New Mexico State (0-3) vs South Carolina State (0-2) Game Preview
Why South Carolina State Will Win
It’s hard to have too much fun playing Clemson after it loses – the Bulldogs collected their paycheck in the 49-3 game – but the offense worked in a fun 42-41 loss to Alabama A&M.
The attack has enough of a balance to matter against a New Mexico State defense that’s not doing anything against the run. Worse yet, the offensive side can’t stop screwing up.
It’s bad enough to not have any running game, but the turnovers keep shooting the team in the foot.
Why New Mexico State Will Win
There have been signs of life.
The Aggie offense was horrible in the opener against UTEP, but the passing attack pushed the San Diego State D a bit and the attack did enough to make New Mexico work.
South Carolina State is miserable on third downs. New Mexico State has to use this game to start going on a few decent, sustained drives, and the pass rush has to show up to get the D off the field.
What’s Going To Happen
Can the New Mexico State passing game be enough to overcome a slew of other problems?
South Carolina State’s secondary has been awful, but it’ll pick off a few passes to stay in this through the second half. Even so, NMSU will get a win – even if it’s not pretty.
