Saturday’s New Mexico Highlands football home game could be pivotal in determining the Cowboys’ standing in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference this fall.
The Colorado Mesa Mavericks bring identical overall and league records at 2-2 and 1-1, respectively. They lost a close one Sept. 21 at then-No. 21 nationally ranked Chadron State, 30-24, then clobbered Black Hills State last week by a 49-11 count.
Kickoff is 1 p.m. at Perkins Stadium.
