Can the New Mexico Lobos go into Austin and upset Texas?

The New Mexico Lobos (1-0) will look to do against the Texas Longhorns (1-0) what the Wyoming Cowboys failed to do last week: hold, maintain and beat Texas. The Cowboys briefly held a lead, but eventually fell, 37-17. For the Lobos, this game should be the toughest test all season.

The Lobos opened the season with a 66-21 victory over the FCS Southern University Jaguars, picking up 347 yards and five touchdowns on the ground. But the team will likely have a hard time to put up similar numbers against the Longhorns. Texas has a strong defense and held Wyoming to 69 rushing yards.

Texas had been losing to Wyoming, 9-7, into the second quarter, but Wyoming quarterback Brett Smith threw interceptions on back-to-back drives, both of which resulted in Texas scoring touchdowns on their ensuing drives. David Ash completed 20 of 27 passes for 156 yards and one touchdown, but it was running backs Joe Bergeron and Malcolm Brown that powered the offense, gaining a combined 215 rushing yards and three touchdowns.

Location: Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium, Austin, Texas
