The New Mexico State Aggies and Wisconsin Badgers meet Saturday in week 3 college football action at Camp Randall Stadium. The New Mexico State Aggies look to avoid their first 0-4 start since the 2019 season. The Wisconsin Badgers look to get a game above a .500 record.
The New Mexico State Aggies haven’t won a home game since September 2018. Gavin Frakes is completing 48 percent of his passes for 197 yards, 1 touchdown and 3 interceptions. Justice Powers and Jordin Parker have combined for 167 receiving yards on 7 catches, while Kordell David has 7 receptions. The New Mexico State Aggies ground game is averaging 108.3 yards per contest, and Diego Pavia leads the way with 119 yards and 2 touchdowns. Defensively, New Mexico State is allowing 27 points and 349.7 yards per game. Bryce Jackson leads the New Mexico State Aggies with 22 tackles, Lazarus Williams has 2 sacks and Linwood Crump has 1 pass deflection.
The Wisconsin Badgers have won 5 of their last 6 home games. Graham Mertz is completing 68.1 percent of his passes for 446 yards, 3 touchdowns and 1 interception.

The Aggies are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games in September and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Badgers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 non-conference games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 5-2 in Aggies last 7 games overall. The under is 4-0 in Badgers last 4 games overall.
I'm concerned about a possible look ahead spot for the Wisconsin Badgers with Ohio State on deck next week. This could be a win and get out situation for Wisconsin. However, the New Mexico State Aggies are just an awful football team that has shown zero life offensively, scoring a combined 25 points through 3 games. It's fair to say Wisconsin is the best team New Mexico State has seen yet. Lot of points and a look ahead spot, but it's the Badgers or pass for me.
