Meanwhile, the Lobos strolled past the Aztecs with points to spare on Saturday, taking the game 88-70. The victory came about thanks to a strong surge starting at the 5:46 mark of the first half, when New Mexico was facing a 35-23 deficit.

Some high-performance offense is likely on the agenda as Utah State and New Mexico are some of the highest scoring teams in the league.
