We have reached week three of the college football season and there are a few rivalry games this weekend. In this one it’s the Rio Grande Rivalry when the New Mexico Lobos make the trip to Aggie Memorial Stadium to take on the New Mexico State Aggies.
The Aggies have won the last two games played between the two teams including last year when they came out ahead 30-28.
New Mexico Lobos
The New Mexico Lobos have played two completely different teams in the first two weeks and it has shown with the results on the field.
In the first game they took on Incarnate Word an FCS level team and they had no issue running up the score winning 62-30.
In their last game they took on a very tough Wisconsin Badgers team, one of the best in the country and the defense couldn’t hold up losing 45-14.
They actually played pretty well in the first half and had a lead at one point but as the game wore on the big offensive linemen of the Badgers was too much and that led to the loss.
The Lobos will be playing with their backup quarterback after Tevaka Tuioti left the last game with an undisclosed injury.
That means Sheriron Jones will get the start who has thrown for 101 yards so far this year with two touchdowns and two intereptions.
New Mexico State Aggies
On the other side of this matchup is the New Mexico State Aggies who have played three games so far this year and have lost all three of them.
The defense hasn’t been good and the offense has been worse scoring a total of 30 points in the three games. A big reason for the offensive struggles has been the rush game which is only averaging 46 yards per game.
On the defensive side of the ball they are 45.7 points per game and in their last game against Utah State they gave up 60 points.
To win this game they need to get up for the game and get out to a fast start. The offense needs to find some sort of traction early.
They need to try and establish some sort of run game to keep the Lobos defense off balance. If the Lobos can key on the pass this is going to be a long night.
