Here Come the Aggies!
“Aggie Vision” was live last Saturday for the New Mexico State opener with Wyoming and the results were not good. A 29-7 loss for the Aggies which will be followed by a quick turnaround to Minneapolis playing the Thursday night game.
The Minnesota Golden Gophers are hosting the New Mexico State Aggies in college football action on Thursday evening. The game is scheduled for a 7:00 p.m. start time and it will be televised live on the Big Ten Network. The college football odds for the game have the Golden Gophers favored to pick up the victory here.
Minnesota is laying three touchdowns here against a New Mexico State team that already has a game under its belt. The Aggies looked terrible in a blowout home loss to Wyoming, struggling to move the chains at all. New Mexico State finished with 135 yards of total offense in the loss, two yards less than Wyoming threw for in the game.
The -9 yards on the ground were poor as well. If you can’t run the football you aren’t going to win football games and the Minnesota defense will look to continue to cause New Mexico State troubles in the run game.
Here’s the thing — Minnesota is favored by 21 points in a game with a total of fewer than 46 points. That lets us know the New Mexico State is really in a bad position despite already having played a game. The Golden Gophers won just five games wit PJ Fleck last season, two of those games in conference play.
