What to Know
The San Diego State Aztecs have had a week off and are no doubt ready to get back on the field. San Diego State and the New Mexico Lobos will face off in a Mountain West battle at 9 p.m. ET on Saturday at Dignity Health Sports Park. The Aztecs are out to keep their three-game home win streak alive.
San Diego State was the big favorite in their most recent contest, and for good reason. They put the hurt on the Towson Tigers with a sharp 48-21 win. The game was all but wrapped up at the end of the third, by which point San Diego State had established a 45-14 advantage.
Meanwhile, the oddsmakers predicted a rough matchup for New Mexico last week, and boy were they were right. They found themselves the reluctant recipients of an unpleasant 38-10 punch to the gut against the Air Force Falcons. New Mexico was in a tough position by the half, with the score already sitting at 24 to nothing. QB Terry Wilson wasn’t much of a difference maker for the Lobos; Wilson threw one interception with only 179 yards passing.
This next game looks promising for the Aztecs, who are favored by a full 19.5 points. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread as they are currently on a two-game streak of ATS wins.
San Diego State’s victory brought them up to 4-0 while New Mexico’s defeat pulled them down to 2-3. A pair of offensive stats to keep an eye on: San Diego State is stumbling into the game with the 225th fewest passing yards per game in the nation, having accrued only 127.8 on average. The Lobos have experienced some struggles of their own as they are 199th worst in the nation in yards per game, with only 300.6 on average. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
