What there is to know
This Saturday, the New Mexico State Aggies hope to fill the gaps in a defense that has allowed an average of 37.14 points per game. They will face the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors at 11:59 p.m. ET on Saturday at the Clarence TC Ching Complex after a week off. Since these two teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a bit of extra motivation going into this game.
The Aggies might not have won anyway, but with 103 yards lost to penalties, they really shot themselves in the foot two weeks ago. They suffered a grim 55-28 loss to the Nevada Wolf Pack. New Mexico State was in a difficult position at halftime, already at 31-7. QB Jonah Johnson put in a good effort for the losing team as he landed three touchdowns and 425 yards on 62 attempts in addition to a rushing touchdown.
Meanwhile, Hawaii finished well behind Nevada when they played last week, losing 34-17. Hawaii’s loss came despite a quality game from RB Dae Dae Hunter, who rushed for two touchdowns and 174 yards on eight carries. Hunter took center stage with an 81-yard TD in the second quarter.
The state of New Mexico is clearly the underdog, so they hope it’s the size of the fight that determines this one. They haven’t treated the fans well this season, but they are at least 4-2 ATS.
The losses put New Mexico State 1-6 and the Rainbow Warriors 3-4. The Aggies are 1-4 after losses this season, Hawaii 2-1.
