The University of New Mexico Lobo football team will take on the Wyoming Cowboys in a Mountain West contest Saturday afternoon.
The Lobos, who haven’t had a road game in about a month, will travel to Laramie for the Mountain West meeting. The Cowboys have won three of their last four games against the Lobos, including a 28-23 victory in Albuquerque last season.
UNM is 0-1 in Mountain West play (2-3 overall), but should have momentum going in after a crushing 66-17 victory over its in-state rival New Mexico State University last week.
UNM gained 541 yards on the ground against the Aggies, a haul that made the Lobos the top rushing team in the country, averaging 367.8 yards per game.
Wyoming (3-2, 1-0 in MW play), however, is also a very good offensive team. The Cowboys have averaged 516.2 yards per game, led by Brett Smith, who has a 64.8 percent completion percentage this season.
The Lobos dropped their MW opener Sept. 28 at home against UNLV. The Cowboys, meanwhile, topped Air Force 56-23 Sept. 21 in Colorado Springs. In their most recent outing, however, the Cowboys dropped a 42-21 decision at Texas State.
Aggies still looking for first win of year
