[2:03 PM] Texas San Antonio @ New Mexico


Yes: At least 1 team scores 40+ pts

No: Neither team scores 40+ pts


The Roadrunners rely heavily on their 1-2 rushing punch of senior Jarveon Williams, the program’s all-time leading ground gainer, and sophomore Jalen Rhodes, who have combined for 1,903 yards from scrimmage and 18 touchdowns this season.

UTSA’s passing attack is average all around under junior quarterback Dalton Strum, who averages 192.9 yards of total offense per game and has accounted for 22 total TDs with junior wide receivers Josh Stewart (36 receptions-682 yards-five TDs) and Kerry Thomas Jr. (31-510-8) serving as his top targets. Defensively, the Roadrunners ranked third in C-USA with an average of 28.3 points and fourth with an average of 400 yards allowed per game.

On the legs of running backs Teriyon Gibson (120.9 yards per game, 12 TDs) and Tyrone Owens (98.5 yards, seven TDs), the Lobos and their option attack lead the FBS in all the major rushing categories, including total yards (4,331), yards per game (360.9) and yards per carry (6.81). Quarterbacks Lamar Jordan and Austin Apodaca have shared time, but the former is the more potent rushing threat with 658 yards and three TDs on the ground for New Mexico, which averaged a Mountain West-best 37.8 points per outing and is fewer than 100 yards away from setting a school single-season record for total offense.

Defensive linemen Nik D’Avanzo (60 total tackles) and Garrett Hughes (team-most 6.5 sacks) were All-Mountain West second-team selections and lead a unit which allows 32.4 points and 397.3 yards per game.
