The NCAA season is finally here and we have a Saturday filled with college football. In this game the Sam Houston State Bearkats make the trip to Dreamstyle Stadium to take on the New Mexico Lobos.
This is the first meeting since 2011 when the Bearkats won 48-45.
Sam Houston State Bearkats
The Sam Houston State Bearkats are a very good team, and they are a team that the New Mexico Lobos can not take lightly.
On offense they are loaded, led by running back Kyran Jackson and wide receiver Nathan Stewart who will probably be playing on Sunday’s.
On the defensive side they are a strong group, led by a secondary that is one of the best in the FCS. This is a team that is used to winning a lot of games, so at the end, if this game is close, they could have the advantage because of their confidence.
The one thing that can’t happen in this game, is they can’t fall behind early. This isn’t a team that is great at playing down.
New Mexico Lobos
On the other side of this matchup is the New Mexico Lobos who have a lot of question marks, but need to have some success or there could be a coaching change after this season.
The biggest question mark the Lobos have is who will start at quarterback, and we won’t know until they take the field.
Sheriron Jones, Tevaka Tuioti, Trae Hall, and Brandt Hughes are all on the roster, and according to Bob Davie any of them could start.
This is a must win game for the Lobos, especially if they want to make a bowl game. They schedule FCS games for one reason, to get an easy win and they need to treat it like that.

The Lobos need this game, but I don’t think this is going to be a cakewalk like they are hoping it will be.

I expect this to be a high scoring game with the Bearkats going blow for blow, I think the Lobos will win it late, but the Bearkats will cover the spread.
