Nevada-New Mexico Preview

New Mexico was humbled for one game, with an atrocious offensive performance leading to its first conference loss. But the Lobos bounced back with a gritty road win to maintain control atop the Mountain West Conference standings and now have a chance to keep rolling.

Cincinnati vs New Mexico Preview

Tonight at 9 on ESPN2, the 8th ranked Cincinnati Bearcats play host to the dangerous New Mexico Lobos.
