The Auburn Tigers host New Mexico State on Saturday for homecoming, and both teams enter the matchup with a combined two wins on the season. If you take a look at the statistics and NCAA rankings for both teams, you'll understand why both teams have just one win a piece in 2012.

The Tigers and Aggies are near the bottom of the rankings in nearly all the major statistical categories.  Auburn's best ranking is in kickoff returns, ranking 25th out of 120 teams with an average of 25 return yards per game.  They are dead last in total offense this season under new coordinator Scott Loeffler.

The good news for Loeffler is he'll be going up against an Aggies defense that is ranked 102nd in the country.  New Mexico State's opponents are averaging 461 yards of offense per game.

Check it out.
