Colorado State Rams vs New Mexico Lobos 10/11/2019
Colorado State Rams
The Colorado State Rams remain dangerous despite their 1-5 record. They have shown their competitive spirit the past three weeks, falling less than two touchdowns per outing. It has been a difficult road to start the 2019 season, their only win coming against Colorado. A second win is within reach since they will be competing in a place where they are undefeated. A lot of that will depend on key players such as Patrick O’Brien. The quarterback connected 19 out of 30 throws for 217 yards against the San Diego State Aztecs. RB Marcus McElroy and WR Dante Wright also need to do their part if they are to check their slide. They are likely to miss two players. Collin Hill is out for the season with an ACL injury while Warren Jackson remains questionable.
Players to watch: Patrick O’Brien QB 73 CMP 123 ATT 974 YDS 59.3 CMP% 7.9 AVG 75 LNG 3 TD 2 INT; Marvin Kinsey Jr. RB 96 ATT 618 YDS 6.4 AVG 75 LNG; Marcus Elroy RB 30 ATT 121 YDS 4 AVG 34 LNG; Dwight Wright WR 32 REC 487 YDS 15.2 AVG 75 LNG; Warren Jackson WR 31 REC 327 YDS 10.5 AVG 29 LNG
New Mexico Lobos
Homecourt advantage may not be enough to give the Lobos better chances against the Rams. They dropped their last two games against decent teams and are expected to have a tough time against Colorado. They have bucked on running plays with Ahmari Davis carrying the ball 93 times for 457 yards and four touchdowns. It remains to be seen if he can get the same success against a tough Colorado State defense. Regardless, New Mexico needs to show its desire to run the ball. That task will arguably be hard considering the Lobos are have lost some players for the season. Elijah Lily, Aaron Blackwell, and Brandt Hughes have been taken out with respective injuries. Even if New Mexico is able to come up with something, the Rams are expected to be prepared. Colorado has played better against competitive teams, meaning more bad news for the Lobos this Friday.
Players to watch: Tevaka Tuioti QB 38 CMP 77 ATT 660 YDS 49.4 CMP% 8.6 AVG 62 LNG 4 TD 4 INT; Ahmari Davis RB 93 ATT 457 YDS 4.9 AVG 53 LNG; Bryson Carroll RB 33 ATT 196 YDS 5.9 AVG 47 LNG; Jordan Kress WR 6 REC 215 YDS 35.8 AVG 55 LNG; Marcus Williams TE 9 REC 190 YDS 21.1 AVG 42 LNG
