The New Mexico Lobos will play the Colorado State Rams in a Mountain West Game on Friday afternoon at Canvas Stadium in Fort Collins, Colorado.

The New Mexico Lobos are 2-9 (0-7) this season after they lost to San Diego State by a score of 34-10 in their last game. New Mexico was out gained by a total of 459-209 and went 0-11 on third down attempts in the loss. The New Mexico offense is averaging 14.3 points per game with 108.8 passing yards per game and 127.9 rushing yards per game. CJ Montes started last week at quarterback for New Mexico and has thrown for 112 yards and one interception this season. Nathaniel Jones has rushed for 534 yards and two touchdowns, while Geordon Porter has caught 22 passes for 312 yards and two scores for New Mexico. The New Mexico defense is giving up 26.8 points per game and 366.5 yards per game.

The Colorado State Rams are 2-9 (2-5) this season after they lost to Air Force by a score of 24-12 in their last game. Colorado State only gained 244 total yards and went 2-9 on third down attempts in the loss. The Colorado State offense is averaging 12.8 points per game with 193.7 passing yards per game and 90.3 rushing yards per game. Clay Millen has thrown for 1,696 yards, eight touchdowns, and six interceptions for the Rams this season. Avery Morrow has rushed for 772 yards and four scores, while Tory Horton has caught 61 passes for 1,000 yards and seven touchdowns for Colorado State. The Colorado State defense is allowing 29.4 points per game and 375.1 yards per game.

New Mexico is 16-34-1 ATS in their last 51 conference games and 6-21 ATS in their last 27 November games. The under is 9-2 in New Mexico’s last 11 road games. Colorado State is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 home games. The under is 5-0 in Colorado State’s last 5 home games. The under is 4-0 in these two teams last 4 head to head meetings.

This is a matchup between two Mountain West teams that have really struggled this season. New Mexico is still searching for their first conference win, while Colorado State has won two conference games, but has lost their last four games. Both of these offenses are terrible, but are accompanied by defenses that aren’t much better. I am going to take New Mexico in this game because 7.5 points is a lot of points between two bad teams.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
