SP+ Predicts New Mexico 2022 Football Schedule
Lobos enter third year with Danny Gonzales
Will the offense catch up to the defense?
The third year for Danny Gonzales is hoping to provide an uptick in wins. The offense sputtered with QB Terry Wilson getting injured early on and that basically derailed the Lobos from being more competitive. The defense looks to build upon being a decent unit and get better.
Transfers and players moving on from offense will be tough but it also will give new players a chance to step up and make a difference.
Bill Connelly’s first edition of SP+ recently came out with its first edition of where teams are ranked heading into the 2022 season. Now we will use those numbers to predict the record of each Mountain West school, and then determine who is expected to be the very early champion.
New Mexico’s SP+ starts out as 126th and their projected record is 2-10.
