Tuesday we looked at the first four Mountain West schools that’ll appear on PAC-12 schedules in the fall. Today we conclude by looking at the rest of the teams that you’ll be seeing at a stadium near you (or traveling to).
New Mexico Lobos – 3-9/1-7 MWC, Bob Davie’s rebuilding project continues to year three in Albuquerque. While his record hasn’t been great in conference play Davie’s team has 14 losses with seven by a touchdown or less. He’ll have a squad that returns 13 players (seven offense/six defense) plus hosts Fresno, San Diego and Boise State this season at University Stadium. They’ll host Arizona State on Saturday, September 6 with a scheduled 4 pm kickoff on CBS Sports Network.

Coming off a 49-24 victory in the Idaho Potato Bowl against Buffalo they’ll field a team with just 10 retuning players with six on offense/four defense.
