  • WAC head coaches vote Aggies fourth
    LAS VEGAS, Nev. – The New Mexico State University Aggie football team has been selected to finish fourth in the 2012 Western Athletic Conference football coaches poll and fifth in the media polls, released Thursday at the WAC Football Media Days. The Aggies received 22 points in the coaches' poll and 95 points in the media poll. In 2011, the Aggies were picked to finish eighth by the coaches and in the media poll, NMSU finished the 2011 campaign with a 4-9 overall record and 2-5 conference record. This is the highest preseason ranking in both polls for the Aggies since they joined the WAC in 2005.
  • Lobo football picked to finish last
    LAS VEGAS, Nev. — Lobo coach Bob Davie addressed a portion of the Mountain West media Tuesday, saying "the past doesn't have to dictate the future." However, the past that saw the University of New Mexico win three games in three seasons surely was a consideration for the media at the Mountain West Football Media Day, which picked the Lobos to finish last in the 10-team MW race of 2012. "I think it's a factor that we haven't performed well in the past," said Lobo quarterback B.R. Holbrook.
