New Mexico Lobos
The Lobos are becoming regulars within their own bowl game.
For the 2nd straight year and for the 4th time in the 11 year history of the Gildan New Mexico Bowl, the Lobos will stay on their home field and try to capture a bowl win.
Out of the Mountain West Conference, the Lobos are enduring of their best seasons in program history. A win here would be with Lobos 5th 9 win season in the 85 years the program has been running.

Gibson is averaging 121 yards per game, while Ownes is right there with 98.5. The two have accounted for 19 touchdowns this season.
New Mexico has gone 5-1 at home this season.
The Roadrunners have only been around for 6 seasons in the FBS and with a 33-14 win over Charlotte in their season finale, UTSA earned their first bowl bid for the program.
This UTSA team is no pushover by any means. They went 3-4 against bowl teams this year and took on both Arizona State and Texas A&M this year. They hung tough with both power 5 teams losing by 4 to ASU and 13 to A&M.
Like the Lobos, the Roadrunners rely heavily on their run game.
Jarveon Williams and Jalen Rhodes both are explosive playmakers who can break free and into the open field.
The duo has combined for 1903 yards and have a combined 18 touchdowns to their credit.
The Roadrunners like to use a lot of clock and will certainly try to control the pace here. With them essentially being the road team here, taking the crowd out of the game will be crucial.
