The New Mexico State Aggies look to get their first win at the Georgia Southern Eagles.
The New Mexico State Aggies haven’t been as bad as their 0-5 record makes it appear but they did bite off more then they could chew in a 52-3 loss at Mississippi in week six action. Ole Miss simply had too much firepower as they opened up a 31-3 halftime lead and never looked back. The boxscore tells the story with the Rebels amassing 665 yards however they chose while the Aggies were held to 239 yards and turned the ball over twice. NMSU had no rushing attack to speak of with less then 100 yards and about a 2 ½ yard average. The Aggies turned to quarterback Andrew Allen who was 10-14 for 55 yards and two interceptions and backup Nick Jeanty went 12-23 for 86 yards so the chains weren’t moving.
