Players to Watch
QB Haaziq Daniels, RB Timothy Jackson, WR Ben Peterson, LT Parker, Ferguson, DL Joey Woodring, LB Will Trawick, CB Elisha Palm.

[QB] 11/15/2020 – Haaziq Daniels is probable Friday vs New Mexico (Shoulder)
[RB] 10/30/2020 – Kadin Remsberg is out indefinitely (Upper Body)
[QB] 09/27/2020 – Donald Hammond III left the team (Transferred)
(!)[QB] 11/16/2020 – Tevaka Tuioti is downgraded to doubtful Friday vs Air Force (Concussion)
I think Air Force is clearly the better team here. They are about equal in offensive strength but Air Force has the better defense. New Mexico will also likely be missing its starting quarterback (Tevaka Tuioti), who is reportedly pretty good. If that quarterback plays it might be a lot closer.
Air Force 35, New Mexico 17
