Both of these teams have been very bad this season, so this will most likely be an ugly game. New Mexico State has some injury problems, and their defense has been one of the worst in the country. UL-Monroe hasn’t won a conference game yet this season and has lost 10 games in a row. I am taking New Mexico State in this one.
