THE TRENDS

For Utah State … With a win, the Aggies would be guaranteed to finish the season above .500. It would mark the third time in the last four years that they have finished above that mark.

For New Mexico State … These Aggies have not won more than three games in a season since tallying seven in 2017. Coincidentally, they beat Utah State that season 26-20 in overtime in the Arizona Bowl.

WHAT TO WATCH FOR

All indications are that Utah State should roll over New Mexico State quite easily. How quickly can the road team put things out of reach, and can it leave with no injuries?

KEY PLAYER

Calvin Tyler Jr., RB, Utah State: Utah State’s leading rusher on the season has missed the past two games because of a hand injury, but head coach Blake Anderson said this week that he expects him to be able to play Saturday.

QUOTABLE

“The challenge for us this week is really just to continue to improve and travel well against an opponent that I would expect we’ll be favored to beat, and that’s an environment we haven’t been in a lot. We’ll see how we handle it.” — Utah State head coach Blake Anderson

“Offensively, we’re playing winning football. We’re really playing well. We just got some ways to go on the defensive side.” — New Mexico State head coach Doug Martin

NEXT UP

Utah State will travel to San Jose State next week to get back into Mountain West Conference play, while New Mexico will have a little road date with the Alabama Crimson Tide.
