NMSU vs. San Jose State: Where rescheduling the game stands

LAS CRUCES, New Mexico -- The Aggies game against the Spartans on Saturday, Oct. 22 was postponed due to the death of running back Camdan McWright early Friday morning.

Since then NMSU have been working vigorously to either try and reschedule the game or find a replacement team.

Whether the game gets rescheduled is still up in the air as of Monday evening.

The only date the Aggies could replay San Jose State is Dec. 3rd but that's only if the Spartans don't play in their conference championship - right now they are first in the west in the Mountain West.

NMSU Athletic Director Mario Moccia told ABC-7 that playing on Dec. 3rd is not their top preference and they would rather find a different opponent for their bye week on Nov. 5th.

The four teams available are two Mountain West teams - Wyoming and Nevada and two future members of Conference USA - Sam Houston State and Jacksonville State.

Moccia told ABC-7 he is currently in contact with all of them.

If none of those teams pan out, Moccia said they will then start looking at FCS schools.

The Aggies were meant to pay San Jose State $200,000 for the game which means they can now use that money to pay another school to play them.

Moccia told ABC-7 the cutoff date for finding a new team will probably be early next week.

There are certainly options on the table for the Aggies, but for other teams it will come down to what they can get out of it and if it is worth it.
