Utah State vs New Mexico Game Preview
Why Utah State Will Win
The New Mexico offense still doesn’t work.
One score might just do it, and that’s not an exaggeration. The Lobos haven’t scored more than 17 points in any of the last nine games and only scored more than 14 in one of those – a loss to UNLV.
They’re last in the nation in scoring offense, total offense, and they’re about to make a big push in the final days to be dead last in passing after failing to get to 37 yards through the air in any of the last three games.
The Utah State defense is hardly special – it just got destroyed by Wyoming 44-17 in one of the weirdest under-that-radar blowouts of the year – but that’s not about to happen again.

Why New Mexico Will Win
Really, Utah State? What was that?
So good and so strong all through the second half of the season, the Aggies collapsed against Wyoming allowing 362 rushing yards and over 600 yards of total offense.
The New Mexico attack has shown a few moments of rushing ability, the secondary hasn’t been totally awful – it did a decent job against Boise State last week – and there’s just a wee bit of a pass rush to be a bother.
