I expected the Lobos to beat the Aggies on Saturday, but I didn't expect UNM to put up 66 points. UNM pounded their in-state rival 66-17. The 66 points is tied for the most ever against NMSU. UNM put up 541 yards rushing in the process (4th most in school history).
The Lobos now lead the nation in rushing. UNM is averaging 367.8 yards per game this year. UNM racked up over 1,000 yards rushing in the last two weeks combined. Granted, their last two opponents are the two worst teams in the country when it comes to run defense, but 1,000 yards? That doesn't happen with too many teams around the country.
UNM takes their show on the road this week as the Lobos travel to Wyoming.
New Mexico State is going to find it hard to pick up wins the rest of the way.
