The Fresno State Bulldogs will play the New Mexico Lobos in a Mountain West Conference Game on Saturday night at University Stadium in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

The Fresno State Bulldogs are 2-4 (1-1) this season after they defeated San Jose State by a score of 17-10 in their last game. Fresno State trailed 10-7 at halftime, but was able to outscore SJSU 10-0 in the second half for the win. The Fresno State offense is averaging 22.5 points per game with 252.5 passing yards per game and 116.7 rushing yards per game. Jake Haener is questionable with an injury for this game. If Haener cannot play, Logan Fife will start at quarterback, who has thrown for 661 yards, one touchdown, and five interceptions for the Bulldogs this season. Jordan Mims has rushed for 480 yards and six scores, while Jalen Moreno-Cropper has caught 36 passes for 343 yards for Fresno State. The Fresno State defense is giving up 26 points per game and 386.3 yards per game.

The New Mexico Lobos are 2-5 (0-3) this season after they lost to New Mexico State by a score of 21-9 in their last game. New Mexico outgained New Mexico State, but settled for field goals, while NMSU scored three touchdowns. The New Mexico offense is averaging 17.9 points per game with 123.4 passing yards per game and 137.6 rushing yards per game. Miles Kendrick has thrown for 849 yards, three touchdowns, and seven interceptions, while also rushing for 148 yards and three touchdowns for the Lobos this season. Nathaniel Jones has rushed for 280 yards and one touchdown, while Geordon Porter has caught 16 passes for 263 yards and two scores for New Mexico. The New Mexico defense is allowing 22.6 points per game and 329.6 yards per game.

Fresno State is 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS win. The under is 5-2 in Fresno State’s last 7 road games. New Mexico is 2-7-1 ATS in their last 10 home games and 7-20 ATS in their last 27 October games. The under is 10-4 in New Mexico’s last 14 games. The under is 4-1 in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings.

New Mexico did not look good in their last game and lost to a bad New Mexico State team. Fresno State has struggled without their star quarterback, but was able to get a win last week. If Haener plays, I like Fresno State to win in a blowout, but since we don’t know his status, I will take New Mexico with the points.
