We have reached week eight of the college football season and most of the teams are going to be playing a conference game this week.
There are four games on Friday night and two of those are Mountain West showdowns.
In this one the Colorado State Rams will make the trip to Albuquerque to take on the New Mexico Lobos. The Rams have won the last seven games played between the two teams.
Colorado State Rams
The Colorado State Rams have had a really nice season so far this year. They come into this game with a 4-2 record with the only losses coming against Alabama and Colorado.
In their last game though it got a bit dicey. They were playing Nevada, a team that only has one win on the season, and the Rams defense really struggled.
The offense luckily did enough to pick up the defense and they were able to win 44-42. A win is a win but when you are 25 point favorites coming into the game it’s a big concerning.
For the Rams it’s all about the offense. They come into this game averaging 34.9 points and over 522 yards of offense per game.
The Rams are led on offense by Senior quarterback Nick Stevens. He comes into this game having thrown for 2260 yards and 18 touchdowns.
For the Rams to win this game, they can’t let New Mexico stay around. They need to get out to a fast start and never make the Lobos think they have a chance to win this game.
New Mexico Lobos
On the other side of this match up is the New Mexico Lobos who have had a very disappointing season so far this year.
They come into this game with a 3-3 record, but that might be a little too kind for how they have actually played this year.
In their last game they absolutely got embarrassed. They took on the Fresno State Bulldogs and were two and a half point favorites coming into that game.
But the Lobos defense really struggled and the offense couldn’t get anything going and that led to a 38-0 embarrassment.
To win this game the offense is going to need to find a way to get going. The Rams are going to score and the Lobos are going to need to try and find a way to keep up.
