Looking back in the past weeks SDSU played a Washington team who likes to play the spread followed by Army who likes to play the triple option. The Aztec defense is lockdown on the running game and does need work with passing. The Aztecs offensive is unstoppable with the double tangent of Walter Kazee and Adam Muema. The two backs are averaging over five yards per carry on the season. Behind a great passing attack lead by Oregon State transfer Ryan Katz and should be All-American tight end Gavin Escobar.

San Diego State (2-3) 

San Diego State beat a bad team in Army and a good FCS team in North Dakota. The Aztecs lost to three very good teams in Fresno State, San Jose State and Washington. The San Diego State defense has played very bad in the fourth quarter so far this season giving up 41 points. The San Diego State ground attack will be the difference in this game vs. Hawaii. Mountain West Conference partner Nevada ran all over Hawaii totaling up over 355 yards on the ground.
