The breakdown of the New Mexico Lobos is the last of the four Non-Conference match-ups all of which will be re-matches from last season. UTSA was 1-3 last year against non-conference teams and ended their season with a 6-2 conference record just barely missing out on the Conference USA Championship game.

“With any improvement to last year's record against non-conference teams, look for UTSA to get their chance at a 10 win season this year and a shot at the Conference Championship”.

Last year the Roadrunner's started out the season with what was the biggest UTSA victory for the young program to date when they beat the New Mexico Lobos 21-13. The underdog Roadrunners were on the road and down by 13 early but managed to get things going late in the second to give them some momentum for the second half and eventually shutdown the supposed “awesome” Lobo running attack to give them and Coach Davie a bad start to be a lousy 3-9 season. 

THE LOBOS

This year the Lobos' bring back 10 starters total. Long gone is top running back Kasey Carrier. QB Cole Gautsche returns as their leading rusher on the team as well as their QB. Not listed as a starter is WR Carlos Wiggins 5'8'' 180 who is nominated for the College Football Performance Award Trophy as a kick returner. Three year starter, Center Lamar Bratton is listed as a candidate on the Dave Rimington Award Fall Watch List which is given to the top offensive center in the country.

Coach Davie enters his 3rd year with a 7-18 record as Head Coach and has his work cut out for him as he continues the rebuilding process at New Mexico University.

Here is a list of Offensive and Defensive returning starters. 

Offense
WR Jeric Magnant, 6' 0'' 185 Sr.
WR Marquis Bundy, 6' 4'' 210 Jr.
LG  Jamal Price, 6' 5'' 315 Sr.
C   LaMar Bratton 6' 0'' 295 Sr.
RT John Vizcaino, 6' 2'' 275 Jr
.

Defense
DE Brett Bowers, 6' 2''  270 Sr.
LB Javarie Johnson, 6' 4'' 248 Sr.
LB Dakota Cox, 6' 0'' 229 So.
CB Cranston Jones, 5' 8'' 170 Jr.
SS  David Guthrie, 5' 9'' 210 Sr.

 

The Verdict:


Last year the Lobos seemed to have taken two steps back in 2013 after making some progress toward the end of the 2012 season. This year they look much less capable of beating what will be a solid senior led Roadrunner team here at the Dome.

Never underestimate the opponent but we do expect the Roadrunners to dominate this non-conference game from start to finish as the Roadrunners  “open up the whole can of whip ass” on what seems to be a “weaker than last year” Lobos team.

“ UTSA held New Mexico (ranked 4th in rushing in 2013) to 193 yards rushing on 42 carries and 84 yards of total passing, in New Mexico last year! “

Last season the Lobos scored twice against a stingy Roadrunner Defense! Once on a fumble return for a touchdown and the other on a busted coverage pass play to a wide open receiver. This year I don't foresee New Mexico scoring more than twice (if that) once again. Looking for a blowout in this one, as the Lobos becomes the hunted.

Notes:

*  Lone San Antonian, OL John Vizcaino, from Lanier HS is listed as a probable starter on offense.

* New Mexico was ranked 120th nationally in passing in 2013.

* Game has been picked up for TV viewing on American Sports Network at 2:30 pm.
