as Arizona takes on New Mexico in a true road game next Saturday. The Wildcats will have a limited amount of time to prep for the Lobos' triple option attack. Arizona, who limped to a 1-4 finished, allowed 200+ yards on the ground each of its last four games. And if you eliminate their 77-13 win over Northern Arizona, the Cats were outscored on the season 415-364. Meanwhile, New Mexico scored November wins over bowl-bound Utah State, Boise State and Air Force. They were outgained however 449-295 in an early season 34-10 loss to Arizona State.
“You weigh your pros and cons,” Rodriguez said when playing a postseason game on another team’s own turf. “I think with New Mexico it’s their area, being from here and being in their home town. They don’t have to adjust to anything.”
