    The Aggies are a rare late-season non-conference opponent.

    I'd like to take this opportunity to say "BOOOOOOO". Then again, I'll still watch it.

    CFN picks NM St as the worst of the 120 FBS teams.

    This stat is telling:
    Average yards per carry: Opponents 5.2 - New Mexico State 2.1

    I don't think there was confusion about the team, but CFN did misidentify the new NM St coach in the 'What to watch for on offense' section. They did correctly name Walker in the second quoted section, which came from the full Preview.

    Taos is in the area, maybe he can give them some munchies.

    This is just too perfect...

    All season long, opposing fans will bring snacks to NMSU games and taunt the Aggies with them.

    They visit The 'Shoe on Halloween.

    Trick or Treat Aggies.

    If CFN's unit rankings are any indication, the Aggies are going to wish they'd spent Halloween in Athens instead of Columbus. I mean, if you're going to travel that far to get hammered, you might as well do it at a big party.

    According to CFN, NMSU has:
    • The Worst Offense
    • The Worst Defense
    • The Worst Offensive Line, and
    • The Worst Defensive Line in the nation
    Their highest unit ranking is for the Defensive Secondary, which comes in at number 111.

    Is this the first or second part of a home/home game? Why are we playing them?

    Edit: I just figured out why we're paying them. Having them come out pays their athletic budget (munchies included) for a year.

    I think this game is such a big waste of time in the middle of the year. We'll probably go pretty deep into the line-up, but I'd hate to lose anyone to any type of injury that late in the season for a meaningless game.

    Just goes to show how large the discrepancy is between the FBS haves and the FBS have-nots.

    "Welcome to Ohio State, where we make it rain 24/7 and have the best of everything and it's awesome all the time. As if that doesn't make you feel salty enough, for 60 minutes we're going to beat you senseless with our bench warmers in front of more people than you've ever seen in one place. Good luck!"

    Edit: Now that I think about it, the Horseshoe can accommodate roughly 5% of the entire population of New Mexico.

    Start time was announced today - and it's a BTN game for TV.

    The noon start on Trick or Treat night is great news for us dads of little ones. I hate when life makes you chose between being a good parent and Buckeye Football. I keep telling myself that its a good thing he's a boy- He may cry now, but he'll understand when he's a dad why I was such a neglectful parent. :wink:

    I don't think there was any chance this game was going to be late enough to cut in to trick or treat time.
