LSU vs. New Mexico State: BIG. GAME. PREVIEW. A potent cocktail of love and bullets.

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

Paul Crewe here. Back with yet another, BIG. GAME. PREVIEW. Tough loss last week. Deep down we all know State cheated (Stompgate 2.0, plus, since when can a quarterback run and throw?). We'll let them enjoy their spoils, because when they lose the next 8 in a row, it'll be funny to be ahead of them in the standings yet again.

Anywho, a new week, a new opponent. This time, we get the Aggies. No, not those Aggies, the other Aggies. The ones from New Mexico. Er, New Mexico State. Wreck 'em. Gig 'em. Sic 'em. Hook 'em. Whatever 'em you guys do. Oh that's a Texas thing? Okay. Ummm, so what do you do in New Mexico besides smoke pot and climb mountains? Oh that's it. Okay. Welp.

What Came First: The Aggies or the Aggies?

Won't You Be My Neighbor?

This is Mr. Tyler Rogers. He plays quarterback for New Mexico State but he also hosts a children's television show where he changes cardigans and shoes regularly, sings songs, talks to puppets and plays with toy trains.

If this were a television show in 2014, Chris Hansen would walk out the closet.

"Why don't you have a seat?" Chris Hansen says.

"Awww, man, I knew it!" says Mr. Tyler Rogers.

"You knew what? What's in the bag?" says Chris Hansen.

*Tyler Rogers hands over bag

*Hansen sorts through bag finds 24 hand puppets.

"What were you going to do with these puppets?" Hansen plies.

"Those are my friends. They live in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe. It's a fictional kingdom," says Rogers.

"Oh god, you really are a monster." Hansen gasps.

Striking The Wonder Dog

New Mexico State carries a pretty cool tradition wherein a border collie runs onto the field and fetches kicking tees after the kickoffs. Pretty neat little trick, no? Striking replaced Smoki, the original Wonder Dog. Here's a pic of Striking in action:

But I decided to test his real skills. Just what all could The Wonder Dog actually fetch?

Striking, bring me a beer. Nothin' snooty.

Nmsuwonderdogbeer_medium

Gooooooood boooyyyyyy!

Striking, bring me a taco!

Nmsuwonderdogtaco_medium

Well, that's a pretty gross looking taco, but I guess I can't be picky. Gooooooood boooyyyyyy!

Striking, bring me the head of Alfredo Garcia!

Nmsuwonderdogalfredo_medium

Gooooooood boooyyyyyy!

Striking, bring me Nick Saban!

Nmsuwonderdogsaban_medium

Gooooooood boooyyyyyy! You're a good boy, Striking, aren't you!?

YOU SURE YOU WANT SOME?

A potent cocktail of love and bullets describes pretty much every Les Miles gameplan ever.

Aggie Standoff!

Aggiefaceoff_medium

Because there's nothing more intimidating than a strange young man with a fake moustache, assless chaps and a pair of cap guns.

Wait, that is pretty god damn frightening, actually. Everyone abort. Leave now. Bring your valuables. And children.

Please, LSU, why don't you play with my train with me?

Sad Tyler Rogers is sad.

Put me in, Coach

Doug Martin, New Mexico State's head coach, played football at Kentucky. He played QB there from 1981-1984.

In 1982 Martin played in 8 games, completed only 47% of his passes, threw 1 TD to 6 INTs, and managed only 5.0 YPA. He rushed for -79 yards.

Kentucky did not win a single football game in 1982.

Doug Martin never played in another game.

BLOW IT UP! BLOW. IT. ALL. UP.

Tough loss? The only solution is to blow it up. Get out your ACME supply and unload. BOOM!

I-Formation? BOOM!

Anthony Jennings as starter? KA-POW!

D.J. Welter? BA-BOOOSH!

Inside Toss? POW POW POW

John Chavis' Defensive Schemes? CA-CRACK

South Endzone expansion? Aw, hell, why not. BA-BOOOM!

Let's go ahead and get Javi Sanchez while we're at it. So what if he's already gone. CRUMP!

GENIUS!

The Man With No Name

Lesmilesnoname_medium

I would tell you to draw, but you're already dead. Such is what happens when you encounter the Man with No Name. Beaten but not dead, LSU comes back this week with a merciless vengeance and exhausts their frustrations upon a hapless bunch of Aggies. The quick and the dead; this one will be over before you know it.

LSU: 56
NMSU: 5
