San Diego State will play host to Air Force at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego, California. A showdown of two first place teams in Mountain West Conference .San Diego State must win this game to insure they win the Mountain West Conference championship. The Aztec run defense which is the best in the Mountain West is looking forward to taking on the Air Force triple option run game. The Aztecs are now 7-3 (5-1) after upsetting Boise State to hold a share of the Mountain West Conference Championship should the Aztecs win out. We predict SDSU will blow out Air Force as they did last season.

NCAA SEASON LEADERS FBS

Team Total Offensive Pass YPG Rush YPG Pass Def Run Def
SDSU 59th 101st 22nd  94th  27th
AFA 24th 116th 3rd  86th  114th
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.

San Diego State Overall (7-3) Conf (5-1)

San Diego State beat a bad team in Army, Colorado State, Hawaii, UNLV and a good FCS team in North Dakota. San Diego State upset two of the best teams in the nation (home records) No.19 Boise State and Nevada.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 61 points. The San Diego State ground attack and rush defense will be the difference against the Boise State Broncos.

Loss at Washington = 21 – 12

Win vs. Army = 45 – 7

Win vs. North Dakota = 49 – 41

Loss vs. San Jose State = 34 – 38

Loss vs. Fresno State = 40 – 52

Win vs. Hawaii = 52 – 14

Win vs. Colorado State = 38 – 14

Win vs. Nevada = 39 – 38 (OT)

Win vs. UNLV = 24 – 13

Win vs. Boise State = 21 – 19

Air Force 5-4 Conf (4-1)

Now lets break down the Air Force schedule up to this point in the season. Air Force lost to a good Michigan team. Air Force also lost to a horrible team in UNLV and Army. Air Force has won games against three bad teams Colorado State, Idaho State and New Mexico. Air Force has only one quality win so far on the schedule and that came from their 48 to 31 win at home over Nevada. Air Force offense is one of the more potent offensives in the nation. Air Force offense is ranked 24th in total offense as shown in the chart above. The Air Force offense is going to have to play a flawless game in the turnover battle and the Air Force defense is going to have to shut down the San Diego State run game if they want to have any chance at beating the Aztecs.

Win vs. Idaho State = 49-21

Loss vs. Michigan = 31-25

Loss vs. UNLV = 38-35

Win vs. Colorado State = 41-21

Loss vs. Navy = 28-21 (OT)

Win vs. Wyoming = 28-27

Win vs. New Mexico = 28-23

Win vs. Nevada = 48-31

Loss vs. Army = 41-21
