1. College Football News Preview 2020: New Mexico State Aggies Win Total Prediction, What Will Happen
God bless New Mexico State head coach Doug Martin.
No one has done more to fight the good fight, dealing with seven seasons at Kent State before trying to turn around the even more impossible New Mexico State program. He got the 7-6 campaign with a bowl win in 2017 – the only winning season in his 14-year career – and he keeps on plugging away to try making Aggie football consistently okay.
The skill players are undergoing an overhaul, and the defense has to go from miserable to non-miserable, but this season is about getting the pieces in place to potentially come back loaded with veterans for 2021.
In this strangest of off-seasons, all bets are off when it comes to the schedule depending on what the conferences all do. There’s a chance a whole slew of places come calling at the last second, and the Aggies have to be ready.
All of a sudden, life as an independent is a problem.
If most of the schedule goes off close to normal, there are a slew of games the team can at least be competitive in, with the goal to get to four wins for the second time since 2011.
Martin and New Mexico State are owed a little bit of consistent success.
