New Mexico Highlands plays the current No. 1 team in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference — Nebraska-Kearney — on Saturday, looking for what would be a monumental upset.
The visiting Lopers are 5-1 overall and 4-0 in the RMAC, tied with Colorado School of Mines for the top spot. And they are the 21st ranked team in NCAA Division II.
NMHU is 0-6 and 0-4 in league play after falling 51-7 at defending RMAC champ Chadron State.
Kickoff is 1 p.m. at Perkins Stadium.
