This game features the Lobos traveling to Tulsa to take on the struggling Golden Hurricane/
New Mexico is coming in after a loss to Boise St, while Tulsa lost a shootout to Toledo.
New Mexico Lobos
Coltin Gerhart struggled filling in for Lamar Jordan against Boise St, as he couldn’t get the offense going through the air. He was 7-13 for 67 yards with 1 touchdown and 1 interception.
He made plays with his legs and ran the ball 8 times for 50 yards. Going up against the Tulsa defensive front seven I expect him to have a few big plays but ultimately turnovers will cost the Lobos.
Daryl Chestnut has been held out of the end zone for the last two games, and didn’t get many opportunities to run the ball against the Broncos, carrying it 5 times for 28 yards.
When he gets his hands on the ball he is explosive, and is averaging over 5 yards per carry in the last two games.
After a good game against New Mexico St, Chris Davis was shut down by the Broncos secondary, catching just 2 passes for 22 yards. If New Mexico has any shot at an upset he needs to get at least 10 targets on the night.
The Lobos defense did a pretty good job slowing down the Boise St. offense, but couldn’t contain Jake Roh. He scored three touchdowns and was the key factor in the win.
For the Lobos to have any chance they will need to slow down the dynamic offensive weapons on the Tulsa offense, but it will be a tough task.
Tulsa Golden Hurricane
The Golden Hurricane were pegged by many to have the best offense in the AAC but have struggled out of the gate with a 1-2 record.
The running game could not be stopped by the Toledo Rockets, and QB Chad President was one of the main focal points of the attack.
He ran the ball 12 times for 130 yards and two touchdowns. If the running game can get things going early he should have similar numbers on the ground against the Lobos.
D’Angelo Brewer was the workhorse during the game, as he ran the ball a whopping 38 times for 152 yards and a score. I don’t expect him to get over 30 carries in this game but still look for him to break the century mark.
Shamari Brooks was the final piece in the three headed monster running game.
He rushed the ball 18 times for 141 yards and 3 scores. Another multi-touchdown performance should be a virtual guarantee against a poor Lobos front seven.
The Tulsa secondary was horrendous against Toledo, as they gave up 6 touchdown passes and over 450 yards through the air to Rockets QB Logan Woodside.
The defense should play much better and I expect them to give up less than half of that total to the Lobos.

4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Tulsa -11.5
The Tulsa running game should control the tempo and another 4 rushing touchdowns on the ground isn’t out of the question.
