What to Know
San Diego State will take on New Mexico State at 8 p.m. ET on Saturday at Aggie Memorial Stadium. Coming off of a win even when the odds were against them, San Diego State has to be feeling especially confident now that the spread is in their favor.
The Aztecs were able to grind out a solid win over UCLA last week, winning 23-14. Kobe Smith and Ryan Agnew were among the main playmakers for San Diego State as the former caught 7 passes for 131 yards and 1 touchdown and the latter passed for 293 yards and 1 touchdown.
Meanwhile, New Mexico State took a serious blow against Alabama, falling 10-62. This makes it the second defeat in a row for New Mexico State.
San Diego State’s victory lifted them to 2-0 while New Mexico State’s loss dropped them down to 0-2. New Mexico State is second worst in the nation in touchdowns allowed, with 15 on the season. But the Aztecs are stumbling into the contest with the sixth fewest overall touchdowns in the nation, having accrued only 2 on the season. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
