The New Mexico State Aggies travel to the Palouse to take on the Washington State Cougars in Week 1 action in college football.
All the practices and scrimmages are over, this time it counts, as both teams will be trying to start their season off with a win.
But let’s be honest.
There is only one team that will be on the field at Martin Stadium on Saturday that deserves to win this football game, and that is the Washington State Cougars. This game will be a blowout.
New Mexico State Aggies
If this matchup looks bad to Aggies fans, just wait until next week when you have to play at Alabama. But first things first, New Mexico State doesn’t stand a chance in this game in Pullman.
The Aggies do have QB Josh Adkins returning for another year, along with five receivers, who can give the Cougars defense fits. But that won’t be enough for them to make this a close game, though they could get lucky and burn the Cougars deep once or twice in this one
Defensively, the Aggies are returning nearly everybody, but will still have a hard time containing a Mike Leach style offense that likes to air it out for the majority of its time on offense.
The rush defense isn’t that good either, so this could end up being a very long evening for the Aggies defenders.
Washington State Cougars
Is this the year the Cougars finally make their way into the spotlight and out from under shadows of their in-state counterparts (Washington Huskies) and onto the national stage? They have a couple gimme games to start the season, which is always nice when it comes to this dog eat dog college football society that we live in.
The Cougars are going with red shirt senior Anthony Gordon at QB in week one, but we could very well see Gage Gubrud get some action before its all said and done here. The Cougars should be able to run all over the Aggies defense Saturday night, as a 700 yard offensive output is not out of reach for this team against a team that is only projected to win one game all year.
Last year the Cougars led the Pac-12 in sacks, and they should be able to get a good jump on the rest of the conference on Saturday, as the Aggies offensive line had a very hard time containing defenses last season, and they are returning most of that starting line this year.

This isn’t going to be a close game at all. In fact, it could be over by the end of the first quarter.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Washington State – 32
I think the Aggies will score, but it may not be until late in the game, when it’s already way too far out of reach. Washington State is on the verge of becoming a powerhouse in the Pac-12, and if they have a hiccup here against New Mexico State, their season will be all but lost.
Take Washington State to win this game at home, and for the Cougars to cover the spread.
