NMSU coach DeWayne Walker said that Marcus Anderson will be a game-time decision when the Aggies play the University of Idaho on Saturday.
Anderson tweaked his knee during Wednesday's practice and will be held out of action leading up to the game. He will be evaluated again at that time.
Scheduling: NMSU Athletics Director McKinley Boston said that NMSU has locked up two away games at the University of Minnesota for the 2011 and 2013 seasons. NMSU will receiver $800,000 for each game.
The Aggies are also in discussions with Auburn and Texas for possible away games. The Auburn discussions are farther along than the ones with UT.
Team captains: Captains for Saturday's game will be middle linebacker Jason Scott, defensive tackle E.J. Cannon, wide receiver Todd Lee and offensive tackle David Norman.
The Aggie coaching staff will choose captains this year and the honors will be dictated on a week-by-week basis.
