What to Know
The San Diego State Aztecs will face off against the New Mexico State Aggies at 10:30 p.m. ET Saturday at Dignity Health Sports Park. The Aztecs struggled last year, ending up 4-4. New Mexico State was 1-1 last season and is coming off of a 30-3 loss against the UTEP Miners last week.
A pair of last-season defensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: San Diego State was third best in the nation in yards allowed per game, finishing the 2020 season giving up only 283.5 on average. Less enviably, New Mexico State ranked second worst in the nation with respect to passing yards allowed per game last year, where the squad gave up 312.5 on average. The good news for New Mexico State, of course, is that these forces working against them might not carry over into the new season.
San Diego State is the favorite in this one, with an expected 31-point (!) margin of victory. It would take nothing short of a miracle for the Aggies to pull off a victory, but maybe they can at least keep the Aztecs from covering the spread.
