New Mexico Lobos
Dubbed “The Battle of I-75”, the New Mexico/New Mexico State rivalry historically is a balanced and hard-fought feud.
As of recent, the Lobos have dominated this series and they come in to this match-up ever more confident as they cruised past South Dakota 48-21 at home, last Thursday.
With wins against Utah State, Boise State and Air Force, the Lobos are poised to make a push for the Mountain West title as they have taken down all of the conference’s best teams in 2015.
With a pivotal journey to Rutgers awaiting the Lobos on September 17th, one must wonder if the Lobos are in fact looking past the Aggies.
New Mexico State Aggies
Dating back to last season, the Aggies have lost their last three. New Mexico State opened with a loss to UTEP on the road in El Paso, where they fell 38-22 where the Miners ran all over the Aggies defense.
This is especially bad news considering the Lobos enjoy running an option style offense that can punish opponents if defenses lose discipline.
Gazing back at recent results by the Aggies, New Mexico State does not have a signature victory to their name.
The Aggies defense has given up more than 34 points in each of their previous four fixtures, while their offense has failed to hold serve and even keep them competitive.
The Aggies need a paradigm shift and a win against their arch-rival can change the tide.

Free Week 2 NCAA Football Prediction
The previous two meetings of “The Battle of I-75” have been close ones.
Now, the Aggies get the Lobos at home in front of a home crowd which we would like to imagine would aid the Aggies in their struggle against this intrastate foe.
The Aggies have lost the last four, before winning the previous three in a row before that.
New Mexico finished 6-7 last year after losing in the New Mexico Bowl conveniently enough, the Lobos are never more vulnerable than they are now as their dominance and ascension may be used against them if they take NMSU lightly.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: New Mexico State +12.5
New Mexico when it is all said and done will likely win this game and move along but the pooch in this contest has covered in the last two. We suspect this may be the case yet again as the market has once again moved 1.5 points in favor of the Lobos.
The previous two meetings were settled by 12 points combined, so with this number offered alone in this contest plus half a point, we will have to fade the public. New Mexico State will make this a game.
