The San Diego State defense had its best game of the season at Nevada. The Aztec run defense which is the best in the Mountain West held the best running back in the nation to 108 yards. His lowest yards total this season. The Aztecs offensive struggled under starter Ryan Katz and unfortunately has been lost for the season with a fractured ankle. That was most likely the last time we see Katz playing on the field in an Aztec uniform. The Aztecs are now 5-3 after the upset against Nevada and will attempt to beat UNLV this coming Saturday. Should the Aztecs beat UNLV they will be bowl eligible for the third consecutive season. The Aztecs have never been bowl eligible in three straight seasons. We predict a massive SDSU blow out of UNLV this Saturday.

- 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 five yards per carry on the season. Behind a great passing attack lead by the new starting quarterback Adam Dingwell and should be All-American tight end Gavin Escobar.
