The UTSA Roadrunners and the New Mexico Lobos will both be trying to pick up a win on Saturday when they battle at University Stadium.

ABOUT UTSA (6-6): The Roadrunners rely heavily on their 1-2 rushing punch of senior Jarveon Williams, the program’s all-time leading ground gainer, and sophomore Jalen Rhodes, who have combined for 1,903 yards from scrimmage and 18 touchdowns this season. UTSA’s passing attack is average all around under junior quarterback Dalton Strum, who averages 192.9 yards of total offense per game and has accounted for 22 total TDs with junior wide receivers Josh Stewart (36 receptions-682 yards-five TDs) and Kerry Thomas Jr. (31-510-8) serving as his top targets. Defensively, the Roadrunners ranked third in C-USA with an average of 28.3 points and fourth with an average of 400 yards allowed per game, and are led by freshman linebacker Josiah Tauaefa – the first UTSA player to earn first-team all-Conference-USA honors – who currently ranks third among FBS freshmen in tackles with a program single-season-record 104 total stops, including 7.5 tackles for loss.

ABOUT NEW MEXICO (8-4): On the legs of running backs Teriyon Gibson (120.9 yards per game, 12 TDs) and Tyrone Owens (98.5 yards, seven TDs), the Lobos and their option attack lead the FBS in all the major rushing categories, including total yards (4,331), yards per game (360.9) and yards per carry (6.81). Quarterbacks Lamar Jordan and Austin Apodaca have shared time, but the former is the more potent rushing threat with 658 yards and three TDs on the ground for New Mexico, which averaged a Mountain West-best 37.8 points per outing and is fewer than 100 yards away from setting a school single-season record for total offense. Defensive linemen Nik D’Avanzo (60 total tackles) and Garrett Hughes (team-most 6.5 sacks) were All-Mountain West second-team selections and lead a unit which allows 32.4 points and 397.3 yards per game.

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Lobos listed as 7½-point favorites versus the Roadrunners, while the game’s total is sitting at 64.

1. It will be a program participating in its first bowl game against a school playing in rather-familiar territory Dec. 17 when Texas-San Antonio tangles with New Mexico on its own University Stadium turf in the Gildan New Mexico Bowl on Dec. 17 in Albuquerque. The Roadrunners, of Conference USA, beat Charlotte 33-14 in their regular-season finale to earn a bowl invitation in their sixth season of play, matching the FBS earliest-bowl-bid record shared by South Alabama (2014) and Georgia State (2015). Meanwhile, the Lobos of the Mountain West Conference will be making their second straight and fourth overall New Mexico Bowl appearance in the 11-year history of the post-season contest.

2. Guided by fifth-year coach Bob Davie, 8-4 New Mexico is in the midst of its best season in a decade and is seeking the fifth nine-win campaign in the program’s 85-year history. The Lobos, however, are 3-8-1 in bowl games, including 1-2 in the New Mexico Bowl, and its 2007 New Mexico Bowl win over Nevada stands as its only bowl victory since 1961. The Lobos went 5-1 in Albuquerque this season, and won six of its last seven games overall to earn a share of the Mountain West Mountain Division title at 6-2.

3. Like the Mountain West, Conference USA also is sending seven teams to bowls, with UTSA joining Old Dominion as first-time FBS post-season participants. The Roadrunners are guided by first-year coach Frank Wilson, who had spent the previous 11 seasons as an SEC assistant, and they finished second in the C-USA’s West Division with a 5-3 record. UTSA went 3-4 against bowl qualifiers during the regular season and played the two Power Five opponents – Arizona State and Texas A&M – tough in 32-28 and 23-10 losses, respectively.

New Mexico won its last outing, a 56-35 result against Cowboys on November 26. New Mexico covered in that game as a +3-point underdog, while the 91 combined points took the game OVER the total.

UTSA was a 33-14 winner in their most recent outing at home against 49ers. They covered the -12-point spread as favorites, while the total score (47) made winners of UNDER bettors.
