ESPN Insider Adam Rittenberg says that NMSU is the biggest disappointment thus far in the WAC. He writes "There are no major letdowns, but New Mexico State probably expected a little more, especially with quarterback Chase Holbrook back under center. The Aggies are only 1-3 against Football Bowl Subdivision foes. They were blanked 58-0 by Boise State, marking their first shutout since Sept. 10, 2005, against Colorado. Nevada was picked third by the coaches in the preseason poll, but injuries and inconsistent defense have led to a 2-3 start." (Thanks Roberto)

The News Star writes that Saturday's game between NMSU and Louisiana Tech will be one of teams with young quarterbacks starting.
