Thoughts on New Mexico State - Predictions and Keys to Success
I haven't really heard that much about NMSU. I know that they had to postpone their home opener against Nichols State because of the hurricane. This opening game probably won't be rescheduled, so they only have one game and 32 practices under their belt before the Nebraska match up. Their leading returning rusher, Tonny Glynn, is their smaller speedy back, who produced 456 yards and scored four touchdowns last year. Hmm, seems a little inexperienced.
Vegas has the Huskers beating New Mexico by 24.5 points. I don't see us blowing them out by that much, unless we dramatically improve from our sloppy play from San Jose State.
What specifically does Nebraska need to do beat New Mexico State?
We obviously need to cut down the idiotic penalties (*cough*, three false start penalties in a row against SJSU?!!!!!).
Our defense didn't seem to have the spark and intensity like it did against Western Michigan, too. What's going on?
