On Friday, the San Diego State Aztecs (2-3) will go up against the New Mexico Lobos (2-3) in a game that will feature two of the worst passing teams in the country. Last year, the Aztecs came away with a 35-30 home win over the Lobos.
Last Friday, San Diego State only scored one touchdown in their game against Fresno State and ended up losing 24-13 on the road. The Aztecs had just 84 passing yards in that loss and they turned the ball over three times.
One thing that the Aztecs have to fix moving forward is their passing game, which is averaging just 189 yards per game this season. Their best player this year has been running back Donnel Pumphrey, who is averaging 5.7 yards per carry and he has 561 yards with nine touchdowns already. Quarterback Quinn Kaehler has only completed 58.7 percent of his passes and he has thrown six interceptions.
New Mexico held UTSA to just three field goals last Saturday and came away with a 21-9 road victory. They rushed for 283 yards in that win while their defense picked off two passes.
The Lobos have the fifth-best rushing attack right now, averaging 322.4 yards per game through five games. Running back Jhurell Pressley is averaging 8.4 yards per carry this year for 387 yards and four touchdowns. Senior Crusoe Gongbay has added 354 rushing yards with three scores.
