So far, the New Mexico State Aggie football team has been improved this year.
The team has better personnel at some key positions, is better offensively and is more entertaining.
And the Aggies have been more competitive. The team won on the road at Big Ten Minnesota — the Gophers haven’t looked good this year — and beat itself against UTEP. But this brings up an interesting point: the Aggies were actually good enough to beat themselves. Usually the team just got beat. This year they lost a game they should have won.
At the beginning of the year many fans said they wanted to see the Aggies be in games and hopefully get some wins along the way. With that being said, it feels like the team is moving in the right direction.
NMSU still has to go to Hawaii, Georgia, BYU and Louisiana Tech. They still host Nevada, Fresno State and Utah State. The tough part of their schedule awaits.
