New Mexico State by the numbers

Last number is national rank and listed last.

Scoring - 28.4 ppg - 60th
Rushing - 121.25 ypg - 94th
Passing - 297.3 ypg - 15th
Total - 418.3 ypg - 45th
Kickoff returns - 25.49 yards per return - 12th
Punt returns - 6 yards per return - 90th
Turnover margin - +2 - 43rd
Sacks allowed - 2.63 per game - 93rd
Tackles for loss allowed - 5.38 TFL per game - 45th
3rd down conversions - 38.26% - 80th

Defense -
Scoring - 32.5 ppg - 98th
Rushing - 214.38 ypg - 111th
Passing - 228.3 ypg - 65th
Total - 442.6 ypg - 106th
3rd down conversions allowed - 40.19% - 56th
Sacks - 1.63 per game - 82nd
Tackles for loss - 4.25 per game - 110th

Overall New Mexico State has given up more points and yards than it has gained. Georgia will have to sure up the kickoff coverage as New Mexico State is one of the best in the country at returning kickoffs. The offensive line for Georgia should be able to do a good job as New Mexico State is near the bottom of the country in sacks and tackles for loss. The only major area that they really stand out is passing offense and kickoff returns. Their starting running back does average 5.34 yards per carry but as a team they are averaging only 3.58 ypc and they don't run the ball often. With the way Georgia's pass rush has been lately I like to see that they 93rd in the nation in allowing sacks.
