Idaho running back Deonte Jackson suffered a high ankle sprain and has not been getting the same amount of carries he normally would the last few weeks.
Jacskon is second in the WAC in rushing - he's also played one more game than Ian Johnson of Boise who is ranked first. Still, he averages over 5-yards per carry and is clearly their best weapon. The loss of him makes the Vandal attack even worse.
NMSU needs to stop Idaho's offense. The Vandal attack hasn't been very good this year and NMSU is on its homefield. They shut down Idaho's ground game, they win in a laugher.
