New Mexico Bowl Prediction - New Mexico Vs. UTSA Football Odds

Bet New Mexico Football PicksVenue: Gildan New Mexico Bowl

When: Sat., Dec. 17 - 2:00pm ET - ESPN

Where: University Stadium (37,457 capacity) – Albuquerque, New Mexico

Who: New Mexico Vs. UTSA

The New Mexico Bowl marks the official kickoff of the 2016 bowl season, and for the second straight year, the New Mexico Lobos are going to be playing a de facto home game. Whereas last year though, they were playing against a legit Power 5 team in Arizona, the UTSA Roadrunners are the ones coming to Albuquerque this season, and there's no doubt that this is a far easier matchup, one which coach Bob Davie has to believe he can lead his team to win in front of a hometown crowd.

Still, it's not easy for the Lobos. It's one thing to play against a team who has had just four or five days to prepare for the triple option. It's another thing to do so against a team who has had three weeks to prepare. The good news for New Mexico is that this game is relatively early in the bowl proceedings, but it's worth remembering that the Roadrunners have never played in a bowl game before, and they might be a little too dumb to realize that they're not supposed to contend in this game.
