A pair of 1-0 MWC conference teams meet on Friday night as the Boise State Broncos head into New Mexico to take on the Lobos.
The Broncos put their undefeated record on the line here, while the Lobos try to get back over the .500 mark and inch closer to bowl eligibility.
Boise State Broncos
The Broncos have flown under the radar a bit, starting the season 4-0 and now get set for the drive toward a MWC Championship.
Boise State has knocked off UL-Lafayette, Washington State, Oregon State, and now Utah State. While the competition hasn’t been tops in the nation, all 4 are bowl potential teams.
The Broncos have leaned on their strong defensive front here in the first 4 games of the season. Boise State concedes just 72 yards per game on the ground, which ranks 5th in the nation.
This poses as an extremely good matchup, as the Lobos sit 2nd in the nation with 347 rush yards per game.
Expect Boise State to really stack the box here on almost every play and dare the Lobos to beat them through the air.
Offensively, Boise State has been a very consistent bunch. Averaging 475 yards per game, junior RB Jeremy McNichols has been the spark plug to this offense.
McNichols has 7 rushing touchdowns and has proven to be a threat with is hands, as he has 3 receiving touchdowns to add to his credit.
New Mexico Lobos
As already stated, the Lobos offensively strategy is no secret.
New Mexico attempted just 8 passes in their win over San Jose State last time out as they saw 8 different players get at least one rushing attempt.
The Lobos have inserted Lamar Jordan into the QB slot, as he fits in extremely well with their offensive style. Jordan has ran 28 times for 148 yards and works well with RB Teriyon Gipson in the backfield.
Gibson has 399 yards on the ground and has 5 touchdowns to his credit.
He’ll get a majority of the touches here on run plays, but with Jordan in the backfield next to him, it opens up many option reads for the Lobos to use.
With how good the Broncos front is, expect the Lobos to try and get to the edge more times than not, as running right at this Boise State defense up the middle just hasn’t been successful for the opposition.
