The Texas A&M Aggies continue their nonconference schedule Saturday at Kyle Field against the New Mexico Lobos.
The Lobos are looking to turn things around from a forgettable 2020, and are off to a good start at 2-0.
UNM ranked 95th in passing nationally last season at 198.0 yards per game. That's changed with Kentucky graduate transfer Terry Wilson at quarterback. Wilson was a bona fide SEC starter with 25 SEC games under his belt, and a huge upgrade for the Lobos.
Through two games against Houston Baptist and in-state rival New Mexico State, Wilson has passed for 556 yards and six touchdowns with no interceptions. That's an average of 278 yards per game, already a huge increase over last season.
The Lobos rushed for 195.7 yards per game in 2020. That was good enough for 36th nationally since there was no real option at quarterback. That's dropped to 153.5 yards per game this season with the added emphasis on the passing game.
New Mexico averaged of just 23.9 points in 2020, 96th in the country. Through two games in 2021 that's increased to 30.5.
