The Texas A&M Aggies meet the New Mexico Lobos in week 3 college football action from Kyle Field on Saturday afternoon.
The New Mexico Lobos will look to build off of a 34-25 win over New Mexico State in their last game. Terry Wilson has thrown for 174 yards and 3 touchdowns on 76.9% passing while Aaron Dumas leads the Lobos in rushing with 57 rushing yards on 15 carries. Keyonta Lamar leads the Lobos in receiving with 72 receiving yards and a touchdown while Luke Wysong has a team-high 6 receptions this season. Defensively, Tavian Combs leads the Aggies with 17 total tackles including a team-high 9 solo tackles this season.
The Texas A&M Aggies will look to build on their 10-7 win over Colorado in their last game. Haynes King has thrown for 300 yards, 2 touchdowns and 3 interceptions on 62.9% passing while Zach Calcedo has 183 passing hards with 1 touchdown and a pick as well. Devon Achana has a team-high 174 rushing yards and both of the rushing TDs for the Aggies this year while Isaiah Spiller has 133 rushing yards this season. Ainias Smith leads the Aggies’ receiving group with 11 catches for 119 receiving yards and a pair of touchdowns while Jalen Wydermyer has 107 receiving yards this season. On defense, Antonio Johnson leads the Aggies with 15 solo tackles while Leon O’Neal Jr. has a pair of interceptions.
New Mexico is 12-26 ATS in their last 38 games overall and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as an underdog while the over is 9-2 in their last 11 non-conference games. Texas A&M is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games against the Mountain West while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 September games.
This feels like a bit of a steep price for a Texas A&M team that barely got by the Colorado Buffaloes, but New Mexico barely got by a New Mexico State team that’s amongst the worst in all of college football. Sure it was a rivalry game, and the Lobos should never have been favored that heavily to begin with, but that doesn’t lend itself to a solid showing here. I think the Lobos are in deep trouble. Give me the Aggies here.
