The Troy Trojans will be heading to New Mexico as they will be looking for consecutive wins in their conference. After losing to Boise State Week 1, the Trojans have bounced back.
For New Mexico, they will be looking for back to back huge wins as they beat New Mexico and claimed the Rio Grande Trophy.
The Troy Trojans are back on the road as they have their first conference opener in the heat of New Mexico. The Trojans were not ready for Week 1 as they suffered a huge loss against Boise State.
However the Trojans bounced back very quickly as they took care of Alabama State.
For the Hornets they were beat down from the start as the Trojans defense took care of Alabama State. Tory held the Hornets to only 165 total yards and a low 12 first downs.
On the flip side, Troy tripled that production, as the offense racked up 607 yards and 34 first downs. With a run and offense threat last week, it was easy for the Trojans.
Quarterback Brandon Silvers connected on 32 of 40 passes for 345 yards.
However the only mistake of the game was when Silver threw a pick six that ruined the party for a bit.
With Silvers having a day on offense, his receivers also preformed off the charts. Receiver Damion Williams and Jordan Chunn totaled a combined 166 receiving yards, and Jamarius Henderson totaled 107 yards too.
New Mexico State Aggies
The New Mexico State Aggies are looking to win a huge conference game as they are now Rio Grande Trophy winners. Last week the Aggies had a huge upset against New Mexico as they finished the game winning 30-28.
The Aggies played well for most of the game, but they almost let a 30-5 lead slip right through their hands.
The Aggies had a 30-5 lead heading into the 4th quarter, as the Lobos almost pulled off a UCLA miracle comeback too. The Lobos had a 23-0 run in the 4th quarter as they were unable to succeed on the two point conversation with a minute left.

On the rushing game, running back Lary Rose II had 21 carries for 99 yards. Through the air, Tyler Rodgers connecting on 34 passes for 401 yards with four touchdowns.
