The Utah State Aggies and New Mexico Lobos face off on Friday in a college football showdown at University Stadium. Check out our Utah State vs New Mexico Prediction.
Utah State’s Offense Was A Problem
Utah State looks to become bowl eligible with a win in this game, but they are going to need the offense to be a whole better in this game. Against Boise State in the last game, the offense scored only 10 points and they ended up losing by 35 points. Cooper Legas completed 8 of his 12 passes for 128 yards, one touchdown, and zero interceptions. Running back Davon Booth is having a big season and he’s going to need to be a difference maker in this game. In the last game he finished with 12 carries for 125 yards.
New Mexico Looks to Finish Season Strong
New Mexico has a 4-7 record overall but they should have a bit of confidence heading into this game. New Mexico faced off against Fresno State and they gave up only 17 points on the way to the victory. Even though they won, quarterback play hasn’t been a strength, and he’s going to need to be better here. Dylan Hopkins completed 8 of his 18 passes for 124 yards, zero touchdowns, and two interceptions. New Mexico is averaging 26 points while their defense is giving up 34.3 points per game.
Shane’s Free Pick
New Mexico might not be a popular pick here, but I believe they can find success. Utah State only scored 10 points in the last game and they are going to really struggle to get the offense going again here. The Lobos are going to get better quarterback play here, and that is going to be the difference as New Mexico is going to get the job done here. Back New Mexico against the spread.
