It’s the Rio Grande Rivalry on Saturday night at University Stadium in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The New Mexico State Aggies come to town to take on the New Mexico Lobos.
The two teams have matched up 102 times with New Mexico winning 70 of those games. In the last showdown however the Aggies came out ahead by a final score of 38-29.
New Mexico State Aggies
The New Mexico State Aggies had a tough match up to kick off their season.
They faced the Arizona State Sun Devils in Tempe and that is never a fun place to play, but they gave the Sun Devils everything they could handle, but came up just short losing by a final score of 37-31.
The offense really got rolling in that game putting up almost 550 yards. Senior quarterback Tyler Rodgers threw for 398 yards and three touchdowns.
He also had two really bad interceptions though, and without those the Aggies probably would have won the game. He needs to be better against the Lobos making better decisions with the football, and try not to have any costly turnovers.
On the defensive side of the ball they struggled against the Sun Devils, but that comes as no surprise as the Sun Devils offense usually is pretty good.
They gave up 400 yards total and 321 of those were through the air. Even though they came out with the loss in this game, they have to be feeling pretty confident coming into this game, because no one really even expected them to keep it close.
New Mexico Lobos
On the other side of this match up is the New Mexico Lobos who have been dominant over this series over the years, but are really needing a bounce back after they lost to the Aggies last year.
They had a cupcake to start off their season playing the Abilene Christian Wildcats and they treated it exactly how they had hoped, getting the first win under their belt.
After falling behind 7-0 the Lobos answered with 38 unanswered points. The Wildcats did end up scoring with 14 seconds left to go in the game, but by that point, the game was already decided.
The Lobos defense has struggled at times over the past couple years so it was good for the defense to really lock in and have a strong performance.
They only allowed 282 yards total and only eight of those were on the ground.
On the offensive side of the ball they had a very balanced attack. They had 222 passing yards and 259 rushing yards.
