New Mexico Lobos 2016 Schedule Breakdown

The bus moves on to the ABQ, and a look at the New Mexico Lobos for 2016:

9/3 South Dakota
9/10 at New Mexico State
9/17 at Rutgers
10/1 San Jose State
10/8 Boise State
10/15 Air Force (at Dallas)
10/22 UL-Monroe
10/29 at Hawaii
11/5 Nevada
11/12 at Utah State
11/19 at Colorado State
11/26 Wyoming

Notes: The Lobos have a real shot at an undefeated September with likely wins over South Dakota and New Mexico State, and a win over Big 10 doormat Rutgers. The Rutgers game will be a tough go, but that road game could be a huge get for the Lobos early in the season.
UNM could get a huge boost in October and already be bowl eligible heading into November with wins coming against San Jose State, Air Force, ULM, and Hawaii. I Project a loss at home to Boise State.
November will bring the Lobos back to Earth somewhat. I see wins over Nevada and Wyoming, but tough losses at Utah State and Colorado State.
All said, the Lobos could be a dark horse team that nobody is talking about early on.
Overall Projected Record: 9-3
