Liberty (3-2) vs. New Mexico State (0-5) Game Preview
What’s Going To Happen
It’s the first of two meetings between the two – they hook up at Liberty in the season finale – and it should be relatively entertaining.
The New Mexico – Liberty game last week was supposed to be a shootout. Instead, it was a tough 17-10 win for the Flames. This week, though, will see the points.
The NMSU defense was able to hold firm and not get destroyed by Fresno State last week, but overall it’s having a whole lot of problems. It’s not getting to the quarterback, it’s not taking the ball away, and it can’t stop the run.
On the other side, the O can’t run even a little bit and has to rely on the passing attack to keep games from getting even uglier. At home, though, it’ll give the Flames a bit of a hard time.
It’s a wildly inconsistent Liberty team , but it doesn’t make a whole lot of mistakes and it does a nice job of moving the ball against the mediocre defenses on the slate. The pass defense is good enough to hold firm on the road in what should be an under-the-radar entertaining battle marked by bad placekicking and several missed chances on both sides.
