What’s Going To Happen
Can the Sam Houston State pass rush do enough to get into the New Mexico backfield?
The Bearkats had a whole slew of problems in their 6-5 season, but the defensive front was among the best in the FCS at getting into the backfield on a regular basis. Now it gets to go against a New Mexico offense that was among the worst in the FBS at keeping defenses from getting behind the line.
The Lobo offense gets back QB Tevaka Tuioti after his injury problems, but it’ll likely play several quarterbacks in an open audition to see who really is the one to lead the way before going to Notre Dam win two weeks.
Sam Houston State has enough returning experience and has just enough pop on both sides of the ball to be a problem. Can the D handle the sped-up Lobo attack? Not really, but it’ll make its sure of big plays to keep this from getting out of hand.
However, New Mexico has won its last four season openers against FCS opponents with ease. The Bearkats will make this interesting, though, and won’t let the Lobos pull away.
