New Mexico Lobos at New Mexico State Aggies

Saturday October 9, 2010 8:00 PM EST

Line: New Mexico State -2.5

I would be shocked if anyone told me they were looking forward to this in state battle. New Mexico is 0-5 on the season while New Mexico State is 0-4. Both teams have not looked good on the season and this game only favors New Mexico State because they are the home team. New Mexico has played two ranked teams, at Oregon and vs Utah. New Mexico State is coming off a blowout loss 59-0 last week vs ranked Boise State.

This game should have points scored in it. The New Mexico defense have given up 52.6 points per game which ranks 120th in the nation. Remember that there are only 120 teams in division 1 football. Their offense hasn’t been that great neither only putting up 12.2 points per game. The only player worth of note for the Lobos is Freshman QB Tarean Austin. Austin has 394 yards with 2 TDs and 4 Ints. He has shown some ability to run with 100 yards on the ground and a TD.

With New Mexico  having the worst defense in the nation you would think New Mexico State would be a little better. This does not happen to be the case. The Aggies are ranked one spot better than the Lobos at 119th in the nation allowing 46 points a game. They have been horrible on defense and not much better on offense. Their offense ranks at 118th in the nation with 11.8 points per game. The one positive on offense has been Junior QB Matt Christian who has 633 yards 3 TDs and 2 Ints.

I have said before, with football picks, I like the better defense. When your dealing with the nations 2 worst defenses, you have to go with the home team. You would imagine that the Aggies would take advantage of being at home and be able to get their first victory. With winless teams you have to go with the home team by default.
