liberty was a -2 in turnover margin in early October. Flip that around, and add another 100 yards to the 153-yard rushing day.
