New Mexico State plays at Washington State in one week.
I’m expecting NM State to put out its official two-deep over the weekend or early next week. But this is from what I’ve seen in practice and some flat out guesses in some of the back up positions to be honest.
There will be some surprises to some of you as some players who I believed would be starters may have been beaten out by younger guys.

At any rate, here is the offense and defense two-deep for Washington State.
From a special teams standpoint, Jason Huntley and Tony Nicholson have been getting kick return reps, OJ Clark and Nicholson at punt return and kicker Dylan Brown and punter Payton Theisler are pretty well established.
X WR Robert Downs Jr; Shae Holbrook Sr.
H WR 2 OJ Cark (RSr); Terrell Warner (RSo.)
Y WR 10 Izaiah Lottie (RSr); 21 Anthony Muse (RSr)
Z WR Tony Nicholson (Grad); Drew Dan (Jr.)
LT 78 Brian Trujillo (RSr); 67 Marlin Johnson Fr.
LG Tony Bello (RSR); 54 Isaiah Mursalat (RFr);
C: 71 Max Wilhite (RFr); 78 Brian Trujillo (RSr);
RG 50 Austin Young (Fr); 55 Garrison Tullos (Jr)
RT 52 Jalen Guerrero (Jr); 73 Luteru Fedler (Fr)
QB 14 Josh Adkins (RSo); 3 Matt Romero (Sr)
RB 1 Jason Huntley (Sr); 25 Christian Gibson (RSr)
As you can tell, I left Sage Doxtater off of the two-deep for Washington State. We should find out if he’s able to play on Tuesday, but he hasn’t been practicing.
DE 28 Shane Jackson (RSr); 12 Ja’Marvin Hartfield FR
DT 51 Roy Lopez (Sr); 94 Jomaious Williams (Jr)
NT 99 Myles Vigne (RJr); 94 Jomaious Williams (Jr)
DE 10 Cedric Wilcots II (RSr); 88 Xander Yarberough (Jr)
Will 47 Devin Richardson (RFr); 4 Joshua Ferguson (Fr)
Mike 7 Javahn Fergurson (RSr); 80 Trevor Brohard (RSo)
Sam 23 Rashie Hodge (Jr); 20 Jonathan Hood (RSr);
CB 1 Ray Buford Jr (Sr); 29 Jared Phipps (Sr)
CB 22 Shamad Lomax (Sr); 5 Komotay Koffie (Sr)
SS 21 Rodney McGraw II (So); 11 Chance Cook (Grad);
FS 19 Austin Perkins (RSr); 2 Christopher Bell (Jr)
Other players who I believe will play a lot will be defensive lineman Donovan King and Tevan McAdams on the defensive line. I also think we could see a lot of guys play linebacker throughout the season as there is some decent depth in the front seven.
