Auburn (6-4, 3-4 SEC) looks to extend its current winning streak to a season-best four games on Saturday by hosting New Mexico State (8-3, 6-1 Conference USA). The Aggies will provide a stronger-than-usual challenge than most week 11 opponents will, as they have several weapons to choose from.
However, there has been no update on whether or not quarterback Diego Pavia, who leads the team in passing but in rushing as well, will play. Despite the possibility of him being out, Auburn head coach Hugh Freeze is aware that New Mexico State will provide a challenge.
“They’ve gotten better and better and better as the year has progressed. I know Jerry Kill really well. He is one heck of a ball coach, and he’ll have his guys ready,” Freeze said earlier this week. “They’ve continued to improve as the year has gone on, and they’re a very talented team and play extremely hard. So, we’re going to need Jordan-Hare to be at its best, and we need to keep the momentum going.”
