After three games on the road, New Mexico State is heading back home. The New Mexico State Aggies and the FIU Panthers will face off in a Conference USA battle at 9:00 p.m. ET on Wednesday at Aggie Memorial Stadium. Given that the pair suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this match.
Last Sunday, it was a hard-fought match, but New Mexico State had to settle for a 20-17 loss against Hawaii.
Nobody from New Mexico State had a standout game, but they still got scores from Star Thomas and Monte Watkins.
Meanwhile, FIU took a serious blow against Liberty last Saturday, falling 38-6.
Perhaps unsurprisingly given the score, the Panthers weren’t very productive on the ground and finished the game with only 64 rushing yards. They were smoked by their opponents in that department as Liberty rushed for 364.
New Mexico State’s defeat last Sunday dropped their record down to 2-3, while FIU’s dropped theirs down to 3-2.
