Fresno State Comes In As heavy Favorites, Aggies Showing Signs Of Hope

The Fresno State Bulldogs are the overwhelming favorites going into Saturday’s night matchup against 0-4 New Mexico State, but the underdogs have a found silver lining in the midst of their losing streak.

Here is how the game is expected to play out according to writers around the country covering the two teams . . .

“Some intrepid bettors may end up sweating the substantial spread that Vegas has laid out, but even that doesn’t seem likely. A mistake-free performance should enable the ‘Dogs win this one going away and get a boost of confidence heading into Mountain West play.”

“I don’t see any way the Bulldogs leave Las Cruces in disappointing fashion like they did in 2011, but Fresno State’s defense will dictate whether this is a blowout or a shootout. And the ‘Dogs should move the ball with ease, but they must be much more efficient than the 5-of-12 successful scoring attempts they had when reaching midfield against the Hornets, or this game could get scary.”

“While the result of last weekend’s battle for New Mexico was deflating for the Aggies, the sudden boom on offense, consisting of nearly 500 total yards of offense and a team-high in scoring by a mile, is a good sign for an NM State group that could barely string together a drive two weeks ago.”

“Fresno State is the fourth Aggie opponent that produced a No. 42 or better scoring defense in 2018 . . .
The Bulldogs are allowing a shade below 30 points per game, and rank No. 86 in passing defense at 246.3 yards allowed per game . . .
Stopping the run has been a challenge for the New Mexico State defense. The Aggies rank No. 122 nationally at 238.25 yards given up per game.”
