The New Mexico Lobos and Wyoming Cowboys meet Saturday in college football action at War Memorial Stadium.
The New Mexico Lobos need a victory here to snap a three-game losing streak. The New Mexico Lobos have lost each of their last six road games. Tevaka Tuioti is completing 49.4 percent of his passes for 660 yards, four touchdowns and four interceptions. Sheriron Jones and Tuioti have combined for six touchdowns and 11 interceptions this season. Marcus Williams and Jordan Kress have combined for 463 receiving yards and three touchdowns while Aaron Molina has eight receptions. The New Mexico Lobos ground game is averaging 219.5 yards per contest, and Ahmari Davis leads the way with 457 yards and four touchdowns. Defensively, New Mexico is allowing 38.8 points and 519.8 yards per game. Alex Hart leads the New Mexico Lobos with 41 tackles, Jacobi Hearn has three sacks and Jerrick Reed II has one interception.
The Wyoming Cowboys look for another victory to build on their surprising 4-2 record. The Wyoming Cowboys have won each of their last five home games. Sean Chambers is completing 38.1 percent of his passes for 671 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions. Chambers has four touchdown passes in his last three games. Austin Conway and Raghib Ismail Jr. have combined for 250 receiving yards and one touchdown while Gunner Gentry has three receptions. The Wyoming Cowboys ground game is averaging 233 yards per contest, and Chambers leads the way with 430 yards and eight touchdowns. Defensively, Wyoming is allowing 21.3 points and 398.3 yards per game. Alijah Halliburton leads the Wyoming Cowboys with 62 tackles, Solomon Byrd has 3.5 sacks and Cassh Maluia has two interceptions.
The Lobos are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games on turf, 1-5 ATS in their last 6 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Cowboys are 5-0 ATS vs. a team with a losing record, 14-4 ATS in their last 18 games in October and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Lobos are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 meetings in Wyoming and the favorite is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings. The under is 22-10-1 in Cowboys last 33 games overall. The under is 4-0 in Lobos last 4 conference games.
The New Mexico Lobos have failed to cover seven of their last nine games as a double-digit underdog. The Wyoming Cowboys have failed to cover nine of their last 11 games as a double-digit favorite. New Mexico has been god awful defensively this season, but the Lobos are losing games by an average of 10.6 points during their three-game winning streak, so they're competing despite the issues. Outside of a blowout win over UNLV, the Wyoming Cowboys have been in nothing but close games this season and don't cover as big favorites often. I don't want to back New Mexico as much as the next guy, but I certainly don't want to eat three touchdowns with the Cowboys.
