New Mexico Lobos at Colorado State Rams

Saturday October 30, 2010 6:00 PM EST

Line: Colorado State -16

This MWC game features two teams scrapping on the bottom of the conference. The story coming into this game will be the defeated Lobos. They have yet to win a football game and will be looking to get it done on the road vs a conference opponent.

Stats to consider:

New Mexico Lobos:

  • New Mexico is 0-7 with an 0-3 MWC record.
  • They are 0-3 on the road and only one of those cam within 16 points.
  • Points against a game: 44.1 (120th)
  • Points for a game: 13.6 (117th)
  • Rushing yards a game: 89.6 (112th)
  • Passing yards a game: 179 (90th)

Colorado State Rams:

  • The Rams are 2-6 with a 1-3 MWC record.
  • They are 2-2 at home.
  • Points against a game: 35.6 (108th)
  • Points for a game: 16.4 (111th)
  • Rushing yards a game: 106.6 (103rd)
  • Passing yards a game: 218.9 (62nd)

What to watch for:

  • For the Lobos, this is their easiest opponent the rest of the way. If they want to get a victory, it has to be now because they won’t have a better chance than this week.
  • After missing 4 games, Sophomore QB B.R. Holbrook was back in the lineup last week. He was 11-27 with 124 yards a TD and an Int. Holbrook only has 2 TDs in 3 games this season and will need to step it up.
  • For the Rams, the game rides on the back of Freshman QB Pete Thomas who has 1,751 yards 8 TDs and 9 Ints on the season.
  • After a tough 59-6 loss at Utah last week, the Rams will need some help out of their running game which currently ranks outside the top 100. They only put up 53 yards on the ground last week and that will need to improve if they don’t want to be upset by a very poor Lobos team.

Yes, the line is large in this game making it a tougher sports pick. The fact that New Mexico has done nothing of note this season makes it a bit more easy. They haven’t been able to contain anybody and have struggled putting up points themselves. They did look good last week at San Diego State, but they won’t be as close to home at Colorado State where the Rams generally perform well.
