New Mexico (2-2) vs. San Jose State (2-2) Game Preview
Why New Mexico Will Win
The Spartans still are struggling way too much defensively.
The team overall might be playing better, but it’s not getting off the field easily enough, and it’s not doing anything to stop the run. The New Mexico offense might not be anything special, and it’s certainly not consistent, but it’s good enough on the ground to come up with a big day.
It’s a quick-hitting ground attack that pushed past 200 yards in each of the last three games. An array of parts are getting the job done, and in San Jose, they should be able to blow past a defensive front that couldn’t handle Air Force and its 382 yards, and struggle against the Tulsa O.
Why San Jose State Will Win
New Mexico’s defense is even worse.
The secondary has been torn to shreds, with the 306 yards given up to Liberty last week the best day the D has had so far. The Lobos are allowing a nation-worst 380 yards per games with a grand total of one one interception.
This is where veteran QB Josh Love comes in. He might have struggles gains Air Force, but he was brilliant in the shocking win over Arkansas and has been relatively mistake-free so far.
New Mexico doesn’t have any pass rush to worry about, the offense turns it over way too often, and the passing game isn’t there to keep up if the ground game isn’t rolling.
What’s Going To Happen
San Jose State doesn’t turn the ball over, and New Mexico does.
The Lobos will get things working from time to time on the ground, but they’ll also screw up way too often. The Spartans will be a +3 in turnover margin, capitalizing on all of them to come up with a nice nationally televised home win on the way to a shocking 3-2 start.
