NEW MEXICO (KRQE) – The NMSU football team met with the media on Thursday ahead of the Quick Lane Bowl to take place later this month. The Aggies are facing a Bowling Green team that had a similar run at the end of the season to become bowl eligible.
“You know, from an offensive standpoint, they’ll be a handful for our defensive people to prepare for because they can do so many things,” said Aggies head coach Jerry Kill. “They got so many different formations and they make you think. Sometimes that’s not the best thing you want to do. As a football player you want to be able to react. But, they do a great job offensively and defensively they’re very physical.”
