Rutgers will look to avoid playing from behind here as they welcome in New Mexico for a non conference battle on Saturday.
Rutgers enters play 1-1, while the Lobos look to rebound from a tough loss last week to New Mexico State.
New Mexico Lobos
The Lobos took on in state rival New Mexico State, a game that went back and forth throughout.
In the end, it was the Lobos who came up on the short end 32-31. The loss not only hurt them as far as their record is concerned, but it also saw them lose 2 key players heading into this one against Rutgers.
New Mexico will be without their leading rusher Teriyon Gipson and top defensive player Dakota Cox. Both will miss this one because of concussion protocol.
Running wise, the Lobos still have a lot of options to work with. Look for Tyrone Owens to get a lot of touches here as he will step in as the team’s #1 on the depth chart.
Don’t discount QB Austin Apodaca either. He has the ability to get outside and turn it up field.
Rutgers Scarlet Knights
The Scarlet Knights will try to stop a trend of allowing teams to get on them early.
Rutgers has fallen behind by 24 to Washington and 14 to FCS opponent Howard.
While they couldn’t dig themselves out of Week 1’s hole, they managed to fight back against Howard to grab not only their first win of the season, but also head coach Chris Ash’s first win.
There has been some speculation of a QB change coming too. Current starter, Chris Laviano, continues to struggle.
This game is going to be important for him as Chris Ash was first to say they will evaluate the QB position like every other one.
Laviano needs some production here against New Mexico as he hasn’t shown much through his first couple games of the season.

Free Week 3 NCAA Football Prediction
Laying points with Rutgers is scary. The team doesn’t have much offensively and with the QB situation a little bit foggy, there could be some issues come Saturday if Rutgers goes down early.
