The New Mexico Lobos will travel to Jonah Field at War Memorial Stadium to take on the Wyoming Cowboys this Saturday afternoon.

The New Mexico Lobos lost their 5th straight game and dropped to 2-5 on the season after being defeated by the Colorado State Rams, 36-7, this past Saturday New Mexico had no answers on the offensive end against the Colorado State defense and could not fight back after a 2-yard TD run by the Rams David Bailey gave the Rams a 20-7 lead early in the 3rd quarter. New Mexico was outgained by Colorado State by a 452-69 margin and lost the turnover battle by a 3-0 margin in the loss.

The Lobos are 16-35 ATS in their last 51 games overall and just 3-13 ATS in their last 16 road games. The Cowboys are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a straight up loss.

Wyoming has had some issues scoring the football as of late, however, their issues have been largely due to turnovers which I’m not so concerned about New Mexico forcing. New Mexico has one of the worst offenses in all of College Football as they rank 129th in scoring offense & 130th in total offense and should have a tough time finding any success offensively on the road against an above average Wyoming defense. This is a large spread, however, the Cowboys have shown earlier this season that they can put points on the board and as I just don’t see New Mexico scoring more than 10 points in this one, I think Wyoming does enough to cover this large spread. Good Luck!
